Mrs. Georgette Lee
The sun rose on the life of Mrs. Georgette Ann Summers-Lee on March 11, 1959 in Amarillo, Texas when she was born to George and Nannie Jane Summers. The fifth of eight children, Georgette had two brothers, George Allen (her twin) and Vince and five sisters, Flowrenda, Oralee, Dorene, Vicki and Nannette. A happy and fun loving child, she always loved playing with her dolls. One day her twin took her doll and ran outside. Georgette ran after him and hit him with a rock, then cried because she saw blood. She was educated in the public school system and graduated from George Washington High School.
On July 6, 2013, Georgette was united in marriage with DeWayne Lee, whom she had met in 1996. The couple exchanged their vows in Cherry Park in Denver, Colorado. No children were born to this union, but she became the loving stepmother to two children. “Everyone’s child was her child.” To her many “grandchildren” she was “Grandmom GG”, loved and dearly missed.
A woman of faith, Georgette was a member of Greater St. John Baptist Church. By profession a cook, she was employed with Aramark for the past five years. She was employed the longest with Denver Public Schools. In her free time she enjoyed family, friends, movies, cooking, baking and casinos. Her best friends, Ruthie, Kay-Kay, Debra and her sisters will always remember her outstanding love and friendship.
Her favorite colors were purple, pink and mauve. She loved carnations and most enjoyed R&B. Favorite recording artists were JaRule & Sade. “She enjoyed life by making others happy.” Her twin remembers she was a very caring sister. If you were down she would find a way to pick you up and make you laugh it off. “G.G. Lee, how you be? Your twin loves and misses you dearly.”
The sun set on the life of Mrs. Georgette Ann Lee on January 28, 2017. She is preceded in death by her parents. Those left to cherish her memory include her husband, two brothers, five sisters, two step children, nine grandchildren, one brother-in-law, two sisters-in-law and a host of nieces, nephews, cousins, other relatives and friends.
Rest in peace...Georgette
