Kidzus, Georgene (Oleson)




Georgene Kidzus died on January 9, 2019, at the age of 94. She was a lifelong resident of Harmarville, PA, and never stopped loving the Allegheny River that flowed past her home. She is survived by sons Ted (Ellie) and Larry (Peggy), daughter Amy (Sharon) and daughter-in-law Jan; also by seven grandchildren and eleven great grandchildren. Georgene was a child of the Great Depression and also of the 1936 Allegheny River flood that forced her family to leave their home through a second floor window, into a rowboat oared by an uncle who took the family to safety. Both experiences informed her life and fueled her sense of joy in the things you have rather than in what you don’t. She loved to travel. A favorite destination was Atlantic Beach, North Carolina. She participated in Elderhostel events across the United States and took tours to England, Russia, Germany and Austria. All anyone ever had to say was, “Do you want to go…?” and her answer was “Yes!” For the last three decades she was an avid card player at the Plum and Monroeville Senior Centers. Georgene was predeceased by husband Ed, husband Albert, and eldest son Chuck. She will be missed. Friends and relatives will be received on Friday, January 11, 2019 from 2-4 & 6-8 p.m. at the BURKET-TRUBY FUNERAL HOME CREMATION & ALTERNATIVE SERVICES INC. 421 Allegheny Ave. Oakmont. Funeral Service Saturday, January 12, 2019, 11:00 a.m. in the funeral home. Memorial contributions may be made in her name to the Hamarville Cemetery Association, c/o David Campbell, 505 Bicker Rd. Cabot, PA 16023
