Georgie Lee Hotchkiss Munday was born April 11, 1922, in Winthrop.
Georgie went through elementary and high school at Winthrop. After graduation she went to Seattle and worked at The Boeing Co. as a riveter until she was married April 14, 1944, to Jim Munday. Jim was in the U.S. Army in California so they lived in Riverside, California, until Jim was sent overseas to France and Germany. Georgie then returned to Seattle and worked until the war was over.
When Jim came home from Europe they lived in Burbank, California, for a while where Jim’s family had moved from Twisp. Georgie and Jim returned to Winthrop, where they had three children: Teresa Lee, Bradley James and Roberta Jane.
In 1952 they moved to Kittitas, Washington, where Jim was employed by a cattle company. Mark Charles was born while they lived there. Later, Jim was employed by the State Department of Fisheries at Auburn, Washington, as a heavy equipment operator. The family moved to Algona, Washington. When a new hatchery was built on the Kalama River in southwest Washington, Jim was transferred there and the family moved to Kalama, until his retirement.
Later, when all the children were scattered, Georgie and Jim moved to Oakland, Oregon, where Jim died Oct. 10, 1990.
Georgie moved to St. Helens, Oregon, in 1993 to be nearer family. Teresa and family live there and son Mark lives in Shelton, Washington. Brad and Roberta live in Georgia.
Georgie died very peacefully on Oct. 29, 2016, with family at her side. She is preceded in death by her parents Reuben and Mercedes; a sister, Jane, who died in 2005; brothers Charles, who died in 1992, and William, who died in 1930.
She will be buried next summer beside Jim in Winthrop.
