Obituary

Georgia Katherine Roudebush passed away peacefully at the age of 93 on December 22, 2020. She had been residing at the Landing of Long Cove for the past 20 months. She was preceded in death by her beloved husband Richard (Dick) of 46 years, by her siblings Marjorie Carpenter, Alice Barton, and Ralph Lach and her parents Carl and Julia Lach of Bracken Co. Ky. She is survived by her son Richard (Luann) Roudebush, and daughters Cheryl (Rob) Giesse and Melissa (Dave) Burkhart. She was blessed with 5 wonderful grandchildren Karri (Gordon) Perry, Rick (Kendall) Roudebush, Trey Giesse, Kyle Burkhart and Bryant Burkhart. She also had 7 great grandchildren Lydia Perry, William Perry, Macey Roudebush, Amelia Roudebush, Reese Roudebush, Joseph Burkhart and Myia Burkhart. Georgia was a collector of antiques, teddy bears and all things miniature. She was a member of the Miniature Society of Cincinnati for over 20 years. Georgia was a wonderful cook and her fresh baked apple dumplings, pecan pie and lemon meringue pie were all special. She loved sharing her wisdom and her best recipes with the world. She grew up in an era of sharing, and giving for the greater good. A survivor, having endured the Great Depression and WWII, she profoundly understood what it meant to be a responsible part of the community and the importance of meaningful friendships. Always a creative soul, Georgia started a home cottage venture in the early 1950’s named The Carol Shop. A variety of Christmas decorations from handmade wreaths, cherubs, urns and candles were lovingly created with the help of her husband. The raw materials of leaves, berries and floral tape were purchased by the gross from Cappel’s supply. Her home on Robertson Ave. was as busy as Santa’s workshop from June through November. All those exclusive handmade creations were sold at the Golden Lamb and Closson’s of Cincinnati. She outlived all her close friends and family from the Norwood Christian Church where they enjoyed spending time together at church potluck dinners. Many of her friends and family spent hours at picnics at Robinson Park in Pleasant Ridge. They would have monthly card parties where the laughter was infectious and the losers had to buy coney’s from Smiley’s Chili parlor in Norwood. Her daughters Cheryl Giesse and Missy Burkhart had been Georgia’s trusted caretakers for years. They made sure her golden years were meaningful. As well as being a fabulous cook, with a knack for decorating, a thrift-shopping enthusiast, a stickler for good manners and good behavior. She was a dedicated daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother. Georgia was a special person one could hardly forget, and those fortunate enough to know her, have many fond memories. She was so many wonderful things to so many people in her 93 years. Our family will miss her dearly.The family requests donations to Hospice of Cincinnati or Wounded Warriors.
