Georgia Joan Kenney Elliott
Our wife and mother treasure has withdrawn the earthly life that was imposed on her on the morning of March 1, 2021, surrounded by her husband Randy and their children. Because Alzheimer’s had taken away her brilliant mind, quick mind, and memory of loved ones, her parting was a blessing, although it still leaves a huge space in our hearts that only she could fill. We find comfort in knowing that there has been a happy reunion with loved ones who on the other hand have anxiously waited for them.
Georgia was born on May 25, 1938 in Gunnison, Utah. She grew up in Salt Lake City, where she graduated from South High, and she was proud to be a cub. She was hardworking, but she did not forget to enjoy life too. She loved sports and followed her favorite teams; the old Salt Lake Stars basketball team, the University of Utah Utes, the Oakland / Los Angeles Raiders, and the Utah Jazz. She loved an adventure and was able to travel the world with Randy. They were lucky enough to find each other and for almost 42 years they were able to create many wonderful memories together. Randy cared for her lovingly during her illness and she was able to stay in her home because of his care.
She was a woman, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend who cared deeply and loved with all her heart. She is missing from her family and many friends who became family members.
Georgia was a loyal member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and fulfilled her callings with perfection, born of love for her Savior and those she served. She has performed many services of service and kindness that are not recognized because she was and is so.
She has been a very hard worker and has worked as an office and accountant at the following companies over the years. PIE, VO Young Printing, Blaine Hudson Printing, Rhinehart Oil and Press Publishing. She took pride in her work and always went one step further to make the work of those she worked with easier. She made many lifelong friends / family from every work experience she had.
She is survived by her beloved husband, Randy Elliott; their children Tina Anderson, Ga Neil Winder (Travis), Robert Anderson (Suzan); Stepsons Jim Elliott (Monica), Stephen Elliott, Michael Elliott (Liberty) and Dustin Elliott. She is also survived by her grandchildren Chase Anderson (Lyndsee), Zachary Anderson, Dylon Anderson (Shirrell), Katlyn Winder, McKay Elliott, Kayli Elliott, Jaxon Elliott, Jamison Elliott, Morgan Nelson (Richie), Rick Elliott (Katie). Tylar Elliott, Randall Elliott, William Elliott, Cody Elliott, Chantelle Elliott, and Jaelyn Elliott; together with ten great-grandchildren. Randy’s brother George Elliott (Toni) is also surviving; and many nieces and nephews and their families.
Georgia precedes the death of her daughter Colleen Anderson; her parents-mother Leta Barrows (William) and father Alma Kenney (Marie); her sisters – Maxine West (Milton), Virgina Park (David); her brother Gerry Kenney; a daughter-in-law – Mary Benson and a nephew Greg Park (Nikki).
Family prayer and grave with only one immediate family will be held on Saturday, March 6, 2021, and a well-deserved celebration of life will be planned when Randy is ready and it is safer for us to gather together. The family will keep you all updated so that we can all share the love we have for Georgia. Thank you for your understanding.
“She had success, who lived well, laughed often and loved a lot; who left the world better than she found it; whose life is an inspiration; whose memory, a blessing.”
