Growing up in Iowa, moving to Minnesota in 1979 and retiring in Tennessee and Alabama, Georgia will be remembered for her enthusiasm of the life she lived.
Georgia was a dedicated homemaker and “fun” mom and also had a career in the Newspaper Industry; working along-side her husband for 20 years at Page 1 Printers in Slayton, MN. Georgia supported her community with numerous events including, Relay for Life, many fundraisers and volunteering with the high school cross-country team.
Georgia’s life might be described as a treasure hunt, searching for items from one of her many many collections. The thrill of the hunt, paired with distractions along the way, created memories that she treasured. It was the items Georgia put on display that kept those memories close-at-hand and ultimately tell her story. Her spirit of adventure and wonder showed in everything she did.
Georgia’s love of photography also captured numerous memories that she held near and dear. Her family’s genealogy was a passion which she kept alive in framed photos and continued expansions.
Georgia found adventure in the smallest things and ventured to great feats. She was an avid bicyclist and participated RAGBRI (a bike ride across Iowa), took a turn at scuba diving and even bungee jumped.
Georgia had a tremendous talent toward hospitality and giving generosity. She cared so well for others.
Georgia was preceded in death by her parents, Charles and Marian Thormann. Georgia’s family cherishing her memory include her loving husband of 55 years, Harlo Schneekloth of Madison, AL; daughter and son-in-law Tam and Jay Dahlgren of Crane Hill, AL; son Todd Kent of Marshall, MN; son Troy Schneekloth of Garvin, MN; grandchildren- Nicholas and Hannah Dahlgren, Taylor and Mac Clark, Indie, Jaz & Cele Finlo, and Tanner Shiller; sister and brother-in-law Jayne and Dick Hahne of Waukee, IA; nieces- Jill (Gary) Hahn of Omaha, NE, Holli (Doug) Wilson of Waukee and their families.
