Georgia Humphrey Gardner, our loving daughter, wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother, great-great grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away peacefully on March 6, 2020 at her home.
Georgia was the third of four children born to Ray Bailey and Cristy Rosalyn Poulsen Humphrey. She was born on George Washington's birthday (or as her father always said, George Birthington's wash day), February 22, 1927, thus the name Georgia. She married Van Johnson Gardner on October 3, 1946 in the Salt Lake Temple. Georgia was a faithful member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. She and Van served a full-time mission to the South Dakota Rapid City Mission from 1993 to 1994 and were ordinance workers in the Manti Temple. She also served in many other Ward and Stake callings.
Georgia was a member of the Buckhorn Promenaders Square Dance Cub with her husband, Van. She also belonged to the Daughters of the Utah Pioneers and the American Legion Auxiliary.

The family wants to thank everyone who has helped take care of grandma during this precious time and a very special thank you to her granddaughter, Cristene, who was there for grandma when she needed her. As a family, we wish to also thank mom's Symbii family; especially Doctor Cameron Williams, Sandy Jensen, RN and Mandy Bennett, CNA with a very special thank you to her hospice angel, Shauna Colonna. They all went above and
