Georgia Mary Shimanek


Georgia Mary Shimanek, 88 left this world Wednesday December 21, 2022. Georgia was born November 13, 1934 to Ed and Frances Havlik Shimanek in Hennessey. She was welcomed by three brothers and two sisters with two more sisters and a brother to follow. 

Georgia resided east of Hennessey all of her life with her sister and best friend Mildred. Georgia could always be found out with her chickens, in their garden, or watching OU Football. She also loved country music with Don Williams being her favorite. 

She was an active member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church. She was always known to make her chicken and noodles and kolaches for any fund raising event.

Georgia is survived by her sisters Mildred Shimanek of the home, and Mary Stroda of Ramona, Kansas.

She was preceded in death by her parents Ed and Frances, brothers Benedict, Raymond, Edward, Thomas, and sisters Martha Mages and Wilma Shimanek. 

Georgia leaves behind many nieces and nephews with grand memories of building homemade kites and walking barefoot through the creeks.

Mass of Christian Burial will be at 10:00 AM Tuesday December 27, 2022 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church officiated by Rev. Edward Menasco. Burial will follow at Calvary Cemetery under the direction of Cordry-Gritz Funeral Home.
