Georgiana Hrabal, 91, died of natural causes at 8:50 p.m. on Friday, May 4, 2001, in St. Joseph Regional Medical Center, Plymouth. Georgiana had lived at Walnut Creek Care Center, 309 Kingston Ave., since October, 1999, coming from Garden Court West. Born in Chicago, Ill. on April 17, 1910, Georgiana was the daughter of Charles and Antonia Filip Zacharda. She attended Grovertown schools. On August 11, 1927, in Knox, Georgiana and Joseph Hrabal were married. Joseph died on July 13, 1963. From 1964 to 1975, Georgiana became known as one of the “Pie Ladies” at the ever popular Schori’s Restaurant in Plymouth. She was clever with her hands not only with baked goods: she enjoyed flower gardening, crocheting and creating needle-embroidered pictures. Each grandbaby received an original handmade gift at their birth, made lovingly by Georgiana. She had been involved as a volunteer with the Parkview Hospital auxiliary, the Friends of the Library and the Braille Bible work at Calvary Lutheran Church. Four daughters survive their mother’s death. They are: Helen Wentz, Largo, Fla., Evelyn Jacobs, Bourbon, Violet Clemons, Fredonia, N.Y., and Barbara and James Strycker, Plymouth. Five grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren also survive together with a sister, Valasta Hanover, St. Paul, Minn. Georgiana was preceded in death by her parents, her husband and Libby Winje, a sister. Friends may visit with the family on Thursday, May 10, 2001, from 10 to 11 a.m. at the Johnson-Danielson Funeral Home, 1100 N. Michigan St., Plymouth. Funeral services will follow visitation at the funeral home at 11 a.m., conducted by the Rev. Maurice Grindle, pastor of the Trinity United Methodist Church. Burial will be in the Grovertown Cemetery, Grovertown. Memorial gifts in Georgiana’s memory may be made to the St. Joseph Regional Medical Center.
