Georgia Kokotovich

May 23, 1925 — February 3, 2017

Georgia Elaine Kokotovich, 91, passed away on Feb. 3, 2017, in the Solvay Hospice House in Duluth, surrounded by her loving family.

Georgia was born on May 23, 1925, in Hibbing, MN, to Carl and Gladys (Beck) Johnson.

She was a graduate of Hibbing HIgh School, class of 1943. She attended Junior College in Hibbing before graduating from the University of Minnesota Twin Cities in Elementary Education.

Her first job was as a first grade teacher in Elgin, IL. She married Eli Kokotovich in Hibbing on June 23rd, 1950, and they raised two sons in Duluth, where they spent most of their lives. She was a homemaker while her sons were young, then later went back to work as a part time teacher.

Georgia was an active member of Asbury United Methodist Church. She held various leadership positions, including serving as a member of the administrative council, the bazaar chairperson, and the Sunday School superintendent for many years. She was a member of the women's circle and served on the UMW board. An avid reader and lifelong learner, she was also a member of the Asbury book club.

Georgia loved spending time with her family. She spent many hours watching her grandchildren's dance recitals, band concerts and sporting events, and in later years she cherished time with her great-grandchildren.

Georgia was a person who selflessly loved others, welcoming everyone into her home.

Georgia was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Audrey Lundeen of Duluth, MN, and her brother and sister-in-law Robert and Georgine Johnson of Texas.

Georgia is survived by her loving husband of 66 years, Eli; sons Joe (Candy) and Steve (Barb); grandchildren Jill (Dan) Lepisto, Amy, Adam (Katie Clower), Matt (Cari), Tim (Brittany Leknes); and great-grandchildren Ale, Kari, Kendall, Ryan, and Abby.
