Georganne Loudamy, age 57, joined the angels in heaven on January 12, 2010. Georganne, or "Doo" as her grandsons and their friends called her, fought a long and courageous battle with diabetes and its complications.
Georganne was a devoted wife, mother, and grandmother, and a dear friend to many. Always supportive of her husband's career with Johnson and Johnson, she relished the opportunities and adventures associated with living in San Angelo, Texas; Chicago, Illinois; Palo Alto, California; and Yardley, Pennsylvania. All along the way, she made dear friends and wonderful memories. And she eagerly shared her home and her experiences with any who visited. She loved making memories, and she had a passion for sewing, cooking, quilting and oil painting. But none of that compared to her passion for being a special "Doo" to her two grandsons, Luke and Trip Nickel and to their cousins and friends. While her heart was weak, it was big and capable of enveloping all who came near. She had an indomitable and cheerful spirit, and despite illness and pain, always had a smile and a genuine interest in others.
Doo was more than a name for a grandmother. It became a destination; it defined a relationship; and it became a beautiful adjective to describe something unique and loving. To be with Doo was to have her undivided attention.
Georganne is survived by her husband, Gary Loudamy of Lakeway; her daughter, Aime Nickel and son-in-law Brian Nickel; loving grandsons Luke and Trip Nickel, all of Lakeway; and her two sisters, Sharon McLauchlin of Ingram, Texas, and Janice Janes of Isante, Minnesota. She is the niece of Don and Martha Burnham and Stan and Millie Burnham of San Saba. Her San Saba cousins are Reagan Burnham, Renice Burnham, Raelene Freasier, and Diana Manning.
A memorial service was held at 1 p.m. Saturday, January 16, 2010, at Weed-Corley-Fish Funeral Home on RR 620 in Lakeway, Texas.
