Obituary

Georgia Weaver Danielson, 73, passed away at 12:15pm on Friday, March 13, 2020—surrounded by loved ones. She is survived by her adoring husband and best friend of 47 years, William E. Danielson; her loving sons William E. Danielson Jr. (Carla Kmett) and Bracken Marshall Danielson (Allison Hass); her devoted grandchildren, Kamryn (14), Isabella (12), Liam (10), Halston (3), and Hadley (1); her brothers Rob Weaver (Sharon) and Craig Weaver (Sandy); her sister-in-law Susan Danielson Sams (Bob); her honorary sister in life, Nancy Block Robinson (Wendell); and many nieces and nephews, cousins, and friends. She is preceded in death by her mother, Lilyan Weaver, who undoubtedly was the first one to greet her at the pearly gates, beaming with pride of all her extraordinary daughter accomplished during her time on earth.

The oldest of 3 children, Georgia was born to be a boss. She attended Ohio University where she instantly befriended her roommate, Nancy, who became the Thelma to her Louise. The details of their adventures are murky—but it has been made clear that music and dancing often were involved. Georgia was brave beyond her years as a young woman and traveled the world, sometimes with only a dollar to her name. But she was brilliant and resourceful and looked back on these trips with great fondness. Georgia was humble as well and never bragged—or perhaps recognized—how courageous these adventures were. She was introduced to the love of her life, Bill, by her mother and Bill's father, who knew theirs would be a match made in heaven. And so it was. The pair married on September 16, 1972, and they became life partners in every way possible. Georgia learned the family business quickly. Her financial brilliance, business sense, and visionary capacity culminated in her role as Chief Financial Officer at Danco Metal Products Inc., a role she maintained until she retired. Whether she was engaging in international travel for work or being interviewed by media as a successful woman in business, all were in awe of Georgia's class, no-nonsense approach, and timeless beauty. However, Georgia's most important and beloved role was that of being a mother. We are pretty confident the concept of "Mama Bear" was 100% inspired by her. To know Georgia was to know she loved her sons fiercely and unconditionally. She raised them to have a strong work ethic and be respectful –and even made sure they knew that domestic responsibilities, such as picking up the dry cleaning, did not just fall on the mom. Her unconditional love was extended when her sons were married and she insisted that the phrase "in law" was never to be used: she was Mom. Perhaps the biggest smiles and moments of pride came from Georgia each time a grandchild was born. She cherished her time with them, spoiled them as only a grandmother can, and has ensured her imprint on them will continue throughout the duration of their lives. We will forever cherish our special family trips, especially the last one in Hilton Head—where we all mindfully soaked in every second we could get with her. To capture the extraordinary woman that was Georgia Weaver Danielson is impossible in this brief space—but some additional noteworthy highlights include that she was a stock enthusiast, an avid Sudoku expert, and identified as a proud (and perhaps stubborn) Scot. In fact, she loved taking her sons to witness the beauty of Scotland while they were growing up.

Georgia had a framed picture in her bedroom that read, "To every thing there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven." Indeed, Georgia's season and purpose were to inspire, to challenge, and to love. We are so very proud to have had Georgia as our wife, mother, grandmother, sister, and friend: she made us better and stronger. We look forward to continuing her legacy of embracing life with grace and courage and we encourage her family and friends to do the same (cue the bagpipes).

True to how she lived her life, Georgia requested (rather, insisted) that her services be modest and private.
