Left to cherish Georges memory is his wife of 47 years, Evonne of Sheldon; and their children, Vanessa Odens of Sibley, IA; Danaca and Chris Barton of Newton, IA; Kendra and Brent Kamstra of Sheldon, IA and Bodie Osborn-Schneider of Minot, ND; grandchildren, Bretton, Gracie, Landon; Harper, Temple, Frances; Kayley, Parker and Georgia; a brother, Warren and his wife JoAnn Hulst of Chula Vista, CA, other relatives and friends.
George was preceded in death by his parents.
God saw he was getting tired,
And a cure was not to be.
So He put His arms around him,
And whispered, Come with Me.
With tearful eyes, we watched him suffer,
And slowly fade away.
Although we loved him dearly,
We could not make him stay.
A golden heart stopped beating,
Working hands were put to rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us,
He only takes the best.
For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son,
that whosoever believeth in him should not perish,
but have everlasting life.
