Georgiana (Georgie) L. Rotunda, age 66, a resident of Kenosha, died Monday December 23, 2013 at Aurora Medical Center.
Georgie was born July 25, 1947 in Kenosha to Francis J. and Minnie “Mae” (Moldenauer) Ziehr. She attended Friedens Lutheran School and graduated from Bradford High School.
On May 10, 1969 she was united in marriage with Thomas Rotunda in Kenosha. Outside of raising her family, she worked as a housekeeper for many years for Total Cleaning.
Georgie was a very joyful person. She loved to go out dancing with her friends and to hear her husband play in bands. She loved to go to concerts and went with Thomas to see Jimi Hendrix and Janis Joplin when they first met. She enjoyed “Scoopin’ the Loop” with her sister Donna and going to car shows with her family. Georgie had a passion for wrestling on TV and everyone knew not to disturb her while she was watching.
Christmas was Georgie’s favorite time of year and her family remembers how much she loved it. She was very fond of her Westies; Peaches and Precious and her “grand-dogs” Lucy, Sam, Lila, Woofie, Kain and Choochoo; and her grand cats Ibanez and Mikey.
Georgiana is survived by her husband Thomas, her son Jason and her daughter Kelly as well as her brother Rodney (Susan) Ziehr and her sister Donna (Glen) Wilson.
She was preceded in death by her parents and by her brother William “Bill” Ziehr.
