Georgia Clark Kuklish, age 93.
Georgia Lela Brock Clark Kuklish was born May 23,1927 in a sod house near Ovitt, Loup County, Nebraska to George H. and Lela M (Hennings) Brock.
She died Monday, May 25, 2020, at Community Memorial Health Center in Burwell, NE at the age of 93 years and 2 days.
Georgia and her family lived in the sod house until January 1935. Then following her dad’s election to sheriff, they moved to Taylor, Nebraska, where Georgia attended Loup County School.
Georgia married Gale Clark on November 29, 1944 in Burwell, NE. During their early years she kept herself busy working at the Dime Store and later at the Ordinance Plant building bombs. Georgia began to wonder if she would ever have children and often commented that the Lord had to grow her up first. After thirteen years of marriage her prayers were finally answered and to this union four children were born, Donna, Danny, Janie, and Dale all within less than four years. They traveled Kansas, Oklahoma, and Arkansas living in an eight by thirty-five-foot trailer house while Gale worked construction. In 1964 they returned to Sargent where they made their home and raised their family. When her family was raised, she went to work at the Sargent Nursing Home in 1978 where Georgia was a CNA. Gale passed away March 6,1982. Georgia continued taking care of the residence until she was sixty-five at which time she transferred to supply and learned to run a computer. She worked there until she was seventy-five.
Georgia married Lumire Kuklish on February 4, 1984 in Sargent, NE. They made many trips to the west coast seeing sights and visiting family. They loved dancing, enjoyed growing flowers and had a garden to be envied. Lumire passed away September 30, 2008.
Georgia is survived by her children Donna (Deno) Phillips of Greenbrier, AR; Danny (Sharla) Clark of Sargent, NE; Janie (Tim) Divine of Sargent, NE; and Dale Clark of Loup City, NE; thirteen grandchildren and twenty-nine great grandchildren; and sisters-in-law Margie Clark, and Dorothy Setlik; many nieces and nephews and a host of friends.
