Georgia Ann Clem, 94, of Brewster, Wash., passed away in her home on Oct. 13, 2017. She was born in Reedley, Calif., to Arthur and Elva Beckner and lived in southern California until 1988 when she moved to Brewster, Wash., to be close to her children.
Georgia was married to Grover H. Clem for 48 years until his death in 1989. She is survived by her two children, Robert Clem of Monitor, Wash., and Judy Johnston of Brewster, Wash., plus their spouses Phyllis Clem and Gregory Johnston; grandchildren, Michael Clem and Melissa Clem; and three great-grandchildren, Justus Clem, Jeremiah Clem and Zachary Dann.
Georgia held a variety of jobs during her life but cherished most her time as a volunteer. She will be remembered for her many years as a volunteer at the Brewster Public Library during the time her daughter was Librarian. She was a great patron of the arts, attending concerts, music festivals (she loved classic jazz), theatrical events and fundraisers and supporting her daughter in these pursuits.
Arrangements are being handled by Precht-Harrison-Nearents Funeral Home. No memorial is planned. Donations in her name may be made to Okanogan Valley Orchestra and Chorus.
