Georgia Gideon

Obituary of Georgia Lucille (Parker) Gideon

Georgia Lucille (Parker) Gideon, daughter of Samuel Neely Parker and Olive Esther (Roberts) Parker, was born January 11, 1922 near Montreal, Missouri, in Camden county. She departed this life Sunday, January 23, 2022 at her home near Stoutland, Missouri at the age of 100 years.

 

Georgia was raised by Christian parents and made a profession of faith at a young age.  She was a member of Grace Baptist Church, Richland, Missouri. Through the years she taught Bible School and Sunday School.  Few nights did her children go to sleep without a Bible story being read.

 

On January 12, 1946 she was united in marriage to Clyde J. Gideon.  To this union four children were born.  Georgia lived on the family farm 75 years working beside her husband on their farm and custom bulldozing business.

 

Georgia went through life with a smile on her face and a song in her heart.  She was always telling stories to her children and grandchildren.  She enjoyed a good joke or prank. Georgia enjoyed cooking for her family and afternoon swims at Sellers Creek on a hot day.

 

Georgia is survived by three children Marilyn Kulmus and husband Dr. John Shoenhair of Gladstone, Missouri, Terry Gideon and wife Virginia outside of Strafford, Missouri, Jerry Gideon and wife Carol of Stoutland, Missouri, and son-in-law Johnny McDaniel of Stoutland, Missouri; one sister Ruth Smith of Waynesville, Missouri; 10 grandchildren; 12 great-grandchildren; 1 great-great-grandchild; and many nieces and nephews.

 

She was preceded in death by her parents; husband Clyde J. Gideon; sisters Grace Butcher, Barbara Oursbourn, and Margaret Rabenau; brother Charles Parker; and daughter Marsha McDaniel.

 

Her joy for life will be missed by all who knew Georgia and had the pleasure of knowing and loving her.

 

Service for Georgia will be held in the Spring at Hillhouse Cemetery.
