On October 3rd, 2020, Heaven gained an angel, Georgia Gates Ewell, at the age of 78. She was greeted there by her parents, Thomas and Thelma Gates, as well as 9 siblings: Ernest Ray, Virgil, Bernell, Bobby, Frank, and TJ, Mary, Dona, and Jane. She also was met with her son-in-law, Martin Peterson, and great-grandson, Ryland William Burnett.
Georgia was born in Park City, Utah, to Thomas and Thelma Gates on February 21, 1942.
She left behind the love of her life, Larry Ewell. They enjoyed 41 years of marriage, which included their favorite past times of traveling, camping, fishing, and working in the yard together.
Georgia was an excellent mother and homemaker. She enjoyed many hobbies such as embroidery, knitting, quilting, reading, camping, and playing cards with her family and friends. She especially loved listening to Larry sing and play the guitar. Her family was the light of her life, and were always greeted with endless hugs and kisses. She sure loved the little ones and was always holding, kissing, and snuggling them. Friendship was important to Georgia. She had a great sense of humor and a contagious laugh. Many consider her among their closest friends.
Georgia is loved by many and will be missed greatly. She is survived by her beloved husband Larry Ewell, her children: Rada (Bill) Burnett, Jacqueline (Martin) Peterson, Mont (Kirsty) Peterson, Russell (Heidi) Peterson, Shane (Robin) Peterson, Guy Looney, Launa Chouquer, as well as 18 grandchildren and 29 great-grandchildren.
Graveside services will be held on Saturday, October 10th at 11am at the Santaquin City Cemetery, 100 East 300 South. Due to services being outdoors, we invite those who would like to bring a chair for the services. Following the services, the family invites everyone to join us at 1:00pm for a celebration of life (luncheon) held at the Elks Lodge, 285 West Main Eureka, Utah.
Special thanks to our earthly angels at Maple Creek Home Health and Hospice for their tender and compassionate care.
