Gay Maurine George

Gay Maurine George 65, of Laramie died May 28th at Ivinson Memorial Hospital. She was born on March 3, 1955, in Hollywood, California. She was born on March 3, 1955 to Wallace E. and Audrey E. (Swanson) George

Avid traveler and semi-retired attorney Gay George’s love for the beauty of life didn’t end with her death.

Her amusing and carefree spirit lives on through the ocean in Avalon, the golden sands of San Simeon and sweeping mountains of New Zealand. Gay was able to share her life with people all over the world with her work in the Peace-corps. She laughed with the people of Germany, shared stories with the folks of Simao and broke bread with the people of Switzerland.  Although a heavy hitter in the courtroom, Gay had the kindest heart. If you needed something and she had it, it was yours. If she didn’t have it, she found a way to get it.

Gay enjoyed being with her doggies and her friends. She enjoyed lunch dates and dancing with her adopted grandchildren. In her words “They had the moves!”.

Words can not be put together eloquently enough to describe Gay and her life on earth. Those who knew her can attest to that. Her contagious personality brought laughter to all she came across. She was so much more than words. We could all bring a special light into the world if we lived more like Gay.

Private services will be held

    Gay and I were in the same law school class. She and I were part of a cohesive study group. She contributed so much to my legal education and to the enjoyment of my time in Laramie. I still have the chop sticks she brought back and gave me from her travels to Asia during law school. She was a huge pillar of support that helped get me through my first year of law school. She was an amazingly kind, interesting and giving person with great intellectual gifts. She was so attentive to her mother in California while we were in law school. I am deeply saddened by the news of Gay's departure. May Gay rest in eternal peace.

    Gay was a dear friend from childhood, the brother of my best friend Erby, who sadly preceded her when he passed far too early. My condolences to all who share in this loss of an inspirational friend, spirit, teacher and character. Among my regrets is that we'd largely lost touch in recent years. A belated remembrance to Gay. And to Erby.

    I think I speak for all of the Returned Peace Corps Samoa community when I say how sorry I am to hear of Gay's passing. I always enjoyed hearing of her travels and she was a great colleague and friend for the short time that we shared as PC volunteers in Samoa. Manuia le malaga suga! Greg Paulson Samoa G-24

    I served with Gay in Peace Corps Group 27 Western Samoa, 1978-1980. Each of us were given Samoan names as part of our training but very early on she changed hers from whatever was suggested to "Filemu," which translates to Peace, an attribute she valued and for the way she wanted us to think of her. And she always lived up to that name: She was a wonderful friend, always generous and cheerful, always welcoming to everyone she met. Tofa Soifua la'u uo. Fa'afetai i le Atua mo lau alofa.
