Georgia M. Nolden

Georgia M. Nolden, 85, of Detroit Lakes, Minnesota entered eternal life to be with her Heavenly Father on Friday, December 7, 2018. She was born November 8, 1933, in New Prague MN to Frank and Adeline Meger. Her spirit is carried on by her adoring husband, her three children, and eight grandchildren.

Those who knew her were blessed to have learned many valuable lessons from Georgia: say the rosary while taking long walks on a country road, drink sweet wine, go to church and sing even if you don't have any kind of singing ability, wash tinfoil to reuse it, never waste food, and laugh until you pee your pants (she was quite funny). Georgia loved to cook and was exceptionally good at it, she never used a recipe. A dab of that, a pinch of this, and a whole lot of love went into her cooking and baking. Georgia loved to go to church, garden, shop, collect and restore antiques. Georgia was a woman of bright faith throughout her life and contributed much of her time to the Holy Rosary Catholic Church and caring for elderly people in her community. She taught us that strong faith and kindness is always worth spreading in the world and she cherished the gift of life. Georgia lived for her family, loved God above all, was loved by many and will be deeply missed. Her loving character will live on through the family she raised.

Survivors include her loving husband, Richard Nolden of Detroit Lakes, two sons, Casey and wife, Romelle of Austin, TX; Patrick and wife, Carole of Soldotna, AK; and, a daughter, Annie Possis of Austin, TX. Other survivors include eight grandchildren: Katherine Nolden of Dallas, TX, Christopher Nolden of Milwaukee, WI and Angelica Nolden of Soldotna, AK, Nick, Nate, and Michael Possis of Austin, TX; and, Luke and Jordan Nolden of Austin, TX. Georgia was proceeded in death by her parents and her sister, Patricia Price of Bloomington, MN.

Georgia's family would like to extend their appreciation to the caregivers of Emmanuel Nursing Complex for the great deal of care and attention given to Georgia in her time of need.

A memorial will be held at the Emmanuel/Ecumen Chapel on December 18, 2018 at 11:00 AM. Please join us as we celebrate Georgia's life.
