Brothers and Sisters in Christ,
It is with deep sadness that we inform you that our sister, Georgiana “Georgie” Summers, spouse of Rev. Gerald Summers, died on March 31, 2022.

She held a Bachelor’s and Master’s degree in English and Drama, and authored Sunday School curriculum published by the United Methodist Publishing House. She wrote and directed many religious dramas and children’s Christmas pageants. She was also passionate about social justice issues, most recently, the cause of health care reform and the single payer initiative. She received a Bishop’s Award at the 2007 Annual Conference session.
Georgie was a faithful companion to her husband as he began his ministry in the former Southern California-Arizona conference, and then upon his transfer to the California-Nevada conference where he served the Quincy, Paradise, Montague, Yreka, and Marysville churches before retiring in 1993.
