Georgia K. (Wakefield) Kauffman

September 20, 1947 ~ March 14, 2022 (age 74)


   Georgia K. Kauffman, 74, of Carlisle Gap Road, Lewistown, went to be with the Lord on Monday, March 14, 2022 at Geisinger-Lewistown Hospital.
   Born Sept. 20, 1947 in Lewistown, she was a daughter of the late George and Isabel (Irvin) Wakefield.  Also preceding her in death was a stepmother, Darlene (Druckenmiller) Wakefield, and a daughter-in-law, Helen (Byler) Kauffman.
   Her husband, William P. Kauffman, whom she married Oct. 8, 1966, survives.
   Also surviving are:  a son, Roger A. Kauffman, of Allensville; a brother, Gregory Wakefield and wife Melissa of Lewistown; two stepsisters, Patty Forsythe of Lewistown, Janet Benjamin and husband Jim of Montana; a stepbrother, Leonard Earnest and wife Sue; and two grandchildren, Renee and Matthew Kauffman.
   Primarily a homemaker, she also had worked as an in-home personal aide.
   Georgia was a member of the Pine Glen Church of the Brethren.
   She was very dedicated in caring for her loving husband of 55 years, and enjoyed Saturday morning yard sales with Anita and Darlene.  Most of all she loved being with her family and friends.
   Georgia put her faith in her Savior, Jesus Christ, and her hope was to see as many people as possible come to Christ.  A favorite scripture of hers was John 3;16-17:
   "For God so loved the world, that he gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in him should not perish, but have everlasting life.
   For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world, but that the world through him might be saved."
   A funeral service will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Thursday, March 17, 2022 at the Pine Glen Church of the Brethren with Pastor Randy Fiske officiating.  Interment will be in Mattawana Cemetery, McVeytown.
   Viewings will be held from 6 to 8 p.m. today, Wednesday, March 16, 2022, at Harshbarger Funeral Home, 3 South Market St., McVeytown; and from 10 a.m. until the time of service Thursday at the church.
   Memorial contributions may be made to the Pine Glen Church of the Brethren, 61 Pine Glen Rd., Lewistown, PA  17044.
