TOPSHAM — Miss Georgia C. Sheaff, born on Oct. 9, 1926, passed away on July 8, 2014, after a long illness. She was the daughter of the late Wilhelmina C. Sheaff and Edmund H. Sheaff. Georgia is predeceased by her brother Edmund H. Sheaff Jr. She is survived by her brothers John H. Sheaff and his wife Lois and David F. Sheaff and his wife Trisha; loving nieces and nephews are Mark Sheaff, Christina Amgwerd- Sheaff, Cheryl Shiveler, Carolyn Sheaff, John Sheaff and Kate Sheaff.

Upon graduating from Baldwin high School, Baldwin, N.Y., in 1945, Georgia immediately began a 30-year career as a teller in various branches of Citibank in New York City. She was highly commended for her work there. Georgia retired from Citibank in 1982 and spent her remaining years in Harpswell and Topsham.

Georgia traveled extensively, and fondly remembered her time at Ayers Rock in Australia. Her knitting and crocheting skills are well known and many have benefitted from receiving products of her efforts. Georgia knit and donated mittens and hats to people in need throughout Maine, and as far away as Guatemala. Georgia spent many hours volunteering at Parkview Hospital. In recent years, she assisted at the Topsham Library Saturday morning knitting group.

She attended the West Harpswell Baptist Church and will be buried at Hillcrest Cemetery, Harpswell.

Based on the accomplishments of her career and avocations and her thoughtful concern for others, one can truly say in the broadest sense, “She Counted.”
