Georgia Lee Hone Erickson

May 13, 2024

1938 – 2024

Georgia Lee Hone Erickson passed away on May 11, 2024, just two days shy of her 86th birthday. Born in Ogden, UT on May 13, 1938, a daughter of Ted and Lenna Hone, she was a resilient spirit, who lived her life with passion and purpose. Georgia was a compassionate soul, her heart ever filled with love for those around her. Her life was defined by her wit, her love, and her ceaseless dedication to her family, friends, and the community in which she lived. She attended Ogden High and University of Utah.

Georgia was a passionate traveler, her adventurous spirit leading her to explore both California and Salt Lake City before settling down in Ogden, Utah. In her professional life, she enjoyed a fulfilling career as a travel agent, sharing her love of exploration and adventure with her clients. Her hobbies, which included golf, gardening, bridge, and needlepoint, reflected her multifaceted personality and her desire to connect with others in meaningful ways. One of her favorite quotes that she lived by was, “Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.”

Her commitment to service was evident in her numerous accolades and positions of leadership. She served as the past president of the Ogden Symphony Ballet Guild and officer of the Junior League of Ogden. She was an advocate for the University of Utah Legislative Committee. She was also part of Weber County Human Services and was a proud member of the Ladies’ Association of the Ogden Golf and Country Club. However, her most cherished role was being a loving wife to her husband Ronald Erickson, whom she married on June 17, 1958, and a loving mother to her daughters and son, Kelly (Robert) Jones, Tracy (Brad) Kapple, Bradley (Andrea) Erickson, 10 grandchildren, and 23 greatgrandchildren.

Georgia was preceded in death by her parents, Ted and Lenna Hone, and three sisters: Katheryn Baird, Opal Danley, and Margene Hone. Her radiant spirit will continue to live on through her cherished family, and the numerous lives she touched with her generosity, compassion, and love.

Her graveside service will be held on Wednesday, 15 May 2024 at 11:00am at Washington Heights Memorial Park, 4500 South Washington Boulevard, Ogden, Utah, 84403.
