Georgetta was born in Macklin, Saskatchewan on March 8, 1953 to George and Martha Sieben. She was the sixth of ten children.
Growing up on a farm was a fun time with so many siblings. After the chores were done, and there was definitely a lot of chores, she spent many hours playing games such as shadow tag, prisoners base and red rover with her family. Bedtime found her chatting with her sisters long into the night because there were four that shared a bedroom.
Georgetta met and married, Stanley Brosinsky in Denzil, Saskatchewan on August 4, 1973. Together they raised four children, Jeannine, Chris, Michael and Melissa on the family farm near St. Donatus.
Georgetta was known for her quilting skills far and wide. Anyone who has received one of her famous quilts knows the love that went into every stitch.
Everyone also knows Georgetta’s grandchildren and great-grandchildren, as well as many other children whom she treated as her grandkids, were her absolute world. From baking and sewing to board games and sports to crafts and cuddles, Grandma was always ready to play. Whether it was soccer in the basement, to sewing bags and pj’s, or baking an assortment of treats, the kids all loved spending time with her and learning from Grandma.
Georgetta was an amazing baker. We all loved when she would treat us with her baking. Stopping in at the farm, you would always be guaranteed a tray of baking was ready to be shared.
Georgetta is survived by her loving husband, Stanley; children, Chris (Jenn), Michael and Melissa (Elder); grandchildren, Kenzie (Kevin), Talen and Matteo; great-grandchildren, Maddison, Haley and Trent Tirk; as well as her siblings, nieces and nephews, and many extended relatives and friends.
Georgetta was predeceased by her daughter, Jeannine; parents, George and Martha; and sisters, Delores and Colette.
A Private Family Funeral Mass will be held on Tuesday, August 18, 2020 at the St. Mary's Roman Catholic Church with Father Binu Rathappillil officiating.
