Georgiana Brown, nee Poland, 73, of Trenton passed away on Thursday, December 11, 2008 following a long illness. 

Funeral Services will be Monday, December 15, 2008 at 10:00 AM at the First United Methodist Church in Trenton with Rev. Debbie Melzer officiating.  Interment will follow in Trenton Cemetery.  Visitation will be Sunday, December 14, 2008 from 4:00-8:00 PM and again on Monday, December 15, 2008 from 9:00-9:45 AM at the Moss Funeral Home in Trenton.   

Georgiana was born October 21, 1935 in Prestonville, KY, a daughter of Frank and Ruth (Chapman) Poland, who passed away when Georgiana was an infant.  She then was raised by her father and aunt, Mary Chapman.  She Graduated from Carrollton High School in Kentucky on June 4, 1953. 

She was married to Robert E. Brown of Champaign, IL on October 9, 1965.  Surviving are her husband of 43 years, two sons, Stephen (Lynn) Brown of Trenton, Matthew (Genifer) Brown of Swansea, Stephen and Lynnís children and Georgianaís beloved grandchildren, Katelyn, Nathan, and Jacob Brown, two sisters, Helen Virginia Witte of Cincinnati, OH, Nancy Brown of Emporium, PA, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Barbara (Ron) Schaede of Champaign, Bernice Adair of Urbana, Ronnie (Pat) Brown of Libertyville and Norman (Pat) Brown of Atlanta, GA, and several nieces and nephews. 

She was preceded in death by her parents, two brothers, Francis Marion Poland and John Morris Poland, and two brothers-in-law, Wendell Brown and Charles Witte.  Georgiana leaves many loving relatives and devoted friends and neighbors, who have been wonderful support as her illness progressed these past years, especially Don and Ann Stalcup, Joellen Kimmle, Marge Goble, and Dorothy Weber.  The nurses at Breese Nursing Home and the RAI Dialysis Center have been especially helpful and appreciated during Georgianaís long illness.  To know her was to love her, and this they did. 

Georgiana was a member of The First Baptist Church, Carrollton.  She and her husband lived in Carrollton, KY, Little Rock, AR and Pittsburg, PA, before their final move to Trenton in 1973, when they joined the First United Methodist Church.  She sang in the Choir and taught Sunday School for years. 

She loved and enjoyed her family very much.  Always involved in church and school functions, even when her health was failing, she attended the many activities of her active and talented grandchildren.  She was very proud of her two sons, who followed in their fatherís footsteps, graduating from the University of Illinois in Civil Engineering.  A mother who lives a rich, full life gives her children a precious gift ~ a model for happiness and love for their children. 

Georgiana was a busy homemaker and devoted wife, mother, and grandmother.  In later years, Bob and Georgiana shared a love of flowers and gardening.  When she could no longer do the cooking, they shared the recipes and Bob learned to cook.  She was an avid reader and enjoyed watching television game shows, but she and her friends especially were loyal fans of the Cardinal and Illini Teams. 

The love of a mother is never exhausted, it never changes, it never tires.  A motherís love endures through all, she loved everything. 

Memorials can be made to the Multiple Myeloma Research Foundation or to the United Methodist Women and will be received at the funeral home.
