Our beloved mother, Georgette Crooker, 93 of Modesto passed away on November 15, 2019 surrounded by family and loved ones. She was born on June 25, 1926 to loving parents Yousef and Almas Sliva in Kermanshah, Iran. During Georgette's active years her passion was traveling the world and learning the history and cultures of the many countries she visited. She travelled throughout Europe, China, Egypt, Israel and the Middle East. With her military husband, Elwyn, and son, Wallace, she lived in several countries in Europe, and several states in the U.S. When her husband finally retired from the military after 30 plus years of service they made their home in Modesto. Her joy was her grandchildren and great grandchildren, babysitting and actively supporting them in their sporting events and school activities. She was a Super Grandma!
