After battling a long illness on Tuesday, May 8, 2018, Georgeann Fanfer, age 64, passed into God’s care in Select Specialty Hospital at St. Elizabeth Youngstown Hospital.
She was born in Youngstown on January 13, 1954 to Albert and Leona (Paranzino) Pagley formerly of Hubbard, Ohio.
Georgie loved spending time with her beloved family; especially her grandchildren. She loved gardening, the outdoors, all animals and her prayer groups; especially Pray for America. She had a huge heart and would do anything she could for anyone. She touched many people with her upbeat attitude, infectious laugh and a smile that lit up a room.
She married the love of her life in 1985, Robert Fanfer, who preceded her in death.
She leaves behind her children, Beth Ann (Craig) Baker of Virginia and Jonah Koby of North Jackson; two stepsons, Ken (Debbie) Koby of Austintown and Keith (Lisa) Koby of Wisconsin; her beautiful grandchildren, Laila 11, Brody 6, Jonah 5 and Wyatt eight months; stepgrandchildren, Hillary 26, Maggie 25, Carly 22, Allie 20, Kenny 6 and Olivia 3; brothers, Earl Petrosky, Tom Petrosky and John (Tami) Petrosky; her best friend, Lee Etta Hooper of North Jackson and a multitude of nieces, nephews, cousins and other dear family members and friends.
Besides her parents, Georgeann was also preceded in death by brothers, Larry Pagley formerly of Youngstown, Nick Petrosky formerly of Tampa, Florida and Paul Petrosky formerly of Austintown.
We would also like to send a huge thank you to the staff at St. Elizabeth Hospital in Youngstown; especially the nurses, therapists and doctors at Select Specialty Hospital.
As per Georgie’s wishes there will be no calling hours or services. She did not want us to mourn her death but to celebrate her life and love for all of us. She used to say she will be waiting for us at the cookie table in heaven and what a glorious party it will be!
Any sympathy cards can be mailed to the family in care of Beth Baker, 899 Carolina Road, Suffolk, Virginia 23434.
