Deepest Sympathy
Our deepest condolences to Andy Zeedick, former District 15 President, and past GCU Vice President and Board Member, on the death of his wife Georgia (nee Stecik) Zeedick who passed on Thursday, April 29. In addition to Andy, Georgia is survived by a daughter Danielle; a son John; a daughter-in-law Karen and granddaughter Linnea. An extremely intelligent and engaging woman, Georgia was mentor and role model for many young women. A professional writer, she worked for many Pittsburgh companies during her career, including an assignment in Ostrava, Czech Republic for ICF Kaiser. Georgia and Andy were founding members of Seven Oaks Country Club and Chairs of the Russian Nationality Room at the University of Pittsburgh. Faith was central to Georgia's life, and she served as a Basilian Lay Associate with the Sisters of Saint Basil, Uniontown, PA. Georgia's funeral service was celebrated by Reverend Father Valerian Michlik at St. Gregory Byzantine Catholic Church in Upper St. Clair, Pittsburgh, PA. May God grant Georgia blessed repose and eternal memory.
