Georgia was born April 27, 1931 in Seattle to Robert N. Fraser and Cecelia (Kinney) Fraser. They divorced when she was 2. When she was 4, Robert married Nina (Peg) Smith and Georgia lived mostly with them in the Puget Sound area. She met Rudy Oja from Keewatin, they married in 1949 and soon moved to Keewatin where they spent most of their married life.
Georgia was happiest and most at peace near water and enjoyed time spent at Swan Lake. She enjoyed going just about anywhere-if a car was going out of the garage, she waned to be in it. She enjoyed shopping, especially thrift stores, and was known for her sense of style, color and her jewelry. She also enjoyed music, crossword puzzles, eating out, entertaining, being with friends and life in general. Most of all, she loved her family.
Georgia was preceded in death by her parents and stepmother; brothers, Arthur Craig and Robin Fraser; husband, Rudy Oja; and son, Arthur Oja.
Survivors include her daughter, Irene (Jerry) Gaige; grandchildren, Mike and Chris Gaige, Krystina
(Robert) Delzoppo, and Vinnie Oja; and several great and double great grandchildren.
