Georgi Ann Whitmore Aibner (November 10, 2016)

Georgi Ann Whitmore Aibner passed away on November 10, 2016, following a year-long battle with cancer. She will be remembered as an energetic, generous soul with love for the outdoors and a good margarita.

As a veteran elementary school teacher, Georgi was a champion and advocate for all her students, but especially those in need. Georgi was a life-long learner who urged all those around her to continue their intellectual journeys every day through reading, travel, and outdoor adventure.
