Georgia Ione Doerr, beloved Mom and Grandma, passed away on May 29, 2022, in Provo, UT of a sudden short illness.   Georgia was born on April 28,1934 in Lodge Grass, Montana to Sidney Sprague and Alvina Bomar.  She was raised in Montana with her older brother Bob and younger sister Norma.  When Georgia was young, her parents divorced, and she spent time with both her mom and dad.  She loved her parents dearly.  She would do anything she could for them all their lives. She loved her siblings Bob and Norma.  They always had a close bond and could sense when one needed the other. 

In 1951 she married Ralph Richard Herring Sr and they had one son, Ralph Richard Jr (Dick). Ralph passed away when Dick was very young.  Georgia and Dick moved to Lovell WY to be near her father, and she met Edwin L Doerr.  Georgia and Ed were married on February 26, 1959.  They lived on E 5th Street in Lovell their entire married life.  In 1970, Ed and Georgia adopted a baby they named David Edwin. She was so thrilled to have another baby.  Georgia was the best mother to her boys.  She loved them unconditionally and gave them everything. She loved being a mother.  A few years after David was born, Dick and his wife Patty, introduced 2 beautiful baby granddaughters into the family.  Sonya was born in 1974 and Heidi in 1975.  Georgia loved being a grandmother.  She mothered and grandmothered many grands, great-grands, and great-great grands.  She loved all her kids.

Georgia was a hard worker her entire life.  She worked at multiple places multiple times including Lovell Drug, Bill Powell’s, Haskell’s Furniture, the pallet shop, Anthony’s in Powell, the nursing home, and probably a few others along the way.  Georgia loved interior design.  She loved a clean house.  Georgia always looked her best and had an eye for fashion and loved shopping. Her hair and make-up was always perfect, even when she was telling us that she “looked like a mess”.

On June 6, 1960, Georgia was baptized as a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.  She made many friends through church and loved her Relief Society teachers.  She would welcome anyone into her home.  She always had a testimony of the gospel and tried to follow Jesus. 

In 2017, Georgia moved from her home in Lovell to Spanish Fork UT to live with her son David and his family.  David, Nicky, Sarah, and Ethan loved having Grandma in their home.  She was an incredibly independent, healthy, happy, and charming 88-year-old.

Georgia is survived by her son and daughter-in-law, David and Nicky Doerr and their children Sarah Doerr and Ethan Doerr. Her granddaughters and their families: Sonya and Pat Wambeke (Cowley, WY) and their children: Ty and Clarissa Wambeke, Cole Wambeke, Jess Wambeke, Shelby Wambeke.  Heidi and Bret Bassett (Powell, WY) and their children: Erik and Lindsey Brimhall and Xavier, KaDee and Nate Nix and Brayden and Brekyn, Jacob Harrison, Zack Bassett. Her brother Robert and Georgie Sprague (Kalama, WA). Her sister Norma and Tom Clayton (Casper, WY) and many nieces and nephews.
