For sixteen years, Sister Georgie Blaeser served as the Education Director for Sprout Creek Farm, a working farm and educational ministry. She was a talented photographer and found the farm to be an inspiring subject.
Georgie served as teacher and school administrator (dean of students) for many years at the following Sacred Heart schools, Woodlands Academy, Lake Forest, Illinois. Duchesne Academy, Omaha, Nebraska, Glen Oak School, Cleveland, Ohio, and Carrollton School of the Sacred Heart, Miami Florida (campus minister and director of the social justice program).
Georgie was into nurturing the land, the child, the animal, her eye, her love of literature and writing with the wonders of creation. She produced the Farm’s yearly calendar introducing folks to so many of the creatures who made up the Kingdom.
Georgie is best described by her Sisters in the Sacred Heart family and friends by how she made them feel and her sense of humanity. She listened. She cared, and she loved. Georgie mentored many students and young adults over the years, including many of her religious colleagues, all of whom were drawn to her strength, sense of humor and humility. In her humble self-effacing manner, Georgie recognized how precious and fragile life is and how this day is all that is given to us. She was truly present to this life, its joys and its sorrows.
This fund will help continue the educational mission of Sprout Creek Farm.Georgie Blaeser, RSCJ Obituary
