OBITUARY AND MEMORIAL OF THE LATE Georgia "Gee" Leigh Ogden
Georgia was taken tragically on the 25th June 2020 aged just 17, she was surrounded at the hospital by her loving family.

Georgia was sassy, funny and a real entertainer, she loved to be the centre of attention and randomly burst into song, dance or an accent. She had an absolute heart of gold and her relatives, friends and dance family meant the world to her. She would instantly light up a room with her bubbly personality and her infectious smile. Everyone effected by Georgia's death is truly heart-broken and she will be greatly missed by all that were blessed to know her.
