Georgette was born on April 23, 1944, in St. Paul, Minnesota to George and Beata (Dierkhising) Henry.  She graduated from Jefferson High School in Alexandria and received undergraduate and graduate degrees from the College of St. Catherine (now St. Catherine University) in St. Paul, Minnesota.  She was a social worker at Bethany Nursing Home, and later at Lakeview Chemical Dependency Center in Alexandria.  In addition to being an active member of the Church of Saint Mary, she was an active member of the Daughters of Isabella where she served as Auditor.

She is survived by her daughter Kyla (Greg) Mundwiller of Hermann, Missouri; son Cletus (Linda) Vickstrom of Alexandria, Minnesota; daughter Kelley (Russell) Girtz of Monticello, Minnesota; daughter Kristin Vickstrom (Jason Papenfuss) of Minneapolis, Minnesota; partner in all of life’s adventures Marvin Mickelson of Alexandria, Minnesota; and by her brothers Lyle (Eileen) Henry of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, and Clyde (Janet) Henry of Columbus, Ohio.  The lights of her life were her grandchildren Benjamin, Hannah, Adam, Danielle, Evan and Kimberlyn, and great-grandson Levi.  Georgette is preceded in death by her parents George and Beata, and by her husband, Jon Vickstrom.   

Georgette was vivacious and fun-loving, devoted to her grandchildren, and enjoyed traveling and sharing good times with family and friends. She crocheted wonderful gifts and passed her talents along to the next generations, was a dedicated student of history, tracing her family back to Belgium and Luxembourg in the 16th century, and loved spending summers at Leech Lake and winters in Arizona.
