Georgia Jane Rueckert (Albertson), infant daughter of Tiffany Rueckert and Shawn Albertson of Fergus Falls, died Sunday, Sept. 30, 2012, at Sanford Hospital in Fargo.

Our daughter, Georgia Jane, was born Sept. 1, 2012, at her home in Fergus Falls, with health problems which led her home into the arms of Jesus. She went peacefully in her parents arms.


He blessed us with our little baby girl for 30 treasured days of precious moments to keep and cherish. Georgia experienced holding hands with Mom and Dad and her siblings, hugs and kisses from her family, and being told “I love you” an innumerable number of times.

She was loved by all who met her and touched by everyone who didn’t. She will be greatly missed and we will always keep her memories in our hearts forever.

Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some people stay for a while leaving footprints on our hearts and we are forever changed.

Hand to hand

Heart to heart

We share a bond

That will never part.

You have touched us all.

Preceding her in death are her great-grandpa, Leroy Rueckert; her great-grandma, Leila Jacobson; her uncle, Jeremy Rueckert; and her cousin, Paige Elizabeth Albertson-Bishop.

Survivors include her parents, Tiffany Marie Rueckert and Shawn Richard Albertson; a brother, Memphis Rueckert; half-sisters, Dreanna Albertson and Galilee Huber-Albertson; her Grandparents, Joey (Stephine) Rueckert, Lisa (Micheal) Guillemette, Jackie Albertson and Gary (Susan) Albertson; great-grandparents, JoAnn Rueckert and Rev. Arvild Jacobson; and many aunts, uncles and cousins.

Georgia’s family would like to give special thanks to everyone who Georgia’s life has touched – her family and friends, Ringdahl Ambulance, Lake Region Healthcare, the Sanford Children’s Hospital team, and the Olson Funeral Home.

A memorial service is planned at 2 p.m. Saturday, at Bethlehem Lutheran Church in Fergus Falls, with the Rev. Kate Bruns officiating. Burial will be in Spring Brook Cemetery in Swanville.

Olson Funeral Home in Fergus Falls is in charge of the arrangements.
