Georgia E. Krieg was born February 9, 1920, in Russell, MN. She was the daughter of Louis and Anna (Christensen) Johnson. She grew up in Russell, MN. Being the oldest child, Georgia took the place of “a boy” and helped her dad on the farm. She attended school at Morris Ag School where she met Richard Krieg. They were united in marriage on October 1, 1943.
Georgia and Richard lived on the farm where Richard was born and raised. They were blessed with three children: Barbara, LeRoy, and Lyle. Georgia spent her life on the farm helping with the farm work and raising their children. She also worked at the Hatchery for many years. She helped a bit in the flower shop in Graceville as well. Georgia spent many years taking care of Richard on the farm until he passed away on December 30, 1993. Georgia moved into town in 1997.
Helping in the community was always very important to Georgia. She was involved in Ladies Aide at Trinity Lutheran Church of Johnson, was a 4-H leader for over 20 years while her children were younger and she was involved in many clubs including the Birthday and Homemakers’ Clubs.
