Tribute & Message From The Family


Georgia M. (Lang) Ravinski, age 90, passed away at the Lighhouse at Lincoln Assisted Living on Sunday, January 7, 2018. Born in her family's home in Norfolk, Massachusetts on March 8, 1927, she was the daughter of the late Philip L. and Ameila (Pescuma) Lang. She was raised in Norfolk, attending grammar school in the one room schoolhouse in City Mills. She went on to graduate from Walpole High School with the Class of 1944. While in high school, Georgia took a part time position with Kendall Mills in Walpole, delivering mail. Once she graduated she began working at Kendall's full time, becoming a secretary.

After welcoming her children, Georgia transitioned to the role of a homemaker, raising and caring for her young family, but also maintained a part time position as a clerk with the Norfolk Pharmacy. As her children grew up, Georgia returned to The Kendall Company, working as an executive secretary, traveling to Boston daily for work. She retired in the mid-1980s, however she continued working part time at the Walpole Eye Associates.

Georgia had many contributions to her beloved Town of Norfolk. She was a founding member of Saint Jude Church, where she taught Sunday School and regularly volunteered her time. As a lifelong resident of Norfolk, she dedicated herself to the citizens of her community and volunteering with the Southwood Hospital Auxiliary.

In her retirement, Georgia enjoyed a full social calendar. She was a member of a bowling league at Ficco's Bowling Lanes in Franklin, had long standing plans on Friday afternoons with friends at the Allen's house, and loved hosting get togethers and cooking for her friends in her own home. However most of all, Georgia's life was centered around her family. She and her husband, Bob, loved traveling around the country together in their motorhome, including three trips to Alaska and spending time at their timeshare in Aruba. She enjoyed special occasions with her children at their homes in Vermont and prepared many parties in her home for the Lang and Ravinski families. Georgia adored being surrounded by those she loved and hosted many pool parties, clam and lobster bakes, and Christmas parties, where she showcased her famous Christmas cookies. After welcoming her grandchildren, Georgia always attended their athletic competitions and recitals.

Georgia's family would like to extend their deep appreciation for the tremendous love and care given to her by the amazingly compassionate staff at Lighthouse at Lincoln Memory Care community where she made her home for the past four years.

My beloved Auntie Georgia was so good to me as a teenager and growing up. She was one of the sweetest ladies that I have ever known. I loved her very much. She will forever be in my heart.

Georgia was our 'Work Mother' back at the Kendall company in the 80's. She was well-loved during those years, and took care of us all in the Data Processing department. Our friendship was rekindled in the 90's when I moved to Norfolk and we would attend Mass at St Jude's together. Even when her memory started to fade her loving and caring personality continued to shine through. She will be dearly missed.

Aunt Georgia was a very special person. She possessed compassion, dignity, and grace. She always made me feel like she loved me. I am thankful that my mother was close to her, we had many days during my youth when my mother would bring us to the house in Norfolk, just hanging around and playing. I loved going there. It was a comfortable place to go. Even my children loved going there for the annual cookout/clam bakes! I am so sad, I am here in California and cannot attend services. I will always have my memories. Losing a loved one is very difficult there are never good enough words to speak. So I end here with love in my heart and soul, waiting to be reunited with all the souls we have said goodbye to. Love you so much Aunt Georgia, you were the best aunt!!!
