Obituary

October 19, 2019. George Womersley, 97, died peacefully at home among the people he loved and who loved him. George was born August 16, 1922 in Akron, Ohio to James E. Womersley and Ruth (Brown) Womersley. He helped support his family during the Depression by delivering newspapers and handbills and his strong work ethic stayed with him all of his life. He attended Akron University (Phi Delta Theta) and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering. George served in the Navy during WWII, as an ensign on a series of destroyer escorts. He enjoyed a challenging and fulfilling career as both a mechanical engineer and a sales engineer, retiring from General Dynamics in 1986. George and his wife, Kathryn (Kit), moved to Bennington, Vermont just before he retired and enjoyed spending their retirement years in the beautiful Green Mountain State.

George was a talented, passionate man, husband and father. Besides his engineering career, he was a talented sculptor, studying with Duncan Ferguson in Cleveland, Ohio. He was commissioned to create a life-sized bust of the Reverend Frederick Hicks by the Church of the Redeemer in Lorain, Ohio. The bust was cast in bronze and displayed in the church. His artistic endeavors continued during the many years the family lived in the Cleveland area, and were continued during the early years of his retirement in Vermont.

The Episcopal Church played a very important part in George’s life, beginning as a boy and as a member of the Boys Choir of St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church in Akron, Ohio (the happy memories of which were with him throughout his life). He was also closely involved for many years with Trinity Cathedral, in Cleveland.

George had a deep appreciation of and passion for all forms of art, including classical music, and made sure that his ‘girls’ got to share in the experience. He was smart, funny, witty, and a joy to his family and friends. He and his wife, Kit, had friendships that lasted through decades.

Besides his wife of 70 years, Kathryn (Smith) Womersley, George leaves behind his daughters, Susan, Constance (Barry) and Cynthia; grandchildren Sean (Logan), Vera (Logan) and Austin (Julian), great grandchildren Cyrus (McCaw) and Adrian (Logan), a nephew and niece, and friends from throughout his long and wonderful life. George was predeceased by his sisters Jane and Margaret.

In lieu of flowers, contributions can be made in his memory to the Alzheimer’s Foundation of America through the office of Mahar and Son Funeral Home, 628 Main Street, Bennington, VT 05201.
