Passed away at her home on 22nd October, surrounded by loving friends and beloved pets.
Georgie was dearly loved and deeply respected by many, and will be missed by family, friends and comrades forever.
Here I am, May 1, 2019. I’ve only just been made aware of Georgie Kimmel’s passing. I shared a house with Georgie and others back in our uni days at Geelong. Sad, and I’ve been reading the tributes. A union obit described her as “feisty and passionate.” That sounds exactly like the Georgie I lived with back in the mid 1980’s.
And I was then, and remain a Conservative. However in spite of our differences we had a mutual respect. Vale old warrior.
Rest in Peace Georgie.
Fought the good fight.
Georgie – a life cut too short! No one ever doubted where you stood or what you stood for. Your passion was clear to all of us, comrades and foes. You will be missed.
Georgie, steadfast and tenacious, passionate and caring. Unmovable in your never ending quest for the betterment of workers health and safety quality of life. I have been privileged to have worked closely with you and am richer and wiser for the experience. You were a thoroughly beautiful person (as you affinity with animals amongst many other things) is testament.
The world has just lost a very special soul…..
Georgie an amazing teacher loved to challenge employer and got the greatest pleasure by putting them back in their box.
I thank you for your knowledge, and advice both as a delegate and an offical of the union, you are one of a kind RIP

Georgie, a strong, fiercely loyal and caring woman. I will always remember our social times in the early ’90’s – much laughter and good times were had by all.
I will always remember you as a strong, capable and fierce woman with a great laugh! I am so glad that you were fighting the good fight for so many women and men. You should be proud. So many of us have been so proud and happy to know you. With love, Natalie
Georgie, energetic, dynamic and fearless. Georgie always took on challenges because they allowed her to grow and push others beyond their boundaries. Never shy to put her position forward. Empathetic and generous in her time to help and assist people who needed help. Goodbye fearless sister. Sad you leave us so soon. We will always remember the struggles and the times we shared.
To my sister,
Thankyou forever for being the perfect sister and Aunty to Daniel, you remain forever in our hearts and thoughts.
Fly high sis
Love you, from Maryanne and your best nephew ever Daniel xoxoxoxoxoxo
Georgie I will remember your kindness, energy, passion and smile. You were a wonderful advocate and you touched the lives of many and you made a difference.
Georgie you were a vibrant & energetic character who was committed to supporting working people. Remember your laugh with your earrings jingling down along her face. She made her mark on the world but had a lot more to give. Farewell Gayle Burmeister
A great unionist and great achiever . She was second to none and I greatly respected her loyalty and passion and standing up for what she believed and the beliefs of the union movement . Will be missed !! RIP
Hey G it’s me – For the rest of my days I will be wishing you will actually give me a call back.
Thank you for choosing me to accompany you on this
particularly difficult campaign, which sadly we couldn’t win.
Always by your side, Chris xo💕
