Obituary

George Frederick Osterfeld passed away peacefully on Saturday, September 26, 2020. Beloved husband, father, and grandfather, George will be missed by his wife of almost 64 years, Carol, their six children: Karen Korchmar (Michael), Mike (the late Nancy), Jeff (Sheri), Gary (Michele), Kevin (Debra) and Mary Ann Tillman (Dave), his 17 grandchildren: Erin, Amy, Michael, Will, Joseph, Anne, Rachel, Jake, Andrea, Corie, Andrew, Ben, Paige, Claire, Sloane, Jamie, and Neil, and 8 (and counting) great-grandchildren. George was born in Cincinnati in 1935 and attended Guardian Angels grade school and Purcell High School. Carol Berning and George were married in 1956 at St. Monicas Catholic Church in Clifton. They both lived their entire lives in Cincinnati where they also raised their family. An entrepreneur, George started and operated successful businesses as a custom home builder, computer flooring contractor, and then built and ran the Eastern Hills Indoor Tennis Club, the first indoor racquet club in Cincinnati. He loved cooking (and eating), boats, the Bengals, charming any stranger thrown in his path, and his Goldie Bear. His favorite ritual was daily happy hour with Carol where they tirelessly unraveled the days events. Mass of Christian Burial at St. Rose Church, 2501 Riverside Dr., on Wednesday, September 30, at 2:30 PM. Visitation will be from 1:30 to 2:30 PM at the Church.

When our daughters were young, one of them said she was afraid of Uncle George. I asked why and she said he was so big, he was scary. I asked another daughter if she was also scared of him and she said she wasn’t at all because he reminded her of a big bear, not scary at all, kind of like “Smokey the Bear”. Carol and George had the perfect union; Mr. Smokey Bear and Mrs. Goldie Bear.

Our fondest recollection of George is his role as the perfect bartender, serving us a drink (or two), with Carol preparing what seemed like an effortless dinner. Of course, we who cook know it’s not so effortless; Carol and George just make it look that way. George introduced me to a couple of wines I decided to buy later on, after returning to St. Louis, till I realized they weren’t anywhere near the bargain bin or in a box.

With the number of amazing descendants George and Carol have, what better legacy could he possibly leave? He left a very large hole to fill, in a lot of lives. There’s an angel by the name of Carol on his shoulder.


Love and prayers,

Joe and Corinne Kennedy
