Following the coroner’s inquest, Georgette’s body was released to Pierce Brothers Mortuary and was sent via railroad to New York. Her father had her buried in Woodlawn Cemetery in Long Island in the family plot. The war would be over in less than a year and the old converted barn at Sunset and Cahuenga would shut down on Thanksgiving day in 1945. Soldiers would return to the States, sign up for the G.I. Bill, grab their lunch boxes and go to work. Young families moved to the suburbs and life went on. Georgette Bauerdorf’s unfinished story would become part of the world left behind, the world of junior hostesses and the young soldiers who came to dance with them at the Hollywood Canteen.
As of 2009, Georgette’s sister, Constance, resides in New York with her husband, A. Carroll Cartwright, a former special agent for the FBI in the 1940′s. Husband and wife have an interest in Southeast Asian art and have made donations to the Museum of Fine Arts in Boston.
