In a statement posted on Twitter, Marty Kemp called her mother “a guiding presence in our family,” saying her mother has now been reunited with both her husband and daughter.
“My mother carefully tended to all those she loved, and she was my father’s greatest supporter throughout his successful career in business and public service for his fellow Georgians,” Marty Kemp said. “Jeane Argo’s grandchildren affectionately called her by the nickname ‘Goose.’ Today, she spread her wings to fly to Heaven.”
In his own tweet, Gov. Kemp said his three daughters take after their grandmother.
“Today, we lost a cherished member of our family, my mother-in-law Jeane Argo,” Kemp said. “A wonderful mother to my wife & grandmother to our daughters, I see much of her beauty & joy in them.”
Sen. Cowsert, a former Senate majority leader and chairman of the Regulated Industries and Utilities committee, released a statement with his wife, Amy, via her sister’s tweet.
“Amy and I have always admired her parents’ love for one another, their family, Georgia football, and Georgia politics,” the statement said. “We are so happy that Jeane and Bob Argo are together again in Heaven.”
Funeral services have not been announced.
