Georgia H. Conley Stevers, 82, of Moline, died Thursday, Feb. 21, 2013, at Rosewood Care Center, Moline.
A graveside service will be held at 10 a.m. Wednesday, Feb. 27, at Sunset Lawn Cemetery, Harrisburg, Ill. Esterdahl Mortuary & Crematory, Moline, is assisting the family with arrangements.
Georgia was born on Oct. 17, 1930, in Mountain Township, Saline County, Ill., the daughter of Henry Nelson and Eula Ann Sneed Conley. She married William Eugene Stevers in June of 1948, and three children were born from this union, Patricia Ann Stevers, Wendel E. Stevers and Wayne E. Stevers. Georgia moved to the Quad-Cities in 1956 with her family.
Georgia worked as a dietary supervisor for East Moline Mental Health and East Moline Correctional Center and retired with 25 years of service to the state of Illinois. Georgia loved quilting and working on family history with her son.
Survivors include her sons, Wendel E. Stevers, Colona, and Wayne E. (Kitty) Stevers, Hampton; grandchildren, Peter A. Stevers, Wanetta E. Stevers Tipsword, Shawn C. Stevers and William A. Stevers; great-grandchildren, ShyAnn Stevers, Emiley Tipsword, Westlea Tipsword and Alyssa Tipsword; sister, Wanda M. Edwards Huff, Carrier Mills, Ill.; and great friends that she met along the path of life.
She was preceded in death by her parents; daughter, Patricia Ann Stevers; brother, Henry Conley Jr.; ex-husband, William Eugene Stevers; stepfather, Louis Otto Edwards; and sister, Gertie Mae Edwards Myers.
A precious one from us is gone, a voice we loved is still, her place is vacant in our home, which never can be filled, never shall she be forgotten, never from our memory fade. Loving hearts shall always linger around the grave where you were laid.

  Today is Monday, Sept. 22, the 265th day of 2014. There are 100 days left in the year.

1864 -- 150 years ago: The board of education has granted Thursday as a holiday for the children, with the expectation that parents who desire to have their children attend the Scott County Fair will do so on that day and save irregularity the rest of the week.
1889 -- 125 years ago: The guard fence around the new cement walk at the Harper House has been removed. The blocks are diamond shape, alternating in black and white.
1914 -- 100 years ago: The Rev. R.B. Williams, former pastor of the First Methodist Church, Rock Island, was named superintendent of the Rock Island District.
1939 -- 75 years ago: Abnormally high temperatures and lack of rainfall in Illinois during the past week have speeded maturing of corn and soybean crops.
1964 -- 50 years ago: Installation of a new television system in St. Anthony's Hospital, which includes a closed circuit channel as well as the three regular Quad-Cities channels, has been completed and now is in operation.
1989 -- 25 years ago: When the new Moline High School was built in 1958, along with it were plans to construct a football field in the bowl near 34th Street on the campus. Wednesday afternoon, more than 30 years later, the Moline Board of Education Athletic Board sent the ball rolling toward the possible construction of that field by asking superintendent Richard Hennigan to take to the board of education a proposal to hire a consultant.
