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.

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.
