Georgia was one of a kind! Helped me learn the ropes at the Paris Express and I was awful at first. She was always so upbeat and full of fun. I’ll never forget when she turned “50” and we put a banner across the express that said she was half a century. I think she kinda wanted to kill us!! I loved her singing, “I’ll Fly Away” at the address machine as she whizzed those names in the newspaper. She was never a quitter!! I was honored to shop at her greenhouse and see all of her creations! God Bless you family at this sad time. All our love! ~ Vickey and Marvin

We are so very sorry for your loss Bill & Debbie. I have a few memories of going to see WH & Georgia when I was a little girl. When I think of visiting their house, I think of the time my mom, Norma Jean, was so happy to tell Georgia about her first grand baby. My mom was so excited she forgot the baby’s name. Georgia just laughed so hard at her. I also remember seeing her just a few years back in a local store. She didn’t recognize me until I told her who I was. And there was that big ole smile and laugh. My memories of Georgia are sweet ones.
We love you and send hugs and prayers.

I am so sad to hear of Georgia’s passing. She and W.H. have always had a special place in my memories of when I was young. My parents and their generation of cousins (W.H. and Georgia, W.T. and Norma, Joe Bill and Ann, Jim and Dorothy) spent happy times swimming at Cove Lake and having picnics together with us children - they were so much fun to be around! Georgia was always beautiful and had the most wonderful and infectious laugh. I send each of you my love and prayers as you mourn this loss of Georgia‘a presence in your life. She was a special person! Your cousin, Judith

Georgia and my mother, Ina Young, were good friends for several years. Mom would visit Georgia and talk shop (flowers and plants) over coffee or just working in the greenhouse together. Prayers go up for her family and other friends.
