Ms. Georgia was a loving wife, mother and grandmother whose family was her passion. She had a smile that was contagious and could light up a room.

Following the passing of Lawrence in 2011, she moved to New Iberia to be near family, where she resided until her passing on February 15, 2014 at the age of 71.
