    Dear Angela, Tanya, Nathan and David,
    I doubt you remember me, but I worked for several years with your Mom at the Welfare Department. We used to have many fun times there, especially when we would have a pitch in. Your mom never failed to bring your Grandmother Ruby’s chicken salad. I had lost track of Georgia over the years that have passed. She was always so proud of all of you and wanted the best for you. I know she is at peace now. My prayers for all of you.

      Thank you for your kind and supporting words at this time Nancy. Of course, I remember you and others at the Welfare Department that worked so many years with mom. I agree that mom is at peace, no more pain. Her body and soul had endured so much over the years and now the struggle is over and she is “dancing” in the heavens. Thank you again for your comforting words and continued prayers, Angie

      Thank you Chad. It is so difficult to lose a mother. Thank you for your supporting thoughts.

    I am very sorry to hear of Georgia’s passing. I remember her from years ago, when I was little. She was so kind and sweet. She would pick us up in her car and take us to Burger Chef here in town. She would get us 4 kids small cokes, and her and my mom a coke. Then we would drive around listening to the car radio. I lost track of her through the years. If possible, I would be honored to attend service. Prayers for all of her family during these difficult days ahead.

This Saturday, May 21st at 3:30 we are having refreshments at Saint Mary’s Healthcare in Lafayette on Cason Street with the residents to honor and celebrate Mom’s life. Please come if you are able, I would love to meet you

    To all of Georgia’s family – I was so sorry to hear of Georgia’s passing. We worked together for years at what was then called the Clinton Coounty Welfare Department, and I truly enjoyed her company all that time. We had lots of laughs and shared lots of good times. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Warmly, Jan McGill

      Hello Jan, Mom loved your company also and the taco salads that you would stop and have when you had meetings in Indianapolis. I forget the name of the restaurant. Thank you for your words and continued prayers. We are having refreshments at Saint Mary’s Healthcare this Saturday, May 21 at 3:30 in Lafayette to celebrate and remember mom. Please join us if you are free, I would love to see you and hear stories about mom and yours adventures.
