Georgia graduated Granger High School in 1944 at the age of 16 then at age 17 she joined the US Cadet School of Nursing held in Austin's Seton Hall and hospital. When she was19 years old she returned to Granger to help her mother take care of their meat market and grocery store. Her father was in poor health at the time.

The family would like to thank her loving friends Teresa and Jeff Clark, Leon Peters, Kelly and Robert Tavarez, Don and Shirley Meyers, and cousin Evelyn Lanier for all of their help through the years. Special thanks to Visiting Angels home care for their compassionate caregivers.

We will miss her gentle sweet Spirit, her generosity and love of life. God is getting a wonderful angel.

My sympathies to all. Georgia was warm and caring and you knew it as soon as you met her. I’m glad we studied and partied and sang together.

I met Georgia in the early days at St. Vincent de Paul and got to know her later when we were in Bible Study together. I will remember her for her devotion to the Faith, her Czech heritage, and her sense of humor. Joe and I would like to express our deepest condolences to her family.

Thinking of you and praying for comfort in this time. I loved getting to spend time with Aunt Georgia in the past, and always looked forward to her beautiful letters and notes. She was a gifted communicator!!
