Georgia was a daughter, sister, wife, and mother. She loved children and taught Sunday School to the younger children wherever the family was living. She would often stop to pickup children who would not have a ride to church. It has been said that she was a direct influence on the personal relationship with Christ of one of the little girls that she taught who is now a missionary.

You would find her helping out with whatever her children were interested in. She was a Cub Scout den mother twice in her lifetime. She was founder and sponsor of the Vinton Elementary 4-H club and was a Northside Middle School 4-H sponsor. She was a member of the Vinton High School Band Boosters.

She drove a school bus part time and became a full time driver after the death of her husband. Georgia was an award winning insurance sales person winning trips and bonuses from her sales.

She loved her birds and plants and had multiple feeders out for the birds. She loved to watch the Cardinals, Blue Jays and her beloved Humming Birds. She would sit and watch the birds in her back yard playing in amongst her plants and when she would see a bird she did not recognize she would grab her bird books and start looking it up. She was also an amateur plant horticulturist. At one point she had over 450 plants. Oh, my, how she loved her plants!!

She was preceded in death by her husband James O. Ferguson and daughter Marsha Marie Ferguson. Her father, Ralph J. Quinn and mother Mary Frances Quinn as well as by her brother William Ray Quinn and sisters Emmadel Quinn Schlischer, Alma Jean Quinn Mathewson and Janet Quinn LaGrone.
