    Georgia was a friend of mine and we kept in touch all the time . I have not known her very many years but we got to be friends when we both lived at Weatherby apartments . We kept in touch after I moved. She was a very good friends, and I will miss her .

  • Linda Griffin

    A beautiful lady. I knew Georgia from Job’s Daughters with her daughter Carol and met up with her again working at Vic West Elementary. My daughter also went to Vic High with her granddaughter. Its a small world. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

  • Judy Harris

    Georgia was a very dear cousin to my Mum Lorna (Perth, Scotland).They were like sisters and were in regular contact until my Mum’s passing in August last year. Georgia continued that link with me and was always interested in my own children and grandchildren.
    Georgia’s focus on others was typical. Ever altruistic, she would send thoughtful little gifts which will always be treasured. Georgia was so considerate of others. and was modest about her own special nature and her kindness.
    I will never forget my visit to Victoria 2019 when she gathered the family together to meet me.
    Thank you Georgia just for being you xx

    Auntie Georgia was a kind, caring and communicative cousin to my mother Lorna who passed in August ‘23. Despite the huge distance they were always close and loving. It is the end of an era for that wonderful generation of sisters and cousins. Together again.
