    Please know what an important role “Grandma Georgia” played in the life of my daughter, Nikki Couch. Not only was she there for Nikki, but Georgia was always there to help Stewart and me as well. She was a loving, kind and giving woman who will always hold a very special place in our hearts. Rest in peace, Georgia. We love you and will miss you.

    Ms. Georgia was one of the first friends I met on H.I. when I moved here 11 yrs ago. I just loved her sense of human and her ready smile. She was the high light of my day when I delivered meals on wheels to her. She was a dear, sweet lady.
    May God give you, her family, peace & comfort.

    Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. I first met Miss Georgia many years ago when I went to visit her with her brother Dave. She was a really sweet special lady and will be missed by many.

    Miss Georgia will be missed by anyone who had the good luck to know her. She was delightful. I remember her “testing” the grapes at Connors Supermarket and one of the cashiers saying “We have to weigh her when she comes in and again when she leaves so we know how much to charge her for the grapes. She was one of a kind. Rest in peace, Miss Georgia. Our prayers are with the family.
