Through their marriage, they lived in Kansas, Colorado, California and Minnesota. Georgia worked as a real estate agent during her working years. They moved to Minnesota in 2004 and Georgia has continued to live here since her husband died on November 4, 2012.

Georgia loved to quilt. She quilted for her children and also donated many quilts to her churches throughout the years. She was also an avid water skier, doing it all the way until she was 70. Above all, Georgia was a devoted wife and mother, who was kind, caring, loving and gentle. She loved to meet people and served many places as the unofficial greeter. She loved to take coffee breaks with her grandchildren and great grandchildren when they were small.

She is survived by: her daughter Judy (Daniel) Lund, son, Mark Dhority; her grandchildren, Lisa (Doyle) Johnson, Eric (Heidi) Lund, Brittany (Enoch) Miller, and Amber (Tony) Niehaus, and 9 great grandchildren; one sister, Reta Burns, other relatives and many friends.
