Georgia married the love of her life, Denny, on May 2, 1976, and they were devoted to each other for 43 years. Georgia was a 1970 Merrillville High School Graduate, and has served in several important roles in the Merrillville Community. Besides her job as a social worker for the Ross Township Trustees Office, she also had served in the banking business for over 20 years. Georgia also served her community strongly serving over 50 years with the Ross Summer Music Theatre, 15 years as the Fourth of July Parade Coordinator, 10 years as a volunteer for the Lake County Mental Health Association, 8 years as a telephone worker for Contact Cares, 6 years as a Merrillville Jaycee, and 5 years as a Merrillville Optimist Club member.

In addition to her service to the community, Georgia was recognized as the 1989 Merrillville Herald’s Woman of the year, and received the prestigious Merrillville Athena Award in 1996.
Georgia was passionate about helping people and especially those in need. She has helped lift the spirits of many and has dedicated her life to serving her community and the people in it. She loved theatre and was always making costumes, putting on makeup and supporting the cast if not part of the cast herself! She loved reading, could debate any topic, and was always willing to go the extra mile to make sure things were done right. She was kind, compassionate, generous without boundaries and intelligent. Her beautiful spirit will live on through the many lives she touched and it can be said that we are all better people because we knew “Teta” Georgia!
