Duane & Family, so sorry to hear of Georgia's passing. We thought of you two over the years after the dairy goat shows you put on. Glad we ran in to you a few times at the restaurant in Mulvane. Thoughts & Prayers, Paul & Robbie Wilkinson

Georgia was the perfect example of unconditional love. I'm going to miss her hugs the most I think, she'd wrap me up in a soft wonderful hug and say " I love you, you'll be ok" and I couldn't help but believe her.
If you needed prayer you went to Georgia, she had the best prayer chains! We often joked about how her prayer chains had 'mojo' because she had every denomination on stand by.
I remember when she was on the ambulance she helped deliver a baby, she was so pumped up she stated up all night sewing a baby blanket and baby clothes for the baby she helped deliver. She was smiling so big that day! She glowed.
'I can only imagine' the Welcome Home she got when she got to heaven, 💜💜💜
Until we meet again Georgia, I love you & I'll be OK

I remember as a child growing up with Sallie that you were a great Mother and was always so sweet to everyone. I know you made Heaven a much brighter place as you entered the Pearly Gates! My deepest condolences to Sallie and all her loved ones! May the Father’s comfort be with all her loved ones and keep you in Peace! Always here for you Sallie. All my love and Prayers, Rhonda Ballentine
