After her father's death, Georgenia and her mother came to reside at the Haven Nursing Center where Georgenia lived until her death. The Haven was home to Georgenia and the staff was her honorary family members and treated her as such. She had a special friend, Becky Hatten, LPN, who could perform miracles with Georgenia and was a special help to her family.
She is survived by a sister, Miriam Hearn McDaniel, and several nieces and nephews.
Interment will be at East Haven Cemetery in Brookhaven, Mississippi, beside her mother.
The family would like to extend their most grateful thanks to all of those at the Haven who have taken such good care of Georgenia through the years with patience and love.
