Georgia was married to late Everett Williams for 52 years, and they were blessed with six loving children. She loved her family, friends, and those who called her “Ma.” She was full of joy and laughter even through pain. “Laughter is the best medicine with no side effects,” (Prov. 17-22a).

Georgia was educated in the Lee County School System, and W. B. Wicker High School. She attended Central Carolina Technical Institute and received certification as a Seamstress, and loved sewing challenges (making clothing, etc.). She was home maker, excellent cook.

Georgia gave her life to Christ at an early age and served faithfully at Tempting Congregational Church under the leadership of Pastor J.C. Capps, and later served under the leadership of Pastor Percy Lee Hawes Sr., in Sanford, North Carolina. In her later years she joined Ebenezer Pentecostal Church in Sanford, NC., and served under the leadership of Pastor Glenn Williams for more than ten years. And then returned to Tempting Congregational Church to continue her Christian journey. Georgia later moved to Carthage, North Carolina and continued her Christian walk at Saint John’s Church of God, and served under the leadership of Pastor Nathan Hooker, until her illness. She then relocated back to Sanford, North Carolina. Even though her health began to decline she continued to maintain her faith until God called her home.
