Georgia May Anderson was born June 3rd, 1934 and departed this life February 27, 2017, at the age of 82 years, 8 months and 24 days at the Maple View Manor Nursing Home in Bainbridge, Ohio. She was the daughter of the late George Russell and Callie Mae Valentine Anderson.
Georgia lived her life in or near Cynthiana, Ohio for many years until she became unable to care for herself. She was cared for by her sister Darlene and her brother-in-law Mike until it was necessary for her to have 24 hour care, after which she entered the Maple View Manor Nursing Home which became “home” to her until her death. While there, she was visited often by her family, some bringing gifts, candy or flowers.
She leaves to mourn her passing one sister, Darlene Schreck and husband Mike; brother-in-law Elbert Grooms, Jr.; nieces and nephews, great nieces and nephews and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents; sisters Evelyn Humphries and Naomi Grooms; brothers Keith and Edward Anderson; brother-in-law Clinton Humphries and sister-in-law Mamie Anderson; a nephew Wayland Hamlin; a great niece Julie Hamlin and a great nephew Brian Hamlin. What a group of loved ones waiting in Heaven to welcome her when she arrived!
Georgia became a Christian early in her life and lived faithfully until the end. She was very consistent in prayer and Bible reading and in church attendance as long as she was able. Even when she was nearing the end, she spoke of Jesus and said she loved Him. She was also the janitor of her church and took special care to keep it clean and inviting.
Georgia was an industrious person and worked at home and in a factory for years. She was a very efficient person who could fix things that needed fixing around the home. She was a talented seamstress and made beautiful clothes for herself and others. She could even make beautiful coats and jackets. She also did cross-stitching and crocheting and made many beautiful afghans. She loved to read and in the later years spent many hours doing so. She had a quick wit and a sense of humor. She liked to tease and usually had an answer ready for any occasion. She made a lot of friends by her smile and friendly personality. She will be missed, not only by her family, but by her church family and friends.
The family wishes to thank anyone who made things easier in this time of sorrow: the Smith-Moore-Ebright Funeral Home, Reverend Wayne Kennedy, the staff at Maple View Manor, Dr. Morgan for her care and concern for Georgia during her stay there and to all who have sent flowers and other expressions of care.
Funeral services will be held 1 pm Thursday, March 2, 2017 at the SMITH-MOORE-EBRIGHT Funeral Home, Bainbridge with Rev. Wayne Kennedy officiating. Burial will follow in the Cynthiana Cemetery. Friends may visit with Georgia’s family from 11 until the time of service on Thursday at the Funeral Home.
