Georgia had many passions in life that included traveling to visit family and attending her son-in-law’s football games, making her family’s favorite gumbo, and caring for her beloved dog, Cotton. She was a member of the Baptist faith and past Worthy Matron of the Eastern Star.

She is welcomed into Heaven by her parents.

She will be missed by her daughter; Norberta Haffner and husband George Haffner of Belton, Texas, grandson; Kevin Haffner of Dallas, Texas, granddaughter; Kristin Haffner of Belton, Texas, and great-granddaughter; Audrey Haffner of Fort Worth, Texas.
