In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death her sister, Marjorie (Felton) Mackert.
From her early years as drum majorette for the Sunbury Owls, to working in and managing offices in downtown Sunbury, to membership in past Regent for the Fort Augusta DAR, and lifetime member of the First Presbyterian Church, Georgianna contributed to her community and loved its history.
