Georgia Gee

November 1, 1936 — October 22, 2022

Georgia Alice Colquitt Gee, age 85, passed away on Saturday, October 22, 2022, after a very brief illness, and only 11 days prior to her 86th birthday. Georgia was born to the late William House “Bill” and Christine Mathews Colquitt in Crawford, GA, on November 1, 1936. She lived through many hours of chemotherapy, resulting from two devastating episodes of breast cancer, and she felt that God had other plans for her because he had left her on earth after those battles with cancer.

Mrs. Gee was preceded in death by her husband of 45 years, Robert LaRoy Gee, in January, 2011.  She was also preceded by her older sister, Betty Colquitt Barton; a special nephew, Bobby Boyles and a special great-niece, Kami Boyles, who were both 8 years old at the time of their death;  brothers-in-law, Dewey Barton, Bob Boyles and Joe Williams.

After graduating from Oglethorpe County High School in 1954, Georgia went to Atlanta in search of a fulltime job and began employment with Equitable Life Assurance Society where she remained a faithful employee for many, many years. She remained close friends with a large number of co-workers, and she kept in contact with even more of them. Georgia loved our Lord and Savior with all her being. She was a faithful member of First Baptist Church of Morrow, serving on several committees and working in their food pantry until she began having physical issues and breathing problems. She loved her family, her Church, her country, but most of all she loved our God. After a fall which injured her pelvis, she located to The Retreat at Loganville in the assisted living area. She found purpose and great joy in life while at “The Retreat”, developed many close friendships and attended Chapel services three times a week. She was a compassionate servant to those who needed assistance or just needed someone to listen to them.

She is survived by her younger sister, Sandra Colquitt Lack (Bill), Asheville, NC; niece, Kris Barton Gower (Darrel), Loganville, GA; nephew, Kevin Boyles (Crissy), Jesup, GA; great-nieces, Kelsey Gower, Forsyth, GA; Reagan Gower and Rose Gower, both of Loganville; Megan Boyles, Jesup; and nephew, Brody Boyles, Jesup. Several first cousins and many second cousins also survive her.
