Georgia L. Davis

September 11, 1934 — June 4, 2024

Georgia Lee Davis slipped peacefully into the arms of Jesus in the early morning hours of June 4, surrounded by her loving family. A native of Corbin, Kentucky where she was born on September 11, 1934, Georgia moved to Louisville as a youngster and was as outgoing as she was beautiful. She was a 19-year-old cashier at Silverman’s Department Store in Louisville in the early ‘50s when she met Bill Davis, a handsome young Army veteran who, after just two dates, decided they should be married. She agreed, and they stayed married for almost 71 years. Together they raised two daughters, Debbie and Vicky, and a son, Doug.
Georgia was a diligent worker who managed to not only teach her girls how to really clean a house, but found time for work outside the home, which fed her need for social interaction. She loved being around people, so her last job as a concierge for the Louisville Convention Bureau was the perfect fit for her people-loving personality.
Georgia and Bill were longtime members of Southeast Christian Church and were actively involved in their Sunday School class for decades.
Georgia was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2007 and was a grateful survivor. Her latest battle with heart disease led her to home hospice care, where she actually thrived for eight months. Her favorite hymn was “One Day at a Time, Sweet Jesus,” and that’s how she got through her final days, taking each one as gift by doing the things she loved: cooking, going to church, shopping, and eating out with her family. Her last full waking day on Earth was spent baking brownies for whoever wanted them. She first had decided to bake a cake that day. Why? “Because I can!”
She far surpassed her stated goals of spending one more Thanksgiving with her family by spending one last Christmas, Easter, and Mother’s Day with them. And it was that family that she loved so deeply till her dying breath.
“Blessed are the dead who die in the Lord, they shall find rest from their labor.” (Revelation 14:13)
Georgia is survived by her husband Bill; children Debbie Wagner (Carl) of Danville, KY; Vicky Ryden (Paul) of Duluth, GA; and Doug Davis of La Grange, KY. She leaves behind five grandchildren: Brent Wagner, Lindsay Ryden, Alex Wagner, Eric Davis, and Kristen Davis. She is also survived by the last of her four siblings, Lynn Hamilton (Mike) of Louisville.
