Georganna graduated from the University of Georgia with a degree in education. She taught elementary school for nearly 30 years in Atlanta and Roswell. After her retirement, Georganna was active in her history groups of DAR, UDC, and DAC. Georganna loved antiques, traveling, her family and pets, but she especially loved her Lord Jesus Christ.
