She was born the youngest of 4 children on March 3, 1933, to World War I Veteran Charles Carey Webb and her French mother, Reine Louise George Webb. She was a beautiful red-haired southern lady with a deeply spiritual soul who lit up a room with her smile. She enjoyed a variety of colorful things in life. From arts and crafts and restoring antiques, to looking through old photographs, to singing along to her favorite music and singing lullabies while rocking her grandchildren, every part of Mrs. George’s life was filled with an abundance of appreciation and gratefulness. She also took great pleasure in the beauty of flowers, birds, and all nature, she cared deeply for her pets and passionately for her family. Reading God’s Word daily and growing spiritually was top priority in her life. She never met a stranger and was bold and lively in sharing her love for Jesus. She was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church. Mrs. George will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
