Georgia attended school one year in Muddy Creek, then the family moved to Haines, where she finished school and lived the remainder of her life. She graduated from Haines High School in 1926 and attended Monmouth when it was called a teacher’s college.

She began teaching after one year at Monmouth, and finished her education at Eastern Oregon State College by attending during the summers and taking extension classes from the University of Oregon. Georgia graduated from EOSC in 1956 with a bachelor’s of science and a minor in music.

Georgia taught school at Lone Pine, Rock Creek, Muddy Creek, Haines and Baker City, teaching first grade at Brooklyn for many years. Altogether, Georgia taught school for 36 years. After retiring, she taught piano lessons for several years. She loved children and enjoyed every minute with them, whether teaching first-graders to read or teaching children to play the piano.
