After a valiant battle Georgette was called home on December 10th 2018 to be with the Lord. She was surrounded by her family. Georgette is survived by her loving husband Wade, daughter Paris (Joseph Dominic), son Colton, furbaby Riley and grandfurbaby Herc.

She married the love of her life in 1987, and they just recently celebrated their 31st anniversary. She worked for many years as a Phlebotomist for Quest Diagnostics. Georgette was always active in the community, whether it was a Cheerleading coach, volunteering for the midget wrestling organization, marathons for organizations for illnesses such as ALS and Cancer. She started and maintained the Marvin Newsome Scholarship Fund for Pennsville Memorial High School. Georgette had a passion for cooking, loved to dance, and had a soft spot for animals. She enjoyed reading, shopping, the beach, watching sunsets on her patio. But her greatest joy was taking care of others, her friends and especially her family. Georgette was the pillar of her family. She was spontaneous in nature and had a zest for life. Her smile was contagious. Georgette was truly the straw that stirred the drink.
