November 13, 1949 - February 23, 2021
Mrs. Georgia Ann Simmons Whitson was born to the union of William C. and Rosie Mae Taylor Simmons on November 13, 1949 in Talladega, Alabama. At an early age, Georgia accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and united with Mt. Pilgrim Baptist Church. She attended school in the Talladega City School System. Upon her completion of school, Georgia began working for the City Board of Education as a cook for 35 years before retiring on November 30, 2014. Georgia and Mr. Tommie L. Whitson were married on June 30, 1978. She loved her husband and her family dearly. Georgia was such an energetic and fun-loving person, and it was proven especially during the holidays when she cooked for her relatives and friends. She loved eating, beverages, music, watching TV, and spending time with her family. She was a loving wife that did not spend many nights away from home and you can rest assure she would be home at night. Her husband will forever cherish her memories, as when she was able, she would not dare allow Mr. Tommie to wear any faded jeans or shirts, they would be replaced quickly. Georgia gracefully accepted her heavenly wings on Tuesday, February 23, 2021 at her home with her loving husband by her side. She was welcomed home by her parents, Mr. and Mrs. William C. and Rosie Mae Simmons, siblings, Joe Charles, Jerry, and Bobby Gene Simmons. Georgia leaves a legacy of love to be cherished by her husband of 42 years, Mr. Tommie L. Whitson; three brothers, William (Jeannett) Simmons, Elijah Simmons, Lawrence (Carol) Simmons; six sisters, Elizabeth Funderburg, Lillie Stockdale, Mary Lynch, Thelma (John) Jackson, Barbara (Marvin) Draper and Louise (Jeff) Hawkins; special cousin, Regina Glover; and a host of nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
