Georgina, known lovingly as Sis or Sissy to her siblings and Illinois family and friends, was a social butterfly and loved by everyone who knew her. She knew no strangers and befriended everyone. She began her life in Myrtle Beach working at Chapin Company. She had a few jobs in between including many years working for her friend Linda Russ, CPA, where she met many people in the restaurant industry. She finished her last several years of working as administrative assistant/bookkeeper for David Owens at Dockside and Creek Ratz restaurants in Murrells Inlet, where she made many more friends.
