In February, 1952 Georgia was united in marriage to Curtis H. Matthews and they went on to celebrate 45 years together. Mr. Matthews passed away June 14, 1997 in Port Orange, FL. Georgia graduated from Lebanon High School in 1949. In her younger years she loved riding motorcycles, roller skating, and bowling. During her working years, she worked as an electrician for Hershey Foods, where she retired in 1981. As life and time has a way of changing our activities, Georgia found time to enjoy bingo, cross stitch, reading and doing jigsaw puzzles. However, the one constant throughout her life was caring for and loving her family and friends. Georgia is survived by her daughter Leslie Matthews and partner Raymond Spohn, of South Daytona, FL, with whom she resided. She also leaves behind brothers Carl Brady of Lebanon, PA, Martin Habecker and wife Alice of Warner-Robbins, GA, and Dennis Habecker and wife Polly of Lebanon, PA.
