Georgia Ann Freeman
Lester Lackey & Sons Funeral Home

Georgia Ann Woods Freeman was born on June 5, 1938, in Covington. She was the oldest of three children born to the late Louis and Mattie Lou (Marks) Woods.

Georgia joined Bethelbara Baptist Church at an early age. She later joined Gaither’s Chapel UMC where she served faithfully in working and ushering until her health failed. Georgia got her formal education in Newton County Schools System where she graduated in the class of 1958. She went on to take some classes in nursing. She worked for many years at Newton County Hospital taking care of newborn babies. In her later years, she worked as a caregiver. 

She married the late Parker Freeman, Jr and to this union two children were born, Parker Alan and Warren Craig. They were the joy of her life along with her grandchildren and great-grandson. 

Georgia was a loving and giving person. Her grocery list would always consist of treats for her great-grandson Cameron, her cousins, Pastor and the children at church. She also carried treats to her friends in the nursing home. She always had something to give, even if she offered you her Boost protein drink. You rarely left her presence without a treat.

On Feb. 18, 2019, God called Georgia home. She is preceded in death by her parents; Mr. & Mrs. Louis (Mattie Lou) Woods; two brothers, Mr. Charlie Seal and Mr. Milton. Georgia also had a good friend and neighbor, who always looked out for her, Mrs. Annie Gaither, whom preceded her in death.

She leaves to cherish her memories, two sons, Mr. & Mrs. Alan (Gaynell) Freeman, Mr. & Mrs. Warren (TaKaKo) Freeman; two granddaughters, Ms. Tiffany Freeman and Mr. & Mrs. Johnathan (Ayana) Strutz; three grandsons, Mr. Christopher Freeman, Mr. Brandon Freeman and Mr. Isami Freeman; one great-grandson, Cameron England; special cousins, Mrs. Ann Marks-Bargie and Mrs. Lucille Woods-McKay; special friends, Mrs. Shondra Lawrence- Saxton and Mr. Henry Terrell; along with many other loving cousins and friends.

A funeral service was held at 1 p.m. Tuesday, Feb. 26 at Bethelbara Missionary Baptist Church, 11392 Highway 36, Covington, with the Rev. Carl H. Jones and the Rev. Kenneth Norrington officiating. Interment followed in the church cemetery. 

The family of the late Ms. Georgia Ann Freeman wishes to express our sincerest and heartfelt thanks and gratitude to our family, friends and neighbors, for all your many acts of kindness, shown during our time of bereavement. May God’s richest blessings shower upon your life.
