Georgia was born on July 28, 1937 in Greensboro to the late BA Curtis and Eula Mae Curtis. She graduated from Greensboro Senior High in 1955, shortly after she married her high school sweet heart, Donnie. She then began her career as a secretary and raised two children as a loving mother and grandmother. Georgia resided in Greensboro until 2011, but due to health issues moved to an assisted living facility at Smith Mountain Lake, VA.
She is survived by, her children, Sherri V. Ward (Gene) and Mike Varner (Sharon); grandchildren, Amber Leggett (Cody) , Jason Varner (Katie); great-grandchildren, Turner and Griffin Leggett, and Merritt Varner; sister, Mary C. Denson (David); brother, Richard Curtis (Ellen); and numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Donald A. Varner.
The family would like to extend their gratitude to the staff at Runk & Pratt. They tirelessly worked to keep her happy, comfortable, and safe; for that we will forever be grateful.
