Born and raised in Harrodsburg, Ky., she was the daughter of the late George W. Edwards and Gloria Garner Edwards. She graduated from the University of Kentucky with a degree in Social Work. Georgie was a compassionate soul and worked as a social worker in Lexington, Ky., for several years. Georgeanne always had a wonderful sense of adventure. She eventually changed career paths to become a travel agent, so she could explore the world. Besides Harrodsburg and Lexington, she lived in Santa Fe, N.M., Perryville and Versailles, Ky., then finally New Orleans, La. Georgeanne was a lover of the arts and theatre, music, family genealogy and history, traveling and gardening. She was an ardent fan of the UK Wildcats and the New Orleans Pelicans, and a Bruce Springsteen fan of the first degree. Her greatest love and commitment was to her family.

Georgeanne leaves behind to mourn her loss her two children, Jennifer Jones and Patrick Duncan (Sarah) of St. Petersburg, Fla.; her furry baby, Josie; one sister, Judy Edwards, New Orleans, La.; three brothers, Donnie (Sheila) Edwards, Richmond, Ky., Bill Edwards, Lexington, Ky. and David Edwards of Versailles, Ky. Georgeanne cherished her grandchildren, Shaun Patrick Fischer and Tyler Loyd; and her beloved nephews, Tate Logan Edwards and William “Taylor” Edwards. She was especially close to her great niece, Kayleigh Love or “K-Love” (as she called her) Bruyn.

She is preceded in death by her parents; and one nephew, George Christian Bruyn.

Visitation with family and friends will be from 2:00-4:00 p.m. with a service at 4:00 p.m. to commemorate Georgeanne’s temporal length of existence on earth.
