In memory of
Jan. 2, 1943 - July 2, 2009 She was the daughter of Arthur and Georgia Rennick, both deceased. Georgia was born in Scottsbluff, Neb., on Jan. 2, 1943, and grew up surrounded by a large, loving family in the beautiful hills of Wyoming. She graduated class valedictorian from Sunrise Wyoming High School in 1960. She attended business college in Denver until she and David were married in 1961. They started their lifelong adventure together in Dayton, Ohio, where their two children were born. David's career in the U.S. Air Force took them on to Charleston, S.C.; Marietta, Ga.; Niceville, Fla.; Durham, N.C.; Montgomery; and lastly to Annandale, Va. Throughout those many moves, Georgia was a continuous volunteer worker for the military, community, and church organization helping others and keeping her family headed in the right direction. While in Virginia, she started a career in the banking business starting with First Virginia Bank and ultimately ending with Bank of America after a series of bank mergers. A testament to her caring ways was Bank of America awarding her the top customer service representative in the mid-Atlantic area, which gave her and David a chance to relax and enjoy a trip to Bermuda. Throughout her life, she was always guided by her faith and knowledge of God's desires for us to enjoy this life to its fullest while honoring him. She always had a smile and a concern for the wellbeing of others, even while battling her disease. After moving to Huntsville in 1999, Georgia and David became active at the Grace United Methodist Church, and as she became ill, she participated with the Lilies of the Valley Cancer Support Group. During her illness, she was well cared for and supported by the many wonderful, professional staff members of the Clearview Cancer Institute and the Huntsville Hospital, as well as her church family and the Lilies. She is survived by her husband, David; her precious daughter, Cindy Jennings and husband Randy of Cumming, Ga.; her devoted son, Michael Hickman and wife Karla of Auburn; her brother, Roger Rennick and wife Bonnie of Norfolk, Va.; and four wonderful grandsons, Jacob and Dawson Jennings, and Brett and Maxton Hickman; and brother-in-law, Bruce Hickman and wife Sally of Sand Point, Idaho. She will be interred at the Evergreen Memorial Gardens in Panama City, Fla., at a later date and a memorial service will be held at 11 a.m. Saturday at the Grace United Methodist Church with Pastor Steve West officiating. Laughlin Service Funeral Home is assisting the family. Anyone wishing to honor her memory may make a contribution to the Grace United Methodist Church building fund or the Lilies of the Valley.
