We are deeply sorry for your loss - the staff at Swansboro
HUBERT - Georgia Lee Powell, 73, of the Bear Creek Community in Hubert, passed away Friday, January 21, 2022 at her home. Memorial services will be held at 2:00 PM on Saturday, January 29 at Jones Funeral Home, Swansboro Chapel.
Georgia was a daughter of the late George Powell of SC and Myrtle Tilton of Hubert, NC. Georgia was not afraid to venture out and start something new, having operated the Red Barn Variety Store, Red Barn Variety Seafood and Rainbow Trucking from the early to late 80’s. Georgia turned her passion to a career in real estate where she made her mark in the community as a top real estate agent later opening Racing Realty with her daughter in Swansboro, NC. Georgia wasn’t all work she enjoyed cooking, spending time with her family, fishing and traveling. She was a wonderful Mother, Memaw and friend to all that knew her.
She is survived by her son, Scott Ligon (Valerie) of Jacksonville; daughter, Candace Burns (Roger) of Hubert; her grandchildren, Hayden Ligon, Zoey Burns, Jerry Burns, Christopher Burns, Kayla Weaver, Stephen Tuton and Adam Tuton; as well as three great-grandchildren; sister, Marion Thomason of Hubert; and nieces, Crystal Morton, Robbin Horner, Megan Tilton, Katrina Tilton and Heather Perry.
Georgia will be deeply missed but NEVER forgotten.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests memorials be made to 3HC Home Health and Hospice Care, 150 Techcon Way, Pollocksville, NC 28573.
