Aug. 28, 2019 — Georgia Fithian McMullen, 77, formerly of Florence, lost her fight with Lewy Body Dementia on Aug. 17, 2019, at home with family and friends at her bedside.
Georgia was born April 11, 1942, in Grants Pass, Ore., to Tom and Leona Fithian. She Moved to Florence in late 1940 and graduated from Siuslaw High School, where she was crowned Rhododendron Queen in 1960.
Georgia worked at many jobs through the years but the one she enjoyed the most was as a freelance personal trainer while living in Eugene, Ore.
Her most loved hobbies were attending to her many orchids that she won fair ribbons for. Her Dachshunds, which she had five of during her life, were her constant companions and love. She also had a great passion for Corvettes, which she had until her death.
Georgia was a sweet and kind person who always thought about others before herself. She was dearly loved by persons who knew her.
She will be missed by her loving husband and family; they will miss her smile, wit and loving care.
