Stilson

Georgia Barrett Stilson, née Fauls, passed away Aug. 17, in St. Marys surrounded by her family and many friends.

She is survived by her husband, Colby; her three children, Jennifer, Colby and Hilary and their spouses; her twin brother John and his wife; and her four grandchildren, Heather, Stephen, Shane and Daniel. She leaves behind a legacy of friends and family who will miss her dearly.

She was born on Nov. 27, 1941, in Chicago and married Colby Stilson Jr. on March 31, 1962, in Baltimore. They recently celebrated their 55th wedding anniversary. She and Colby raised their three children in Long Island, N.Y., before making their home in St. Marys — always a devoted Chicago sports fan.

As an active volunteer in her community, Georgia touched the lives and hearts of everyone who knew her. Her generosity and love for life was unmeasured. At the King of Peace Episcopal Church, she was on the vestry and altar guild. Also, volunteering at the humane society, the Navy League, Camden House and the Southeast Georgia Health System. Not to mention her love for golf, this brought many other opportunities for volunteering. 2017 was the 14th year that she and Colby volunteered at The Players Golf Tournament at Sawgrass.

The service to honor and celebrate the life of Georgia Stilson will be at 11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 26, at King of Peace Episcopal Church. The Rev. Al Crumpton will preside.

Memorial donations may be made in her name to King of Peace Episcopal Church located at 6230 Laurel Island Parkway in Kingsland.

Allison Memorial Chapel and Funeral Home of St. Marys is in charge of arrangements.
