On Sunday March 20, 2022, a dear family member, devoted and loving neighbor and friend departed this life for another land, “a city which hath foundations whose builder and maker is God.” (Hebrews 11:10)
Georgia E. Golden, our dear one, who has gone on before us, we sorrow, but not as those who have no hope. We sorrow because we shall miss her kindly smile, her helpful ways, her encouraging spirit, but mostly her smart-aleck remarks.
Georgia E. Golden was born on October 28, 1943, to the late Rev. John E and the late Lucille C. Golden of St. Simons Island, Georgia. Having surrendered her life to God at an early age, she joined the First African Baptist Church on St. Simons Island, Georgia. There she remained faithful until her death. She worked faithfully and long as First African Baptist’s secretary, so let us praise God that she has, along with all other tired laborers found in God a place to rest.
Georgia E. Golden attended Harrington Graded School on St. Simons Island and graduated from Risley Jr. and Sr. High School in Brunswick, GA. She graduated from Risley High School in the year 1961. Upon graduation, she attended Dillard University of New Orleans, LA, where she received her BA degree, and Atlanta University School of Social Worker, Atlanta, GA, where she received her master’s degree. She later became a social worker in New York City, Atlanta, GA, and later moved back home to work with the Department of Family and Children’s Services in Brunswick, GA, where she retired from.
She was a member of Zeta Iota Omega Chapter of Alpha Kappa Alpha, where she joined in the year of 1986. She was also a member of the St. Simons Land Trust and St. Simons African American Heritage Coalition.
She leaves to cherish her memories: uncle, Clifton Marlon Green (Mildred); her devoted, dedicated, loving and live in caregiver, niece, M. Elizabeth Hunter; cousins, Adelphinia Jackson-Brown (Robert) of Midway, GA, Lucille McNear of Brunswick, GA, and Dannie W. Davis and Marsha Whing both of Yulee, FL; and a host of other loving cousins, family, and friends.
Due to the current state of (COVID-19) pandemic and in order to promote social distancing, anyone entering the funeral home for viewing; as well as attending all graveside or funeral service, either inside or outside, must wear a mask. We will also limit the number of persons allowed to enter the funeral home or any other facility at any given period during the viewing process. We ask that you leave the premise upon exiting the building. The family is most appreciative to each of you for all acts of kindness shown to them during this difficult time in their lives.
