    I am deeply saddened to hear of Georgia’s passing, and extend my deepest sympathy and condolences to her Family.
    Georgia was extremely close to my entire Family, having lived a few blocks from my paternal Aunt Maria Larkin Goette, grandmother Nellie Larkin Daniels, and Aunt Catherine Daniels Summerlin, where she spent many happy times visiting her close friend,,and St. Vincent’;s Academy schoolmate, Marie Summerlin.

    Although Georgia was separated by time and distance from many friends while serving in the Navy, some of us were fortunate enough to be reunited in friendship in Savannah with Her in later life, and I am among those who enjoyed her company over several years in Senior times.

    I know you are comfortable in the sure and certain knowledge that Georgia has passed through Death to Life with our Blessed Lord, and Mary Immaculate forever.

    May she rest in Peace! with love, Jack

    Georgie was such an inspiration to me. She had the best sense of humor but also a very serious side to do the right thing and do it well and I never wanted to disappoint her. I’m so glad we had a little more time with her on our way to Florida, which included a first class tour of her beloved Savannah. Rest In Peace Georgie.❤️

  6. Patsy Wallace Weaver says:

    I grew up next door to the Spellmans and never missed the opportunity to go with Georgie to Leopold’s or Johnny Gannem’s for hamburgers. She was a few years older and I looked up to her. She inspired me to go to St. Joseph’s. My condolences to her family.

    So sorry to learn of Georgia’s death. She was so helpful to me in her volunteer service at the Diocese of Savannah archives ion securing records of my family. She was so gracious and generous in her dealing with people. She was ahead of her time in the women’s movement in securing such a prestigious position in the US Navy.

    In 1964 while a LTJG I served with a Georgia , a Naval Nurse in the Navy Recruiting service in Houston Texas. If this is the same nurse I knew then, I am so sad to read this news. I can vividly remember how kind, genuine and dedicated she was even then and was very understanding and friendly to this young Naval Officer. May she Rest In Peace..

    Very sad to hear that CAPT Spellman has died. I was a young Ltjg Navy Nurse stationed with her in Naples, Italy in 1975. She was always a kind and caring person and a great mentor to the junior officers. We also took some great road trips together around Italy which always included attending church services on Sunday.
    Thought of her and my many friends made at that duty station when I recently had the opportunity to get a military contract flight over and back from Norfolk. Very lucky to get back. Returned on the last flt. 29 Feb. Naples has always been and will forever be an exhilarating experience and Georgia always made it more special!
    Take care. God bless. Sincerely, Dolly Cherrington LCDR/USN/Ret
