Georgia A. Brown

December 30, 1944 ‒ February 04, 2019

Edison, Ohio
Formerly of Norwalk, Ohio

Georgia A. Brown, age 74, of Edison, Ohio and formerly of Norwalk, Ohio, passed away peacefully Monday evening, February 4, 2019, at her home.

Georgia was born on December 30, 1944, in Mansfield, to the late Richard A. and Gloria L. (Disbennett) Dailey. She graduated from Ontario High School.

She retired in 2007 from Freudenberg Nok in Milan, Ohio. Georgia previously held positions at Epic Technologies, ACMI, and Fanny Farmer Candy Factory. Everywhere she worked her co-workers became friends, she loved them all.

Georgia was introduced to Gary D. Brown by family and friends. They were married on July 7, 2007, in Norwalk. Together they made their home in Edison.

Georgia loved photography. She caught the shutter “bug” in the early 80’s and began capturing precious memories of her beloved family and friends. Her passion & eye for photography lives on through both of her granddaughters, who love it as much as she did. In her younger years Georgia loved square dancing with her husband and dancing the jitterbug with her sisters as they listened to their brother’s band. She was often found crocheting, sewing, collecting butterfly stickers, tending to her snapdragon & holly hock flowers or visiting her loved ones…she loved to chat! She had a soft spot for cats and wore her “Crazy Cat Lady” title with pride.

As a mom and grandma, Georgia took her role as such seriously. She was the “sports mom/grandma extraordinaire” who never missed a game and was the unofficial photographer for all of their events. Georgia will be remembered for her spunk and sass that came from the most caring, compassionate, giving, gentle, sharing, and loving ways about her. She will forever be remembered as “Sweet Georgia Brown”, “Bamma”, and “Crazy goofy goober grandma Georgia” and will be dearly missed.

Georgia is survived by her husband, Gary; children: Brian Perkins of Santa Monica, CA and Kelly Perkins Camp of Norwalk; step-son, David Brown of Willard; grandchildren: Tyler (Celeste) Camp, Katherine Camp, and Sydney Perkins; one great-grandchild to be born in March whom she so wanted to meet; step-grandchildren: Kristopher Brown and Curtis Brown; step great-grandchild, Max Brown/newborn; a brother, Richard (Diane) Dailey; sisters: Carolyn (Don) Travis and Marilyn (Robert) Lingafelter; uncle: Robert Dailey; aunt: Leona Steiner; numerous cousins, nieces and nephews; and her beloved cats: ChiChi and Cali.

She was preceded in death by her parents and sister, Beverly Jean Travis.

Her family will greet friends from 10 to NOON, on Saturday, February 9, 2019, at the Snyder Funeral Homes, Craven Chapel. (67 N. Main Street, Mount Gilead, OH 43338) A service celebrating her life will follow at NOON with Chaplain Jeff Slider officiating. Burial will follow in Mansfield Memorial Park.

If desired, memorial contributions may be made in her memory to Hospice of Morrow County.

  • What a pleasure it was spending a few Friday nights with Georgia as we would scrapbook and craft at Jess’s church. She sure touched everyone lives that she came in contact with.
    I’m so sorry for you loss.

  • My sincere condolences to the family….Richard, I am so sorry for your loss. 😢🙏🏻

  • My sympathies to the Dailey family & to husband Gary,
    Georgia had a calmness about her. She didn’t seem to be judgemental & I know how much her children and grandchildren meant to her. And they showed their love to her. She was thrown some terrible illnesses, but I know God wouldn’t let her suffer any longer. She will be sorely missed.

    • Thank you Cheryl, she loved you!!! She adored the card you created/sent to her. She laughed when she couldn’t figure out how to open the envelope the day she got it. Thank you for loving her.

  • So sorry for your loss. I wish we could have gotten together. We talked about it but her living in Ohio and I live in Calif made it impossible. We had a lot of childhood memories when I lived with them in Lexington. She even sent me pics of Brian and Kelly. I loved her as a sister and I will see her someday. Now she is strolling all over Heaven. See you someday, Georgie. Love you.

    • Thank you JoAnn! Even though I never you met you I heard all about you throughout my life, mom shared memories frequently when something would remind her of times with you and your family. She loved you too. If you are on FB please look me up, I have photos for you and need your contact info.

  • I am so sorry to see that your sister passed away Marilyn. I didn’t realize until I was checking Facebook. Keep her in your heart like I do with both my sisters…that way they will forever be with us.
    Hugs to you all,


  • Brian and Kelly

    Scott and I are both so sorry to hear of the passing of your mother. I’m sure she will truly be missed. Her picture looks just as I remember her.

    Scott and Lynn

  • Brian and Kelly
    So very sorry to hear of your mother’s passing she was always such a sweetheart of a lady and I know she will be missed by many.

  • Dear “Sweet Georgia Brown”, your Ontario High School classmates always enjoyed seeing you at our class reunions and the Ontario Alumni Association meetings. You were always smiling and seemed to truly enjoy being with your Ontario friends. We will miss you and our reunions won’t be the same happy events. I appreciated that you always wanted to help organize future meetings. So Sweet Georgia Brown you will be missed until we meet again. Condolences to Gary and your family.

  • Kelly and Brian, you and your families are in my thoughts and prayers, as well as the rest of the families. Georgia was a sweet lady and was always smiling. I remember when she used to babysit me. I’m so sorry I didn’t make it to the funeral. God bless.

  • Such a sweet, loving kind woman. An Angel now. Rest in Heaven Sweet Georgia Brown. Prayers for the family.

    🙏 Shirley Erwin
