She graduated from the University of Pennsylvania as a Registered Nurse in 1963 and then devoted herself to caring for her family as a loving stay-at-home mom. She generously volunteered her time at various organizations, including the Delaware County Pregnancy Center and the Kempton Camp Music Festival. In her free time, she loved playing the piano and organ at different church ministries. Georgeann enjoyed spending her winters in Florida at the Holiday Travel Resort in Leesburg, FL.
