Georgia was born on February 13, 1940 in Potsdam, NY. She was the daughter of the late Ivan G. and Mary Cordelia (Evans) Coller and graduated from Canton High School in 1957. She then attended Watertown Business School.

Georgia began working for Walter E. Russell Drugstore and St. Lawrence County’s Social Services in the Budget Office for about three years until she was married and had a family. Some time later, she returned to Social Services as a typist in the early 1980s and retired as an examiner in May 1995.

On September 8, 1962, she married Alan Curtis Mitchell in the Canton United Methodist Church.

Her three children, Cristy Mitchell from Canton, Craig (Kathleen) Mitchell from Pierrepont and Corinne (Robert) Toomey from Canton, survived; three sisters, Glenyce (Stephen) Boone from Hermon, NY, Cheryl Barney from Canton, NY, and Andrea (Jerry) Rood from Canton; a sister-in-law, Terry Coller of Indianapolis, IN; and a number of nieces and nephews.

She was died of her husband, Alan, a brother, Gerald I. Coller, and a brother-in-law, Wayne Barney.

Georgia enjoyed reading biographies and romance novels, crossword puzzles, Broadway musicals, Barry Manilow, classical music, and a good game of canasta. She also loved sitting for her children, her own dogs, flowers in bloom, and bird watching.
