Georgia Marie's Story
Georgia Marie Stacy Havens, age 89, of Bastian, VA passed away Tuesday, August 15, 2017 peacefully in her sleep at Kissito Nursing & Rehabilitation Center with her loving family by her side.
She was born May 18, 1928 in the Suiter section of Bland County, VA, the daughter of the late Maluim Cephas & Beatrice Quillan Stacy.
Georgia was a lifelong member of Bastian Church of God where she ran the kitchen. Her love for her children, grandchildren, family & friends was an insight on what type of wonderful lady she was.
She had never ending faith in God throughout her life!
She retired from ABB where she worked with one of her close friends, Dana King for many years.
Her love of Bland County history was shown in her many picture albums she put together after her retirement. She was frequently sought out for her wealth of knowledge of events during her childhood.
Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband Jewell P. Havens and grandson Jacob Havens. She was the last surviving sibling of nine children of the Stacy Family and was also preceded in death by her brothers Ronald Stacy, Bobby Stacy and Jr. Stacy and sisters, Laura Kate Lane, Josephine Parks, Dorothy Kidd, Ina Brooks and Lois Hohenberger.
Left to cherish her memory are her three sons and daughters-in-law, Jewell Perry Havens and wife Anita of Baptist Valley, VA, Stacey Havens and wife Jackie of Princeton, WV and Tony Havens and wife Trish of Bastian, VA; her two daughters, Judith Havens of Mouth of Wilson, VA, and Kathy Havens Matney and partner Gil Hernandez of Pipestem, WV; nine grandchildren, Heath and wife Lori, Joshua and wife Kari, Jordan, Jade and husband Adam, Leanne and husband Chad, Madison, Dustin, Derek and Gabe; eight great-grandchildren; brother-in-law and sisters-in-law, John & Eileen Havens and Polly Stacy.
