  6. I first remember Georgia Lou from when I was in grade school and her opticians was on the square next to the Spotswood Hotel. She was always so pretty and sweet and kind when I would visit. My thoughts and prayers are with her family in their loss.

  7. I can’t believe that I recognized her picture. It has been so long since I had been a customer of the Jeans Opticians. I start getting my glasses with her when I was in the second grade. Bless her heart, she and the two men’s that worked there would help mother and dad because I was so nearsighted. Thank you Georgia for taking care of me until I was about 18 years of age.

  8. My Father, Lester Reid Daniel worked with Georgia Lou from the inception of Jean Opticians in circa 1951. They were also active together in the Glasgow Presbyterian church from about that same time. Obviously both families were close for all the decades. As a child I remember going to Georgia Lou’s home and spending the day playing with Randolph. At Church on Sundays I could count on always seeing Georgia Lou playing the Organ. My brothers and sister dearly loved Georgia Lou and will always have a special place in our hearts for her and her family. Such an extrodinary person.

    • Michael and I didn’t have the opportunity to meet Georgia Lou, but the stories we have heard from Honor and friends we would have definitely loved having her as a neighbor. Our heartfelt condolences go out to Honor and all of Georgia Lou’s family.

  10. Marcia and Mark Eastin
    So very sorry for your loss, please accept our deepest sympathies 🙏🏻❤️

  11. I loved Georgia Lou and my mom, Marybell loved her and the the Pott family grew up with listening to her beautiful music every Sunday. My Dad, Doc Pott played golf with her husband as well as I. They frequently visited at Old Top Rail Farm. She played at my wedding in 1979 and at my parents memorial in 2014, which is the last time I saw her. I saw her many times in the years between when visiting my family in Glasgow. The last thing she said to me was, I know who you are! Lol. Being the youngest of 5, I wasn’t sure if she would remember me. She was a delightful lady and my heart goes out to her family and her church family. RIP Georgia Lou

  12. She was my first cousin. She will surely be missed. She was a part of the Bailey family. I remember her being at our Bailey reunions for many years. I remember going to uncle Paul and Aunt Luverta Biggers’ house when I was a child and she would be there. Precious memories.

  13. I will truly miss you “Ju Ju.” You were a big part of my life growing up.Thanks for all the memories and love.

  14. I’m so sorry for your loss. Georgia Lou was very special lady who was loved by everyone who knew her.

  15. Having grown up in the Glasgow Baptist Church I knew the Biggers family well and have known her dear cousin Ledean Bailey Hamilton practically as far back as my memory goes. I remember Mrs. Wilson as the organist of the First Presbyterian Church. My sympathies are very much with the family in this very difficult time. The world I’m sure is a poorer place with Mrs. Biggers passing.
    Respectfully,

  16. Honor I’m so sorry to hear the passing of your mother. I send my deepest condolences to you love.
