Joyce Robey Georges, 87, of Savannah, GA, passed away on Saturday, December 10, 2022.
Born on December 15, 1934 in Sardis, GA, Joyce grew up with a passion for dance, Shirley Temple and
everything New York City, especially the Rockettes. She moved to Savannah in 1952 to attend Candler
School of Nursing, and graduated at the top of her class. She was employed by Candler Hospital as a
Registered Nurse for 38 years, and was loved and respected for her caring and compassionate treatment
of patients. She retired in 1998.
Her love of dance and pageants continued throughout her life. She tap danced for the elderly in care
homes, and was proud to be a contestant in the Ms. Senior Savannah Pageant in 2002.
Joyce is survived by her three children, Terrence Georges, Duane Georges and Melissa Georges, and
three grandchildren, Luke Dilworth, Saxon Dilworth and Zoe Georges.

The Jackson family
My sincere condolences to the family of Mrs. Georges. She was a loving and special neighbor who will missed by all that knew her. May the Lord continue to give you comfort and peace during this time of bereavement.
Joyce was a dear friend and we shared many good times together. As a student and later as a registered nurse, I admired her passion for nursing. She adored her children and was very proud of them; Melissa’s beauty pageants and living in New York with a successful career and the boys and their ventures.
Her dance and beauty pageants brought her much happiness later in life.
Joyce was a uniquely fine individual and nurse who always worked hard
but found time for enjoyment.
My sympathy to her loving family.

Joyce was a classmate and friend beyond our nursing careers. While in Nursing School she lived across the hall from me with her roommate Carolyn Gregory Allen and she was always having fun! Our class had reunions at Lake Burton for many years ( Joyce usually got lost getting there but we always rescued her) Loved it! I know she will be missed . Please know that she loved her children very much. You have our Sincere Sympathy.
