Georgia Lee Hansen Doyle Jewell

Georgia Lee Hansen Doyle Jewell peacefully entered into eternal life January 4, 2024 with family by her side.

Born January 5, 1937, in St. Louis, Missouri. She is predeceased by her parents George and Virginia Hansen, husband Thomas V. Doyle and husband Aldridge "Jack" Jewell. 

Georgia is survived by her sister Diane Hansen Sears, daughter Kathleen Doyle and son Thomas K. Doyle (wife Sandra), grandchildren Michael T. Hebb and Andrea Hebb, Jennifer Brotherton (husband Randy), Dawn Lee, and Robert Lee (wife Ali), eight great grandchildren, and one great great grandchild.

Georgia graduated from Riverview Gardens High School in 1954. In 1955, she married her first husband who was enlisted in the US Navy. Together, they raised their two children, residing in eight different states and one foreign country until settling in northern Maryland. She moved her family household thirteen times in her 20 year career as a military wife.

In 1975 Georgia became a welder, employed with Standard Building Systems in Point of Rocks, Maryland. It was there she met her second husband. When they married in 1979, they became curators of Willow Spring Farm near Lovettsville, Virginia where they boarded horses, grew huge vegetable gardens, a vineyard, and fruit trees.  Georgia taught herself to bake bread, do her own canning, and churn apple butter. The two remained together until his death in 2004.

Georgia was a woman of deep faith. She grew up in the church, was an accomplished pianist, loved to sing, enjoyed worship music, and other music of various genres. She held the position of Church Secretary and Treasurer at the King of Kings Worship Center in Purcellville,Virginia from 1988 to 2003. 

In 2015, she moved from Virginia to Southington, Ct. to live near her son. While there, she made many friends, traveled annually with her sister, and participated in activities such as Wii Bowling League, Plainville Senior Center Choral Group, and Ladies Game Night.  

Georgia always looked forward to spending time with her family. She especially got a kick out of playing with the "Greats" and shared a special bond with little Zander. 

Even though she had been living with cancer for the past ten years, she embraced her life with joy, laughter, and humility. She lived independently until her death. 

A service to celebrate Georgia's life will be held June 1, 2024, 12:00p.m. at Hillsboro United Methodist Church, 37216 Charles Town Pike, Hillsboro, Va. 20132. Please feel free to bring a photo and/or your favorite "Georgia Memory" to share.

In lieu of flowers, you may make a donation in Georgia's name to Plainville Senior Center, 200 East Street, Plainville, Ct. 06062  or to any charity of your choosing.
