Georgia Eldridge went peacefully to be with the Lord on June 9, 2017. Georgia was born June 10, 1924, to Burr and Julia Sparkman in Bonham, Texas. She married Loyd Eldridge, also of Bonham, Texas, on October 23, 1940, and soon made Houston, Texas, their new home. Georgia was an extremely talented seamstress who successfully owned and operated Eldridge Interiors for over 40 years. She was an active member of Woodland Baptist Church, previously located in the Heights, until its unfortunate closing.

Grand children include Loyd Stegent and wife Sheri, Chandler Krus and wife Kristy, Kolbi Blanchette and husband Fuller; great grandchildren are Samantha Vargas, Natalee Stegent, and Callum Krus.
