Georgia Carol was the retired proprietor of daycare centers operating in Baton Rouge, LA under the name “Nana’s Country Day School” from 1977 through the late 1980s. She was a self-made woman and innovator, building her businesses from the ground up. After retirement as an entrepreneur, she sat with the sick and elderly, which fit in well with her Christian commitment and desire to minister, believing that “in as much as you have done it unto the least of these you have done it to me” (Matthew 25:40). Georgia Carol was devoted to her God, her family, and her cats.
