Georgia was born Aug. 3, 1948, in Albia, the daughter of Richard and Patricia (Glasford) Rhoads. She married Ernest H. Foss Jr. on Aug. 30, 1968, in Marion. Ernest passed away in 2018.
Georgia worked at Kirkwood Community College as a custodian and retired from there in 2010 after many years of service. Georgia took delight in cooking and was noted for baking, especially her cakes. She enjoyed outdoor work, which included tending her flower garden and yard work. Her greatest joy, however, was the time spent with her beloved family. She forever will be remembered as a loving and caring wife, mother, grandmother and sister, whose memory will be cherished by all who knew and loved her.
