Georgia E. Yates Worsham, 90, passed from this life on Tuesday, March 12, 2019, at Arkansas Methodist Medical Center. She was born July 18, 1928, to W.O. and Leoda Box Yates. Georgia married Charles Webster Worsham on November 19, 1947. They were married for 69 years until his death on July 13, 2017. She was of Methodist faith and was an Eastern Star. She was a nurse at the Dixon Memorial Hospital, Arkansas Methodist Medical Center, and a nursing instructor for Delta Vocational Technical School for many years. Nursing and caring for the sick was her first love. After retirement, fishing and camping with Charles and friends took the place of nursing and became her favorite past time. They continued to do so until failing health prevented them from traveling.
