She was born September 26, 1953, in Artesia, New Mexico, to Georgia Estella “GE” and Emma Josephine Wilson Newman. She married Ferris Timothy on August 19, 1996, and he died October 2004.
Georgia was the owner and operator of the Randlett Mercantile from 2001-2016. One of her favorite pastimes was B.S.-ing with the customers at “The Merc.”.
