Carrollton

Georgia Bowling, age 78, a beloved member of the Carrollton community, passed away peacefully at home on Saturday, November 18, 2023. Born on September 25, 1945, in Laurel County, Kentucky, Georgia was the daughter of the late Luther Garland and Virgie Owens Garland.

Georgia was a graduate of Bush High School in London, Kentucky. Throughout her life, she had a diverse career. She was the proud owner of GMB Communications Cell Phone Towers and had also worked for Wal-Mart in Carrollton, KY, where she contributed her skills to various departments.

Beyond her professional life, Georgia was known for her many interests and hobbies. She truly enjoyed watching University Kentucky Basketball and cherished spending quality time with family and friends while playing cards, particularly a game of "Rook." These shared moments brought joy and laughter to all those lucky enough to be in her company.

She was an active member of the Cove Hill Baptist Church in Carrollton, KY.

One of Georgia's proudest accomplishments was marrying her devoted husband Floyd Virgil Bowling on July 3, 1967. Their loving partnership stood as an inspiring example to all who knew them.

Georgia will be deeply missed by those who were closest to her. She is survived by her husband Floyd Virgil Bowling of Carrollton, KY, along with four nephews whom she adored. Georgia was predeceased by her son Floyd Edward Bowling. She is also preceded in death by her sisters, Julia Garland Collier and Beulah Garland Miller.
