Georgia Rose Pinkett

Georgia Rose PinkettGeorgia Rose Pinkett was born August 3, 1927 in Princess Anne, Maryland to the late Daniel and Martha Mills. She was a devoted wife to the late Briscoe (Bud) Pinkett for 22 years. She answered the call of her Divine Master and transitioned from this life on Sunday, December 15, 2013, at Aurora Senior Living of Manokin, in Princess Anne.

She was educated in the Somerset County Public Schools. At an early age she became a member of Metropolitan U.M. Church in Princess Anne. She later served her church in several capacities; as an usher, a Communion Steward, a member of the Homecoming Committee, and a member of the Trustee Board.

Georgia moved to Philadelphia, Pennsylvania and worked for private families. She returned to Princess Anne and was employed at Campbell Soup Company. To improve her lot in life, she went back to Philadelphia and enrolled in courses to become a nurse’s assistant. After earning her Nurse’s Assistant Certificate, she decided to return to Princess Anne once again. She gained employment at Peninsula General Hospital in Salisbury, where she served patients in pediatrics for 20 years until she retired from that position. Her work in pediatrics endeared her to children. This led her to work as a part-time teacher’s assistant in the Somerset County Public School System for three years after her retirement from PGH.

When she married Briscoe (Bud) Pinkett, she moved to Mount Vernon. After his passing, she moved to Salisbury. When her health began to fail she was assisted greatly by Leona Hall and Nancy Harris, both of Salisbury, until she went to reside with her daughter, Rodulia (Vicky) Sutton in Temple Hills, Maryland. Due to further deterioration in her health, she was placed in the care of Aurora Senior Living of Manokin, in Princess Anne.
