Georgia Ann Cohee

Georgia Ann Cohee of Ft. White, Florida, beloved mother, sister, aunt, niece, friend, and devoted Chicago Cubs fan passed away in Gainesville, Florida on the evening of December 19, 2016. Georgia was predeceased by her husband Edward “Ted” Jr., son Edward “Teddy” III, and daughter Melissa. She is survived by her son, James Cohee; brother, Terry Newth; sisters; Susan Stanfield, Mary Schmidt, and Kristi Newth; nephews: Greg Newth and Christopher Schmidt; nieces: Amy Wilson and Andrea Newth; and her treasured Chihuahuas: Carlos, BooBoo, and Beanie. Born in Milwaukee, WI on August 8, 1942, Georgia and her family moved from Wisconsin to south Florida, where she met Ted, her future husband, settling in Hollywood, FL where they started a family. The Cohee family moved to Cottondale, FL in 1989 where Georgia eventually became the owner of the popular Cohee’s Café (formerly Nic Nac Nook) in Marianna, FL.  Georgia was a very adventurous person; she was not content to sit at home when there were places to see. She worked hard and loved living an exciting life, wanting to see the world and all that it had to offer. She lived on a boat with her family, she sailed throughout the Caribbean, she was a pilot, she owned an insurance company and four restaurants, she lived in a foreign country, and she was an avid RVer. She loved playing paintball, owned horses, and was an avid rider. She traveled all over the world, she was able to see the Chicago Cubs win their first World Series in 108 after being a fan for 30 some 30 years; she was also a NFL owner as a shareholder for the Green bay Packers. Georgia was an amazing mother and friend and will be dearly missed. The family is grateful for the outpouring of love and support during this tough time. 

A private memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family in Ft.  White, FL. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that contributions be made to the Samuel Railey Efurd Scholarship in Georgia’s name, C/O Chipola College Foundation, 3094 Indian Circle, Marianna, FL 32446.
