Cindy Smoot George, age 56, of Hoschton, passed away on Sunday, March 16, 2014. Cindy is most remembered for her ever-present smile and uplifting spirit. Cindy led a full life in both work and play and she embraced each day with enthusiasm. Her husband of almost 29 years, Eddie, was the joy of her life; step son Brandon George and wife Robbin; step grandchildren Brendan and Collin and she cherished her friends. Cindy enjoyed travel, photography, and loved working out, especially the Zumba classes for the past year. She is preceded in death by her parents Joseph and Betty Smoot and brother Jeffery Smoot.
Cindy served her community with the same passion she had for her loved ones. She was a member of the Hoschton Women’s Civic Club for a number of years, where she enjoyed a variety of activities, especially the Santa at the Depot event every year, and had served as president. She was active in Relay for Life, belonged to the Georgia Government Finances Officers Association, had been a member of the Pilot Club, and enjoyed participating in area community and civic events.
A member of the Jackson County Area Chamber of Commerce, Cindy was a graduate of the chamber’s 2007 Leadership Jackson class. She and five other members of the class continued to gather over the years, in the process sharing various community interests, and in 2013, they officially named themselves The Lucys to promote community advocacy.
Cindy worked as senior staff accountant in the finance department of Jackson County, a job she was thrilled to begin just a year ago. She served as city clerk/administrator for the City of Hoschton March 2010-2013 and prior to that, she was a real estate agent at Prudential Georgia Realty and served as controller at Armada Vans from 1986-2001.
Cindy George was an inspiration; a beautiful soul. The sparkle in her eyes that everyone loved and remembers will continue to brighten her family and friends as they mourn her sudden death. A Memorial Service will be held 2:00 PM Friday, March 21, 2014 at Lawson Funeral Home Chapel. A reception will be held following the service at the Hoschton Depot.
