Georgia Maxine (Hambrick) Shade, 75, of Elizabethton, Tenn., went home to be with the Lord on Wednesday, February 15, 2023, at Hillview Health and Rehab Center of Elizabethton. Georgia was born in Elizabethton to the late William and Katherine (Vestal) Hambrick. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Danny Shade; two sisters, Bernice Guinn and Patsy Street; one brother, Carl Hambrick; and an aunt, whom she took care of, Lucille Miller.
Georgia worked as a housekeeper and always kept a clean and tidy home. She always took good care of herself and never went anywhere without her eyebrows drawn on. Georgia was very kind and giving and willing to help anyone that was in need. A very outgoing and talkative person, Georgia never met a stranger. She was a natural caretaker and had taken care of her aunt, Lucille, until her passing.
Georgia was a member of First Free Will Baptist Church for 30 years and loved watching her soap operas, gardening, Christmas time, dancing and singing to music of all kinds. Her greatest joy, however, was her family and her grandchildren and the time she spent with them.
Those left to cherish and remember Georgia include her sons, James W. Estep Jr. and wife Debbie and James Jefferson Estep, all of Elizabethton; her grandchildren, Chris Estep, Casey (Michael) Waters and daughter Eleanor Waters, and Cassidy Estep, all of Elizabethton; and three brothers, William “Bud” Hambrick and R.L. Hambrick (Teresa), all of Elizabethton, and Elwood Hambrick (Linda) of North Carolina. Several nieces and nephews also survive.
The family will receive friends from 1 until 3 p.m. Sunday, February 19, in the Chapel of Tetrick Funeral Home of Elizabethton. A private graveside service will be conducted at a later time. The family would like to especially thank the nursing staff at Hillview Health and Rehab Center for taking such wonderful care of Georgia. Words of comfort can be sent to the Shade family through our website,
Tetrick Funeral Home-Riverside Chapel, 211 North Riverside, Elizabethton, TN 37643 (423) 542-2232, is honored to serve the family of Georgia M. Shade.
