VIRGINIA BEACH – Georgia Shirley, 94, was born in Norfolk County to the late Dixie and Jennie Sawyer Neal. Georgia was a homemaker, who loved spending time with and caring for her family. She was also a member of the Berkley Lodge #52 Order of the Eastern Star for 50 plus years. In her younger days, she enjoyed square dancing, traveling to Florida during the colder months, and just being outdoors in the sun. Georgia was predeceased by her beloved husband, Norwood “Mike” Shirley, four brothers and one sister. 

 Left to cherish her memory are her daughters, Peggy S. Foster and her husband Rodney of Chesapeake and Debra Leahey of Virginia Beach; four grandchildren, three great-grandchildren and a host of other family and friends. In addition, we would like to especially thank the staff of Commonwealth Senior Living at Cedar Manor for their exceptional care while she was with them. 

 The family will receive friends on Saturday, from 6:00 p.m. until 7:30 p.m. at Altmeyer Funeral Home Chesapeake. A graveside service will be held on Sunday at 2:00 p.m. at Blackwater Baptist Church Cemetery with Rev. Lynn Hardaway officiating. Express condolences to the family at

Many good memories of her and Mike from my youth. I remember how pretty she was definitely a red and white checkered square dancing dress. Love to all and my thoughts and prayers are with the family.

I have so many wonderful memories from my youth of your mom. My senior year would have been much different if not for her. Will keep you in my thoughts and prayers as you go through this difficult time.
