Georgia was born on October 31, 1963, a daughter to Janet Darlene Manuel and Richard Dean Clutter.
Surviving is her son, Kenneth Richard Kilman of Bloomington; daughter, Hannah Marie (Anthony) Williams of Bloomington; goddaughter, Erica Jean Pamson of Morton; father, Richard Dean Clutter of Assumption; brothers, Monte Dean (Kathy) Clutter of Moweaqua and Travis Dion (Paula) Clutter of Decatur; and niece, Nicole Clutter of Decatur.
She was preceded in death by her mother, Janet.
Georgia was born on Halloween and enjoyed making trick-or-treaters sing her "Happy Birthday" before giving them candy. Much of her professional life was spent in the banking industry where she worked her way from secretary to assistant branch manager and loan processor. While working for South Side Bank in Peoria she obtained her Certificate in Banking and Finance at Illinois Central College. 2013 was a big year for Georgia and her children, as they all graduated: Georgia receiving her Associates degree from Illinois Central College, Kenneth receiving his Bachelors degree from Illinois State University, and Hannah completing cosmetology training at Tricoci University. Perhaps her proudest moment was the marriage of her daughter Hannah in October of 2014. In August 2018, Georgia was baptized at Vale Church having made the decision to claim Jesus as her Lord and Savior.
Many words have been used to describe Georgia. A few examples include: loving, unique, funny, strong, special, faithful, cartoony, hardworking, protective, silly, and modest. Most of all, she was a devoted mother who lived for her children. Whether they were campouts, concerts, sports events, church functions, football games (Hannah performed at halftime), weddings, or hard times, Georgia was there for important events in the lives of her son and daughter. During her third and final fight with breast cancer, Georgia's children were able to return the favor, partnering together in making her final days comfortable. Georgia left her mark on the hearts of all who knew her and will be truly missed.
