Retired country singer and rockabilly music influencer, Georgia Georgie Ann Davis Bobbitt, passed away peacefully in her home on February 16, 2022 surrounded by her family and loved ones; she was 92 years old.
Georgie's eventful life was highlighted with a unique career singing with The Davis Sisters Duo alongside Skeeter Davis (hits such as I Forgot More Than You'll Ever Know, Rock-a-Bye Boogie and Fiddle Diddle Boogie) who were credited influencers of Bob Dylan, The Everly Brothers and Paul Simon. Signed with RCA Records in 1953, they recorded albums with the talented Chet Atkins backing them up on guitar. In addition to their traveling shows, they continued on to Nashville, TN where they became members and performers at the Grand Ole Opry.
Georgie's desire to be closer to her family led her back home where she continued employment as a secretary at CL Zimmerman, a real estate agent and mother/homemaker. She married her husband, Larry Jean Bobbitt, in 1949 and was the longtime matriarch to a family who adored her. Georgie served the Lord by teaching Sunday School, acting as the Junior Choir Director and singing in the choir at Oak Ridge Baptist Church.
She earned her high school diploma from Dixie Heights and resided at her home in Edgewood, KY for over 45 years. She always had a smile on her face and a song in her heart. In her later years, she enjoyed reminiscing about her times performing around the country with music legends such as Andy Griffith, The Carter Sisters and Elvis Presley and The Jordanaires in the 50s. Additionally, she enjoyed traveling to see her family in Texas and Oklahoma, frequenting Texas Road House as a VIP and going weekly to Sids Red Barn with Reyn.
Georgie is preceded in death by her sister, Betty Jack Davis (1953), her mother Ollie Mae Gregory Davis (1987), her husband of 62 years, Larry Bobbitt (2011) and her father John Tipp Davis (2011). She is survived by her two daughters, Trena Ann Bobbitt Caldwell (Barry) and Lauren Elizabeth Bobbitt Niedringhaus (Mark); her five grandchildren, Kamryn Caldwell, Barry Caldwell, Jr. (Amber), Faryn Atchison (Tyler), Brendyn Melugin (Whitney) and Kiley Niedringhaus; three great-grandchildren Cody Dodrill, Zaeley Atchison and Loxley Atchison, and her friend and companion, Reynolds Flynn.
