Georgia Daughters was born June 11, 1935, in Custer, SD, to Homer and Margaret (Hovelshrud) Westover. She passed away September 6th, 2022, at Bennett County Hospital in Martin.

Georgia grew up in rural Martin and had 5 children: Rhonda (Martin) Robuck, Marty (Jim) Hoffner, Carla, Arlana Bettelyoun, and Blaine Brown.

For more than 30 years she remained with Frank Marshall, who was a stepfather to her children and grandpa to her grandchildren. 

When Frank’s health started declining, they shared a room together up until his passing. Georgia kept his wallet with his IDs with her at all times after his passing.

Georgia had many grandkids who say she was one of the most unique grandmas a person could have with the cussing, keeping you in line, and telling it like it is. 

They say she was never the Hallmark type of grandma, which they think was a good thing because those are dull. They were pleased she was an amazing cook. 

Georgia also had many great-grandkids, great-great grandkids, and even great-great-great-grandkids as well numerous nephews and nieces.

Georgia was a very hard worker who made food service into a career. After starting as a waitress at Tallys in Rapid City, SD, and at the Club Café and Vesta’s, both in Martin, she moved to the management side.

Georgia managed Markota Acres with her sister Jan, then decided to finally open her own restaurant.  She started Geo’s Steak House in Martin and ran it for around 20 years before selling. 

After the sale of her restaurant, Georgia volunteered and was part of the foster grandparent program with Martin Elementary school before finally retiring at nearly 80 years old.

Georgia is survived by her sister Jan Harris, her children, and their multiple generations.

She was preceded in death by her parents, her spouse Frank Marshall, her brothers Dean Westover and Terry Westover, and a favorite son-in-law-to-be Larry Bear Killer Sr.

Pallbearers are Terry D Nelson, Elbridge Ward, Rodney Coon, Grandsons Troy Smith ll, Richard Bettelyoun Jr, Braden Brown, Jordan High Horse, Arrow Curry, Shayne Curry, Gene Standing Bear Jr, and Virgil Clausen.

Honorary Pallbearers are all friends and relatives.
