Georgia Sells Pryor

Georgia Sells Pryor, 81, of East Ridge died Monday, November 9, 2015 at her beloved Senior Saints Home. The long journey with Alzheimer’s ended with a glorious trip to heaven.

Throughout the years, mom brought joy to so many others with her infectious smile. She loved music and always clapped her hands to every song she heard. Even at the end of her battle with breast cancer and Alzheimer’s, she still managed a smile.

Mrs. Pryor was of the Baptist Faith. She was preceded in death by her husband, Clyde Pryor; her parents Hershel and Nana Catron Sells; and brothers, Howard Sells and Grady Sells.

Survivors include her children, Karen (David) Gibson and Tim Pryor, all of Ringgold, Georgia, and Danny Pryor of Chattanooga; grandchildren, Shellie Gibson and Quinton Gibson of Chattanooga; sisters, Betty (Jay) Rigney of Dunlap and Barbara Denney of Byrdstown; and several nieces and nephews.

Sincere and special thanks to Senior Saints staff, especially Josephine; she was mom’s angel on earth. Special thanks also to the nurses and staff of Avalon Hospice and Dr. Abdul Eletr.

Funeral services were held Wednesday, November 11 at the East Chapel of Chattanooga Funeral Home with Reverend Bill Gardner and Shellie Gibson officiating. Burial was in Sequatchie Memorial Gardens in Dunlap.

In lieu of flowers, please feel free to make donations to the Alzheimer’s Association Mid-South Chapter, 7625 Hamilton Park Dr. #6, Chattanooga, TN 37421.
