Georgina and I went out together in the late 80s/early 90s and lived together in Australia. I hadn't seen Georgina for 25 years but I often thought of her. A beautiful person to know: intelligent, eccentric, individual, unpredictable, kind and passionate. My abiding image of George is of her laughing uncontrollably - something that happened most days.

My heart-felt condolences to her family and friends

I knew Georgina from afar when we were at university, but I thought she was way too cool and pretty to be my friend! It turns out I was wrong. A couple of years later our paths crossed again when we found ourselves not only teaching at the same school, but living in the same road in Twickenham. Surely we had to become friends now... And we did. We travelled to India together. We shared the trials and tribulations of being twenty-something. There was nothing we couldn’t tell each other and that never changed - even when life became so difficult for Georgina. Each time we spoke Georgina treated me to her inimitable blend of kindness, fun and mischief. But she was always at her most animated when talking about Stanley, Phoebe and Martha, whom she utterly adored.

I think of Georgina every autumn when the weather changes and the Halloween decorations appear in the shops. She gave the best Halloween parties - no one decorated their house with as much enthusiasm. I'll be lighting a suitably spooky candle in the window each year for you Georgina.

Georgina was almost the first person I met at university, I was striding along in my long black coat carrying a briefcase and George was on her bike, wearing lace gloves and a Victorian style floaty dress - we hit it off immediately! George recounted that story often and we always laughed! George was a warm, witty and kind person, she would always try and help - she put together an amazingly inventive collection of reading resources for one of my children and gave me inventive ideas to try and they really helped . Her sense of humour, directness and easy laugh was trademark George. Her recollections of our university days and beyond made for comfortable conversations, every time she called, we just picked up where we left off, I will really miss her. George's joy was her children, she was so proud of them. Stanley, Phoebe, Martha, Jonny and family, you are in my thoughts. Much love, Vanessa xox

George was a mischievous, fun, hugely honest and beautiful friend. We shared A level classes and the summer after we went fruit picking in Kent. We shared a tiny tent and survived on a diet of Marathon bars and bananas to make the most of our meagre earnings. Time spent with George was never boring, we had such a lot of fun. She had an amazing memory for the things that tickled her and still took huge joy in recounting these even when she was poorly. George was a one off.
My deepest sympathies to Stanley, Phoebe, Martha and Jonny and her family.
