Georgina grew up on the family farm in Enderby, BC. After graduating from Enderby High School, she went on to be a waitress in the Vancouver area where she met and married Al Folz. They later moved with their four children to the San Fernando Valley area of California where they raised their family and Georgina continued to work as a waitress. While in California, she was active in her church and was known for her curiosity and desire to help other people.
