Rev. George's Story

Text size

Rev. George G. O'Berry, 68, departed his earthly body, bound for Glory, on Sunday, July 23, 2017. He was a member of Dry Creek Baptist Church, where he recently served as pastor until declining health forced his retirement earlier this year. Ordained in 1982, he also served as pastor of other churches in the Baptist affiliation. George was a member of the Cassia Lodge and various hunting clubs. An avid hunter and fisherman, he leaves behind the greatest catch of his life, his wife of 47 years, Karleen Stalvey O'Berry. George was preceded in death by his parents, Lonnie and Letha Harrell O'Berry, and his in-laws, Rev. Jesse and Elaine Stalvey. Survivors, in addition to his wife, are his daughter and son-in-law, Shannon O. and Kylan Danforth; three grandchildren, Allie Grace, Kylie and Kase Danforth, all of Nashville, GA; his sister and brother-in-law, Janice O. and Jim Lee of St. Simons Island, GA; three sisters-in-law and one brother-in-law, Lynn S. Maine of Valdosta, GA, Vivian S. and Johnny Smith, and Jamie S. Douglas, all of Homerville, GA; and several nieces and nephews.
Funeral services will be held at the First Baptist Church of Homerville on Wednesday, July 26, 2017 at 11:00 am, with interment in the Pine Forest Cemetery. Visitation with the family will be at Roundtree Funeral Home in Homerville on Tuesday, July 25, from 6:00 until 8:00 pm.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make donations to The Hospice Foundation c/o Halcyon Hospice, 101 Northside Drive, Bldg E, Valdosta, GA 31602.
His final message to all can be found in II Corinthians 13:11, "Finally, brethren, farewell. Be perfect, be of good comfort, be of one mind, live in peace; and the God of love and peace shall be with you."
