The Lord called Georgiana Cecelia Gray, 74, home on June 26, 2020 at Medstar Georgetown University Hospital. Georgiana was the wife of John Gray. The two shared fifty-four wonderful years of marriage together.

Georgiana was born on November 25, 1945 at St Mary's Hospital in Leonardtown, MD to her loving parents, James Foley Holt and Helen Marie Holt (Rustin). Georgiana attended St. Joseph's Colored School and graduated from Cardinal Gibbons High School. Georgiana was a dedicated employee as a Nurse's Aide at St. Mary's Hospital and the ARC Group Home. Georgiana also worked for Mini Tech on the assembly crew and for William's Packing Goods as a Cashier and Stock Clerk. Georgiana was an avid member of St. Joseph's Catholic Church and attended Mass every Sunday. Georgiana enjoyed volunteering at the annual church dinner and was a member of The Ladies Sodality. In addition, Georgiana was an active member of the St. Joseph's Community Center. Georgiana's favorite pastimes consisted of spending time with family, dancing, playing BINGO with her daughter and brother, and bus trips to the casino. You would find Georgiana sitting in her favorite spot on the couch watching the Game Show Network or CNN News. Georgiana loved to watch football and basketball; favorite teams were the Washington Redskins and the Washington Wizards.

Georgiana went by many nicknames that included, Baby Sis, Aunt Babe, Nana, Mama Gray, and Sister. She enjoyed her grandbabies that were the highlight of her day, whose nicknames were Baby Cakes and Little Man. Georgiana will be remembered for her strong faith, her love of family and friends, and her smooth dance moves.

Georgiana is survived by her husband John Gray, Daughter Deborah D. Gray (Sam), Sons Wayne M. Gray, John M. Gray (Sherita), two grandsons Christopher A.

I extend my sincere condolences to Georgiana Gray's immediate family and the entire Holt family. I'm sure, at this time, hearts are heavy and sad. However, remember that God gave each of you the opportunity to share in the love that bubbled over from Georgiana's presence in her earthly home. Your hearts are filled with fond memories that are forever with you. Therefore, cry, but, let not your hearts be troubled because Georgiana has moved to her heavenly home. May God continually bless and keep each of you with His countenance forever shining upon each of you. Yours In Christ.

To the Gray and Holt Families,
I will miss seeing Georgiana in church on Sundays. For 6 years Georgiana and I volunteered to do hot lunch duty together at MCSS. We laughed a lot and one day Georgiana sang the Ave Maria and I will never forget that. Fond memories. I am sorry I will not be able to attend Georgiana's mass due to the Corona virus. Keeping Georgiana and family in my prayers.
Love, Patty
