Obituary of Georgia L Poggi

Georgia L. Poggi peacefully left this earth for a heavenly reunion with her husband on 7/7/23. She began her life as a wild flower child in Uniontown, Pa. Along the way she met a Puerto Rican ex-gang member & former drug addict, Jorge Poggi, at a Bible school in Sunbury, PA. It was love at first sight for both of them & together they embarked on a ministry of salvation & began a legacy of love. Georgia was a caregiver her entire life, first as a registered nurse & later as a preacher’s wife. Jorge & Georgia founded Faith Assembly of God of Uniontown, which is still going strong today. The Lord led my father to leave Uniontown & brought us to Port Charlotte. After moving here in 1990, Georgia began healing hearts at Cardiac Rehab in Punta Gorda as a charge nurse. She also continued to save souls w/my father as they began ministering here in Port Charlotte. As a former addict, Georgia was active in many recovery groups. She helped direct the local chapter of the Intervention Project for Nurses, which provides support for nurses facing substance abuse disorders. She also attended Celebrate Recovery & NA meetings to pray & be a sponsor for those who were struggling with addiction. She also volunteered to serve dinner on Friday nights at the Homeless Coalition. She was very active in her church, Calvary Assembly of God & if the doors were open, you would find her there. Thanks to her amazing friend, Marcia Rose, she was able to attend the ladies prayer meetings on Tuesday’s at Calvary until her illness made it too difficult. Her light shined so bright while she was here & she leaves behind an emptiness that can never be filled, but she has walked into the arms of her Heavenly Father & is now at peace with her husband. She is missed greatly by her daughter Gloria Poggi & her son-in-law, Frank Diguadio. Her son & daughter in law, David & Lakesha Poggi & her four beautiful grandchildren. As well as her only & favorite brother & sister in law, Dan & Gerri Ternistky & her only & favorite, niece Danielle Ternitsky. In lieu of flowers, we ask that you share kindness & compassion as she did. Or if you prefer please make a donation to the Homeless Coalition of Charlotte County in her name.
