Deleda Drinnon McGaha, age 80, passed away peacefully at home surrounded by her family, on Monday, September 14, 2020.

She was the daughter of the late William Madison Drinnon and Wellis Smith Drinnon of Franklin, North Carolina. She attended Greenville General Hospital School of Nursing, graduating in 1961. She worked for many years as a registered nurse at St. Francis Hospital in Greenville, South Carolina, until her retirement about 18 years ago. She moved to Georgia to be near her three children, Kathy, Stephen, and Mandy, living the last four years in Athens, Georgia. She was a member of Trinity Lutheran Church in Athens. She was predeceased by her parents and brothers, J.D. and Ray Drinnon. She is survived by her younger brother, Bill, and her three children. She loved listening to bluegrass music, gardening, and watching birds from her screened porch, but her greatest joys were her three children and her four “granddogs.”

A memorial service will be held outside at Burningtown Baptist Church on Friday, September 18, 2020, at 1 p.m. Due to COVID concerns, no visitation will be held. A private burial will follow the memorial service.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Trinity Lutheran Church, 2535 Jefferson Road, Athens, Georgia. 30607.

Macon Funeral Home is handling the local arrangements.
