Educator, politician Earleen Sizemore passes

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - A woman who served as a superintendent of Worth County schools, and as a state representative in the Georgia legislature died Wednesday in Sylvester.

Earleen Wilkerson Sizemore was 76, and died after a lengthy illness at Pruitt Health Sylvester.

She won four elections to the Ga. House from 1974 to 1988. She was also elected to a four-year term as Worth County superintendent in 1988.

In 2002, Sizemore was appointed by Gov. Roy Barnes to complete the remaining six months of Republican Bob Durden's term on the PSC, which became vacant when he died of cancer.

Her last foray into politics was in 2004 when she ran unsuccessfully for the House District 152 seat.

She was also an administrator of the Tifton campus of Moultrie Technical College.

Banks Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements, which have not yet been announced.
