Georgia Tucker came to Oakdale to find the mother who abandoned her when she was born. The first person she met upon arriving was Eddie Silva who helped her in her search. It turned out that Georgia's mother was Samantha Markham Anderson, the sister of the very rich Lucinda Walsh. Georgia was welcomed into the Walsh family with open arms, but, unfortunately, her mother disappeared soon after, leaving Georgia to believe that her mother abandoned her a second time. Of great comfort during this period was her best friend, Eddie Silva. Not only did he help her with her family problems, but he also helped her when she was admitted to the hospital with heart problems. Soon, the two fell in love. However, that all changed when Eddie learned that she kept the identity of his father (Alec Wallace) from him.
Georgia was desperate to get Eddie to forgive her for keeping his father's identity a secret, and confronted Alec about his plans to leave town with Eddie. Upon arriving at Alec's room, she saw Margo Hughes unconscious, and, certain that Alec killed her, Georgia started to call 911. Alec confronted her, though and pulled a gun. There was a struggle and Alec was killed. Georgia panicked and buried all evidence of her being in the room and kept silent. After Margo was convicted of the crime, Georgia went to Alec's cabin to kill herself. Luckily, Eddie found her and offered to leave town with her. However, Georgia decided to do the right thing and turned herself into the police. Alec's death was ruled an accident and Georgia and Eddie left for parts unknown after a simple wedding ceremony arranged by Margo and the extended Hughes family.
