Continuing a Legacy of Love and Community
Betty Fitzgerald was born in Winchester, Kentucky, in 1926 and began working in Atlanta in 1948 after graduating from Duke University. Davis Fitzgerald was born in Atlanta in 1922, graduated from Georgia Tech, and served in the Navy.
Upon returning to Atlanta, Davis took a job at Trust Company of Georgia and married Betty in 1950. The couple lived in Atlanta for the next 55 years. Davis continued working at the bank, now Truist.
They were a kind, humorous, thrifty couple who cared for Atlanta. Their estate, now the Betty and Davis Fitzgerald Foundation, is their gift back to their community.
