Geneva was a wonderful lady. I can still she her in her skirts, always a tucked in blouse, and pumps. What a classey lady. She was a dear friend of my mother (Lillian) who lived across the hall from her, and my mother in law (Vivian) who lived down the hall. The three of them had some good times together. Since they both passed away, I have been keeping track of Geneva and considered her to be a very good friend of mine. She is now at peace.

Geneva was best friends with my Grandma from the time they were very young adults until my grandmothers death, so I have known her my entire life. She was always at Christmas gatherings and even often visiting or staying with my grandparents. I considered her not only as another grandma but as a special friend. She will be dearly missed.
I helped care for Geneva, She loved her skirts, pumps, and sweaters and one other thing COFFEE!!! I would help her do her hair in the morning with all those bobbi-pins and I enjoyed the time I was given with Geneva. She was so wonderful and sure to brighten alot of days for alot of people. I will miss her. I am so sorry for your loss and hope you find comfort in knowing what a truly wondeful woman she was and how many memories you must have of her. Her memory will live on in all who got a chance just to know Geneva.
I guess I have know Aunt Geneva for most of my life through the Endsley family. She was not really my aunt but that is what I have always know her by. I am sad she is gone but I am sure she is sitting on the knee of our God. Save me a place, Aunt Geneva!
