Geneva was a great lady. She was my 4th grade teacher, and one of my favorites. I'm so glad she was in my life, and that my kids got to know her. She was so kind to us all. So sorry for your loss, she will be dearly missed.

Sending prayers of comfort to the family of Geneva. She blessed so many children with her love of teaching. My children were some of the fortunate ones at Jennie Wilson school who were influenced by her. Thank you from all of the many students whose lives you touched.
