Geneva was a loving wife and caring mother and grandmother. She was really proud of her family, and enjoyed cooking for them during family events. She also loved gardening, quilting, dancing, playing the violin and mandolin. She and her sister, Juanita, belonged to the Old Time Fiddlers Club, where she sang with her sister and played violin during the jam sessions.
