Geneva lived in Lathrop since 1954. She loved reading, canning, and exploring family history. She loved reminiscing over old family letters and photos. She had a gift of writing poetry about her family, friends and happy times. She had an amazing sense of humor; always laughing and brightening the room with her beautiful smile. Geneva constantly gave out hugs and kisses to everyone that entered the room. Her happiness always revolved around family visits from her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved her family legacy and always bragged about her great-great grandbabies. Her zest for life and positive outlook will always be remembered by her loved ones. She will be deeply missed.
