O how i loved Geneva, she will be missed by so many. My deepest sympathy for her family and friends. Paula
Geneva was such a good person; she always had a smile and would do what needed to be done to get the work finished. I really enjoyed working with her and keeping up with her after retirement, she made it to a few of the St. Paul get-togethers with Sheila. She will be dearly missed by all who knew her and her family will need prayer during this time.Annette Rickard,
