Geneva was a sweet, kind lady. She was very much loved by her aunt, Rena Mueller. We are sad to hear of her passing, but we know she is with our Savior and no longer in a suffering world. Our prayers are with all of her children, grandchildren, and all who loved her. Richard and Carolyn Mueller
We buried our mom today, it was a beautiful service the songs the memories the smiles of her sweet loving self ❤ I'm missing my mom but I know she is in no more pain and with grandma and grandpa ❤
Heaven gained an Angel! I called Ms. Geneva “Mama.” The first time I met her she had the most beautiful smile and we instantly became friends. She was so caring and kind and I had lost my own mother months before. I looked forward to seeing mom and Alice at the Center. Mama loved to hear us sing. She will be missed by all. I know that she was a blessing in my life. She is with her Lord and Savior and I know we will see each other again. Thank you Lord for allowing me to know Ms. Geneva! Debbie Browning
So sorry for your loss..you are all in prayer
We really enjoyed visiting with your mom, stories about horseback riding and stories about enjoying music special moments with her, we will certainly miss her
I'll miss our talks RIP Geneva
Ms. Geneva was a wonderful lady. I got the pleasure of caring for her at night the last few weeks of her life. I loved every moment spent with her. She was full of stories and laughs. She will be missed terribly here at work. I looked forward to going to her room each night and having a laugh or two. ❤️❤️❤️ Rest High on that Mountain beautiful!
This is my mom whom I miss so much 😢 She was a beautiful woman inside and out and will be truly missed but I know she's in heaven now without pain and laughing and running around and playing with her babies buddy and cinnamon Have fun Mom you deserve it! I love you forever and ever ❤
