Aunt Geneva enjoyed life and loved her family--her sweet smile, love and kindness touched the souls of all who knew her. When someone came to her house, they didn't leave without being fed and fed well! In my youth, Aunt Geneva got up at 2 am and cooked Uncle Frank breakfast before he left on hunting trips. I remember thinking "She really loves him a lot to get up that early and cook a full breakfast!"
I can not remember ever seeing Aunt Geneva without a smile on her face and a twinkle in her eyes.
The service today was splendid and honored Geneva Wallace Jones in a way I am certain she would be proud of...plus, the parlor was packed with loved ones and life-long friends there to see Aunt Geneva one last time. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to see her one last time. Seeing all the visitors supporting her children and grandchildren in their moment of loss was heart warming.
Aunt Geneva Wallace, one of God's truly good children, is in Heaven now watching down on Judy, Connie and Jackie and all of her grandchildren. My heart breaks at their great loss. Aunt Geneva Wallace Jones will be missed by all who knew her. Respectfully, Jamie Diane "Dot" Latch

I used to work at Benjamin’s Grocery. Jerry gave Ms Geneva his overripe bananas. She always made banana bread and brought some to the store. It was delicious
