Mrs. Geneva M. Travis, 92, a long time resident of Buncombe Co., died Thursday, June 30, 2011, after a short bout with pneumonia. She, along with her late husband Clyde H. Travis, managed Pisgah View Memorial Park for the past 60 years. In the course of those decades, she was able to be a source of comfort to many who had lost loved ones, and would want her friends and family to comfort each other in this time of loss. She was a dear friend to many, and will be greatly missed. She is survived by a son, Carl and wife Jane, daughter-in-law Penny, wife of deceased son Michael, three grandchildren, Kim Quarterman, Kyle Travis, Shelby Pohlman, and eight great-grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at the Chapel at Pisgah View Memorial Park on Saturday at 1:00 p.m., with entombment to follow in the mausoleum. Her family will greet friends immediately following the service.

Memories Timeline


  1. Super Lady, many, many great memories (we practically grew up together) May the good Lord help you adjust to her absence. Love you…Nephew Carson……

  2. I was very sadden when I read the
    paper today about Geneva M Travis passing.
    Used to sometimes stop by Pisgah View every so often and talk with her. She and Clyde (who I did not know) were friends with my 1st cousin Lucy Allison.
    She is certainly in a better place.
    You have my deepest sympathy.

  6. So sorry for your loss. We will greatly miss Great Aunt Geneva and our visits and meals together. She was a beautiful lady.

  7. Carl & family and Penny & Shelly,
    You are all in my prayers at this time and for the days ahead. I can honestly say that I know how you feel as we recently lost Mama. Geneva called and we had a good conversation and going over our memories of the past 51 years. We met them in 1960 and was neighbors to Mama ever since (Daddy only until July 1972). You can know that she, Clyde and Michael are having a very happy reunion. We are in Wilmington this week at our son’s and I’m not sure that we’ll be home in time for the service. If not, please know that I would be there if I were in town. Penny – I would love to hear from you – send me an email sometime please ( May God be with each of you and rejoice in the happy memories of your lives with her. Diane Smith Bell & family and my brother, Jim Smith

  8. I am in Heaven now, a place that I have longed to see. I have walked the streets of gold and my friends and family I have seen…I have even seen people I did not know,but they knew me….now its the face of my Lord that I am so excited to see.
    I am no longer sick and I can run…and the angels oh how they can sing…Its really grand to be here in my new home in Glory.
    I will see you soon, so do not despair…I love you my family and friends and I can not wait till I see you here…

  9. Geneva, a true Mother of the faith. Full of God, full of the Spirit. She most surely will be missed. As Paul said in the scriptures, 2Ti 4:7 I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith:
    2Ti 4:8 Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love his appearing. Love you Geneva.

  10. A dear friend and sister in the faith. She will be missed. She was an inspiration to all who knew her. A true Mother of the faith.

  11. My “Second Mother”… Geneva was genuine — a true soldier of the cross… My parents often left me with her when my parents were out of town doing church work… Michael will ALWAYS be my very best friend… I know there is JOY in heaven…
