Every one at Elderberry loved Geneva she will certainly be missed. She was into all the activities I think her favorite thing was churing butter. She and the Admistrator liked to tell everyone they were sisters.
It was a pleasure to have Geneva at Elderberry. I was close to her and have many wonderful memories of her, we often talked and shared stories and laughs. She often talked of her family and Ms. Burns. I will miss her. I came by the funeral home but was unable to meet any of her
family. I will always remember Geneva. If I can assist her family in any way, please contact me at the facility, 828-252-1790.
Warm Regards, Karen Cutshall, Administrator
