Geneva and Gayle have been a part of my life as long as I can remember. We lived one street apart, and the John Roberts family and the Gayle Scott family were also active members of the First Church of the Nazarene as well as being neighbors. Both Gayle and a Geneva influenced my life through their work in Vacation Bible School, Sunday School, church, and as family friends. Their home was always open for our teen group. They planned fun, silly things for us to do like taffy pulls and bubble gum blowing contests, and they always loved and supported us. They made everyone feel loved . This loving friendship has lasted through the years. When Geneva and I visited in these later years, we loved talking about those good old days and the dear friends from the church. After my dad died, Geneva was supportive of my mother. They looked forward to their ladies night game night of “Tell” and “SkipBo.” She was such a loving friend, The last time I talked to Geneva by phone ( I couldn’t visit because of coronavirus) she told me she had found something I had written to her many years ago. Evidently I had told her we could have our mansions in heaven next to each other. She asked if I still planned on that. I think this was her subtle way of making sure I was still on the right path. Geneva was a kind, gentle soul. She played a large role in my life. I loved her and will miss her so much!

I have very fond memories of Geneva while growing up as a teenager in Seymour. She and Gayle truly loved our group of teens at church. The "Welcome" sign was always up at their home. About three years ago six of us (former teenagers) were able to get together and had the opportunity to visit Geneva. She was still a spry lady of 92, smiling and laughing. I am so glad we were able to see her then and reminisce about old times. What an example of a godly, caring, giving woman she was. A life well lived.

We will miss Geneva!!! She and Gayle have been and still are "Giants of the Faith" to us. She was one of the few ladies who could match wits with just about anyone. She was talented, kind, generous and very loyal --- a great home maker, mother, grandmother and friend to all. She was also an excellent cook who would share anything and everything at a moments notice. I (Larry) remember on more than one occasion stopping by to see she and Gayle on a thinly veiled "pastoral visit". Following a few moments of small talk she would emerge from the kitchen with a bag full of cookies and say something like, "OK, let's get honest, I know why you're here!!! (She called me the "cookie monster"!) Always at church, always on the job. Always faithful. We will miss Geneva! We will be keeping the family in our hearts, our thoughts and our prayers!

Geneva was a treasured friend to all the members of the John Roberts family. I always enjoyed visiting her when I was in Seymour. Getting a hug from her was like getting one from my mom. She was one of the kindest ladies I have known. Hope Roberts West Bloomfield Hills Michigan

Aunt Geneva was the best! Her wit was unsurpassed by most. She loved her God with all her heart, The best way I can describe her was Jesus in a skirt!,

I loved Geneva. She loved God and her family so much and put them first in her life. I lived in the house be side her and Gayle for a couple of years. I would go over and visit and she always offer me to eat some of her wonderful food and of course I would. Geneva and Gayle Scott were the most kindest people I knew.
