Geneva accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior in 1960 and her husband followed soon after. Together, they had a strong and fruitful ministry that saw many people give their heart to the Lord.
Geneva was a homemaker, helped Lee operate a number of stores, and was the faithful supporter of a strong ministry. Some of her hobbies included crocheting, knitting, needlepoint, puzzles and reading.
In her final years, Geneva attended the Guiding Light Church and the Lighthouse Church with her grandsons and their families.
Those that knew her, knew she was a very kind, gentle, and considerate person. She also looked for the good in every person and in every situation. She truly made her life count for Christ and was a great source of encouragement to her family. She was greatly loved and will be missed by many.

Throughout his life, Lee worked as a migrant worker, ranch hand, and owned and operated a number of variety and furniture stores. Trading was not only a source of business, but was a pleasure as well. He thoroughly enjoyed meeting and visiting with people.
While working in Colorado, Lee met Geneva. They married and eventually made their home in Stilwell.
Lee accepted Christ as his Lord and Savior in 1960 and began preaching the following year. His ministry was both through music and preaching the Word. His first sermon was at the Stilwell Nursing Home. With Geneva’s faithful support, Lee pastured the Honey Hill Church, South Greasy Church and Victory Temple. Along with pasturing, Lee also evangelized and preached at many of local churches and throughout the area. When called upon to preach, Lee always had the simple message of Christ’s love. This message remained strong for the forty-four years of Lee’s ministry. In his final years, Lee attended Guiding Light Church and the Lighthouse in Stilwell along with his grandsons and their families.
