Geneva Ann Evans, resident of Ponca City since 1965, passed away peacefully on Sunday, October 26, 2008, at Westminster Village, surrounded by her family. She was 87.
Geneva was born on May 31, 1921, to Robert Henry Berrie and Leatha Ann (Johnston) Berrie, in Sentinel, Oklahoma. In 1940, soon after graduating from Dill City High School, she met Hubert Evans. They were married on November 17, 1945, in Cordell, Oklahoma, after he returned from World War II. They lived in seven states because of his job with Conoco Seismograph Crew. Geneva was blissfully domestic. Her favorite activities included spending time with family. She and her beloved Hubert enjoyed playing bingo, and the thrill of garage sales. She was the consummate seamstress, and had a passion for crochet. She excelled in frugality, and her creativity was unparalleled. She was a member of the Hartford Avenue Church of Christ. Geneva and Hubert were regular attendees of the annual Conoco Doodlebuggers Reunion at Lake Murray Lodge.
She is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Sue LaNata, husband, Art, and daughter, Kimberly Dawn and husband, Zac Blumer, daughter, Donna Kay Wilson, husband, Randy, and children, Latasha Estelle, Wyatt Evan and wife, Katie, and Carissa Elizabeth, all of Stillwater, Oklahoma.
She was preceded in death by her loving husband of over 61 years, her parents, and her brother, Truman. Her faith in God, an unswerving devotion to her family, an extraordinary ability to be organized and self-disciplined are only a part of the wonderful legacy she leaves. Geneva touched peoples lives with her sweetness, genteel manners, and gratefulness. She will be sorely missed. The service was held at 2 p.m., on Wednesday, October 29, 2008, at the Hartford Avenue Church of Christ, with Mr. Don Huddleston officiating.
Burial will follow at Sentinel Cemetery in Sentinel, Oklahoma,
at 3 p.m., on Thursday, October 30, 2008. Arrangements are under the direction
of Trout Funeral Home. Condolences can be e-mailed to funerals@troutfuneral
