She found joy in sharing her faith with young minds and guiding them on their spiritual journey. Geneva's dedication to teaching extended beyond the classroom; she was always there to listen and offer guidance to those who sought her counsel.

Moreover, cooking was another passion of Geneva's. She delighted in preparing delicious meals for her loved ones and creating lasting memories around the dinner table.

Geneva was preceded in death by her loving husband, Earl Houghton, parents Thelmer (Earl) J and Evelyn May, as well as her brother J.B. May and sister Louise Stewart.

Geneva Georgia Houghton will be remembered as a caring soul, a devoted teacher, and a talented cook. Her legacy of compassion, love, and generosity will live on in the hearts of all those fortunate enough to have known her. May she rest in eternal peace.
