Geneva Craft

Geneva Craft, 92, of Mansfield, went home to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Thursday, May 15, 2014.

Geneva was born in Grayson, KY on May 24, 1921 to Russell and Emmie Belle Hall. She was a lifelong homemaker and enjoyed spending time with her family, playing with her great-grandkids, attending church, and going to family cookouts. Her home cooked meals were everyone’s favorite and her gentle touch will never be forgotten.
