Geneva was a 1953 graduate of Doddridge County High School and went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Penn State University. She retired as a secretary for the United States government having spent many years working at the Pentagon.

Geneva lived life to the fullest. With Charles being a Lt. Colonel in the Army, they travelled and lived all over Europe.
