Geneva G. Osbourn, the daughter of Ione and George Godfrey was born on October 15, 1934 in Sutton and died of this life on May 18, 2022 at the home of her daughter, Susan Walker, in Morgantown.
Geneva was an avid reader of her Bible and attended the River Apostolic Church in Morgantown, where she volunteered her time each Monday out of the goodness of her heart.
She was a wonderful mother, a loving grandmother and great-grandmother, a true friend and a wonderful aunt to all who knew her. She loved bowling and was in a league for many years, but family was of utmost importance to her.
Geneva was among a group of ladies who made quilts for nursing homes, gated homes, children’s hospitals, Ronald McDonald House and third world countries. Also, for anyone who just needed to know someone cared.
She was married to Claud “Skinny” Osbourn, who was the love of her life until his death in 1991.
She is survived by her daughters, Susan Walker, of Morgantown, and Geneva Ann Jones, of Columbus, Ohio; six grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; one brother, Olen Godfrey; and several nieces, nephews, great-nieces and nephews and great-great-nieces and nephews.
