Geneva Scott

March 22, 1930 — November 25, 2018

Geneva L. Scott, 88, of Goodfield, IL was called home to Heaven by her Lord Jesus Christ on Sunday, November 25, 2018 at her residence.

She was born on March 22, 1930 in Lawrence County, TN to Thomas Z. and Emma Thelma Sides Watson. She married Billie W. Scott, Jr. on December 24, 1947.

Surviving are one daughter, Brenda (Dave) Phillis of Goodfield, IL, two sons, Tom (Christa) Scott of Surprise, AZ, and Rick Scott of Security, CO, one brother Clyde (Ruby) Watson, Leoma, TN, four grandchildren, Heather (Josh) Deterding, Brad (fiancee Sammi Oleson) Scott, Levi Scott, and Harley Scott, four step-grandchildren, Jason (Eve) Malcolm, Matt Malcolm, Andrea (Gary) Fugitt, and Jill (Justin) Smith, one great-granddaughter, Addyson Deterding, and 9 step-great-grandchildren, Derek and Casey Malcolm, Corryne and Drew Bohlmann, Tucker and Marley Smith, and Domanic, Cierra, and Braden Fugitt, many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband, her parents, one infant grandson, two sisters, and one brother.

Geneva worked for Admiral for three years. Then she worked 37 1/2 years for Nestle, retiring in 1995. She was a member of the Good Hope Primitive Baptist Church in Leoma, TN.

She enjoyed sewing, gardening, listening to gospel music, reading her Bible, collecting chickens/roosters, dolls, and baskets. Her fondest pastime was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

She loved her family dearly. She was a devoted wife for almost 68 years, a great homemaker and wonderful cook. She was a faithful caregiver to her husband for nine years before his passing, and a loving mother, grandma, and great-grandma. We deeply miss her. Geneva's legacy of faith, hope, and love will live on through her family.
