Geneva Lane
Geneva LaneCrossGeneva Lane, 75 of Richwood, died Friday afternoon, October 7, 2016 at the Riverside Methodist Hospital following a short illness.

She was born July 2, 1941 in Marion to the late Elizabeth (Matteson) Sandy and Denver Sandy.

Geneva was married to Vernon D. Lane on June 30, 1960 and he died September 15, 2015. She was also predeceased by three brothers, James and Melvin Sandy and Justus Fish.

Geneva was a 1959 graduate of the LaRue High School, a devoted homemaker and a longtime member of the Union Baptist Church. She very much enjoyed going out to eat in Richwood.

Throughout her entire life, family was her top priority; she always put her family’s needs before her own. Geneva's four grandchildren, Ashleigh and Zachary Sherman and Caleb and Kelsey Bosh were the true lights of her life.

Surviving are her two loving daughters, Robin (Christopher) Sherman, Dublin and Lori Bosh, Richwood; her grandchildren; two sisters, Susan Shifflet, Marion and Betty Jo (Paul) Shoup, Upper Sandusky; sisters-in-law, Twila Mulligan, Marysville; Becky Felty, LaRue; Deb Tabor, Bucyrus and many nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be held Saturday, October 15, 2016 at 11:00 AM at the Union Baptist Church with Pastor Tim Peria officiating.  Burial will follow in Claibourne Cemetery.  Friends may call Friday from 5 to 7 PM at the Stofcheck-Ballinger Funeral Home in Richwood.

Kelsey, I am so sorry to hear about your grandma's passing. I enjoyed talking to her when she came out to the Dairy Queen. I am sure going to miss answering the phone next year and hearing her voice when she places her order. Prayers to your family.

We didn't know Geneva very long , but it sure seemed like we did.. She was always happy and loved to come to the kitchen and sit with us and eat and just laugh... She told us some very ornery stories that we will always remember...

She will be sadly missed by all of us..
R.I.P. our friend..

I was shocked and saddened to hear of Genevas death. She worked for mom and dad when they owned the laundromat and she was such a nice lady. When she would see me she would always stop to talk. She will be missed.
