Geneva L. Bowen

Geneva L. Bowen, 87, of Springdale, crossed the Jordan River into the loving arms of her Savior Monday, January 11, 2021 at Willard Walker Hospice in Fayetteville.  She was born April 3, 1933 in the Cove City community to Henry and Fannie (Mongold) Moses.

Geneva left her earthly body surrounded by her loved ones.  She was a sweet mother, grandmother, wife, and friend who loved the simple things in life.  She was a woman of God that listened and sang loudly her favorite southern gospel songs.  Even more than the simple joys, she loved her family and friends unconditionally.  Her love for her family was shown in all the food she made, cooked with extra love, long phone calls, and she never wanted to leave or end a conversation without telling you she loved you and giving a hug and kiss.  She lived a long life full or love, servitude, and gentleness, and will be greatly missed.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Eugene “Gene” Bowen; a grandson, Kevin Don Beaver; three brothers and four sisters.  She is survived by four children, Jerry Beaver and wife Janet, Ricky Steiner, Randy Beaver, Tammie McFerrin; one sister, Bonnie Tipton; five grandchildren, Sara Brimble, Sarah Miller, Tiffany Mayes, Joshua McFerrin, Makayla McFerrin; six great-grandchildren, Dylan Miller, Christopher Brimble, Lexi Miller, Victoria Hurst, Kaleb Beaver, Ashleigh Beaver; and a host of family and friends.

Funeral service will be 2 p.m. Friday, January 15, at Heritage Funeral Home Chapel with burial at Elm Springs Cemetery.  Visitation will be 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the funeral home.
