Obituary for Geneva Rogers Turner

Geneva Rogers  Turner
Geneva Rogers Turner, daughter of the late Joseph Godwin and Evelyn Rogers Snead, was born on September 15, 1929 in Cashville, Virginia. She transitioned from her earthly dwelling on Monday, April 17, 2018 at Shore Health & Rehab Center. Geneva was preceded in death by all eleven siblings and one son, Solomon Rogers. She entered into holy matrimony to George “Syke” Turner, who also preceded her in death.

“Aunt G,” as she was affectionately known by intimate family and friends, began her scholastic studies at Old Savageville School, but had to drop out of school after completing the third grade. At this young age, she began working in the farming industry and did so until her health would no longer permit. There was no one who could work the field like her. From potatoes to string beans to strawberries, “G” was it. She would get there early in the morning and work late in the evening. If you wanted the job done “G” was the one to call and she could out work anyone...young or old. She may not have had a lot of formal education, but she had plenty of common sense. She cut grass, chopped wood, cleaned houses, washed windows, any domestic chore, she did it and did it well. Everybody knew her as the woman who walked up and down Savageville Road….and she moved QUICKLY!!!! You look for her in one place and she would be somewhere else.

Geneva was an Eastern Star. She was a faithful member of Gaskins Chapel AME Church and worked hard in and around the church. Whenever there was a need, great or small, Geneva was the one they called on and she did it without complaining. Often times overlooked and many times pushed aside, yet Geneva served with a smile on her face and a humble, submissive “yes” in her heart. She served on the Stewardess Board until her health declined and loved to cook and work in the kitchen. When the church would feed their guest during special services you could count on Geneva to clean the chicken or whatever else was needed, so that the meals could be prepared. She would put on her apron and serve wherever she was needed and did so with joy, because she loved her church and her church family. She was also a dedicated member of the Daughters Auxiliary. Back in her early years, Geneva was known for cooking yeast rolls and turnip greens fresh out the field. She loved RC soda and when we could no longer find RC she wanted Coca Cola.

Geneva was a loving woman with a warm heart. She would do anything for anybody. We were careful not to push her buttons and when we did she let us “have it.” Over these last five years, when she did not agree with things said or done, she would hold her head and say, “Lordy, Lordy, Lordy.”

Geneva leaves to cherish fond memories: one son, James Rogers of Millville, NJ; nine grandchildren, Acmadia, Elijah, Rashyn, Solomon Lee, Tanaya, Me’lissa, Selina, Kelsey and Brianna; fourteen great-grandchildren; a great-niece, who was also her committed caregiver, Apostle Joanna “Binky” Watson of Parksley, VA; a special niece and nephew, Joanne “Bunny” Williams and Sherman Williams, both of Melfa, VA; and a host of nieces, nephews, family and friends.
