The family of Geneva Cook wants to say a special “Thank You” to Alice Walker who took care of Mom during the day for the past six weeks.  We could not have made it through this trying time without this person who adored our Mother and took excellent care of her.  We love you Alice Walker.

Funeral services will be 2:00 P.M. Monday, June 1, 2015 at Beard’s Funeral Chapel with Reverend Lester Shadrick officiating.  Interment will follow in Baptist Ford Cemetery under the direction of Beard’s Chapel.

    I think some of her best times were at Kingston school. She left Kingston in her twenties but it was always her home. Sometimes I thought I knew the kids she went to school with as well as she did because she talked about them so much. GO JACKETS!!
