Obituary for Geneva Clements

Print
Geneva was born November 2, 1932 in Grand Saline. She passed away, January 12, 2019 at her home in Springtown, surround by those that love her. Geneva spent her early years in Van. Geneva’s mother and father moved to Dallas during the Second World War.

She met the love of her life, W.D. Walls, when she was a teenager. Geneva was at the “picture show” with a girlfriend and he started pulling their hair instead of watching the movie. Shortly thereafter, they eloped to Rockwall and they came back to Dallas as man and wife, to stay with W.D.’s sister, Opal.

W.D. had grown up in poverty and he was a man looking to find his fortune. He moved his young family to California twice, and once to Portland, Oregon in the late 40s and early 50s. They returned each time to Dallas. W.D., didn’t find his pot of gold, or maybe he was just working on it, and Geneva found out that she didn’t like earthquakes in California, or all the rain in Portland.

Geneva  came to know Jesus in the last few months of her life. Geneva was a strong and hardworking woman.   When she was a young  girl, she saw her family home burned to the ground.   She gave her husband five sons and one daughter. She endured the breakup of her mother and father when she was a teenager. She endured the tragedy of the sudden death of her two younger brothers in a motorcycle wreck. She endured the loss of her husband in a car accident. She endured the early death of three of her sons. She outlived two more husbands after W.D. tragically died in a car accident. When she got so old that she could endure no more, she held onto life valiantly from her hospital bed in her Springtown home of 56 years.  She died a saved sinner and she rests in the protection of Almighty God.  She will be interred beside W.D.

She is preceded in death by her mother,  Vermie  Merendino,  her father, Walter T. Bowles, her husband, W.D. Walls, sons Terry Walls, Marvin Walls, and W.D. Walls, Jr.

She is survived by brother Earl Bowles, sister Linda Lynch, son Robert and Betsy Walls, son Trevor Walls,  daughter  Janet Blevins, granddaughter Caressa and Clint Holland, grandson Robert Walls, Jr., nephew Terry Walls Jr., nephew Eric Walls,  and several other grandchildren and great grandchildren.
