Obituary

"Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted" Matthew 5:4. Momma, Mawmaw, Aunt Gen, 82 passed peacefully, March 28th, 2022, in Carrollton, Texas surrounded by family and loved ones. She will forever be loved by her children, Linda (Steve) Goode of Rusk, Texas. Joe (Kathleen) Allen of Carrollton, Texas. John Wesley (Teresa) Allen, Carrollton, Texas. She was the beloved Mawmaw of thirteen grandchildren and twenty-one great-grandchildren. Along with a host of family members: Brothers, Sisters, brother in laws, sister in laws, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her parents Bell and Edgar Hugghins, loving husband Willie B. Free aka Pawpaw Bill, First husband, John Wesley Allen Sr., her daughter Brenda Sue Allen, her son John Wayne Allen, and her brothers George and Roy Lee Hugghins. All of whom greeted her at heavens gates. She was born the fifth of eight children on February 18th,1940 in the city of Alto, Texas to Bell (Knott) and Edgar Hugghins. In her younger years, she worked as a car hop at the local burger joint. She moved from Texas to Alabama with her first husband John. In the coming years when they returned to Texas she worked at American Desk in Temple.  She loved to drive and had a lead foot. Geneva met the love of her life, Bill at a country and western dance hall in Irving, Texas. She was there with one of her sisters and he with his nephew. Bill came over and began talking to her. Geneva fondly remembered that when he asked her to dance, she told him upfront, “I don’t dance very good” to which he replied, “that’s okay, I don’t dance at all!” Geneva said that after their night of sitting, talking, and dancing, Bill came over the next day. She asked him, “What are you doing?” he told her, “I came to see you!” From there, their love story began. They married April 10th, 1982, where they lived and loved for over 37 years together. Geneva had an adventurist side and traveled alongside Bill with their cocker spaniel, Festes when he was a truck driver for many years. They even moved to Florida to work on an Orange Grove.  Her hobbies included handcrafting key chains, crosswords, word finds, playing Gin Rummy, and watching western movies. In their later years, Geneva and Bill became adult foster care givers through Girling Healthcare for over 20 years. They bought their home with acreage where they lived in Alto, Texas. There they built a woodshop and enjoyed making birdhouses, other wood crafts and painting ceramics. With their health declining, they moved to Jacksonville and then to their final resting place of Carrollton, Texas. Geneva enjoyed arts and crafts, playing BINGO, Dominos and Rummikub. At the end of each day as Geneva and Bill were going to bed, they would express their love for each other. She will be remembered for her down-home cooking, candy for her grandkids, and her infamous homemade banana pudding. She loved her family and her animals.  You did not mess with either one. She loved unconditionally and was a kind, nurturing, soft hearted woman. "I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith" II Timothy 4:7
