July 30, 1925 - November 5, 2021
Geneva was born on July 30, 1925, in Groom, TX and passed on November 5, 2021 in Roswell, NM. She grew up in the Nara Visa, NM area and then attended NMSU until she met and married Jake McCarty in 1949. They had 5 children, Sharon, Malcom (Millie), Stanley (Becca), Linda (Jim) and Rodney (D’Shon) as well as numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Geneva McCarty enjoyed sewing for her family as well as for others who asked her to create outfits for them. Many proudly wore the wedding dresses, formal gowns, suits, and other garments that she tailored specially for them. Her sons might have not have enjoyed wearing their matching shirts as much as she enjoyed making them. She enjoyed crocheting, embroidering, canning and gardening. The results of her cooking and baking were a hit at any gathering. Geneva was active in the Baptist churches in the communities in which they lived throughout their lifetime. She taught Sunday School, was a member of the Women’s Missionary Union, and served in the church kitchen for most of her life. Membership in the Cattle Growers Association and Tabosa Belles continued until they moved away from the ranch they owned in southwestern NM for 40+ years. She and Jake moved to Peralta, NM to live with Sharon, their eldest daughter for 3 years. From there, they moved to PeachTree Retirement Community in Roswell, NM. Living near Malcom and Millie gave both Jake and Geneva the opportunity to spend the rest of their lives under their watchful care. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to the New Mexico Baptist Children’s Home in her memory. Her family has chosen to remember her together. There will be no public services. Please take a moment and share a kind thought or memory with Geneva’s family at www.andersonbethany.com. Geneva’s tribute was written in her honor by her family.
