Mrs. Geneva Favor Thomas, 79, of Albany, Georgia departed this life on Tuesday, November 17, 2020 at Phoebe Putney Memorial Hospital in Albany, Georgia. Graveside services will be held on Saturday, November 21, 2020 at 11:00 A.M. in the Roselawn Memory Garden, 2120 Martin Luther King Jr Dr, Albany, Georgia 31701.

On November 17, 2020 at approximately 9:00 a.m., God pulled a beautiful rose from his garden. Geneva Favors Thomas was the only child born to Howard and Eva Favors on July 27, 1941, who precedes her in death.

At an early age, Geneva gave her life to Christ and joined Cutliff Grove Baptist Church. During her marriage to Roosevelt Thomas, she changed her membership to Jordan Grove Missionary Baptist Church to be with her family. While attending Jordan Grove, she became a member of the Deaconess Board. She was also a member of the Pastor’s – Aide club, Daughters’ of Esther, the Kitchen Committee, and song in the choir for a very short time.

She attended school in Dougherty County where she graduated from Monroe High School in 1959, and also completed Albany Vocational School in the Nurse’s Aide Program.

She was married to the late Deacon Roosevelt Thomas.

During her lifetime, Geneva wore many hats. She was a mother, mother-in–law, grandmother, neighborhood mom, aunt, sister, friend, and more to many people. Most of all, she will be remembered for having a heart of gold. She will always be remembered and cherished in our hearts.

Geneva leaves a legacy of love through her four children: Sharon Clyde (North Carolina), Darryl R. Thomas, Cheryl R. Thomas, and Kimberly Holsey (Leonard) (Georgia). She also leaves three beautiful granddaughters: Eisha Clyde (North Carolina), Edriana Clyde (North Carolina) and Autumn Holsey (Georgia).

    "Nene" will forever be in my family's heart . Her laughter and ever positive outlook could never be matched. She ALWAYS had a smile on her face and continued our family friendship throughout the years by always remembering our birthdays and calling. We love you so much, Nene. My our prayers and condolences be shared to her entire family and three children, of whom she was so proud.

    I was first introduced to Cousin Geneva through my beloved mother back in the late 1970's. She told me that Cousin Geneva was family and worked in the cafeteria at Flintside Elementary School where I attended. She was a sweet lady that loved her family. I am going to miss her smile and her comforting words.
