Donnie, Neva’s uncle, named her after the strongest woman in the family, Sara Geneva, known to all or better known as MAYA. Donnie knew Neva would have similar characteristics as her grandmother. Neva was a prime example of Maya’s rules to be kind, be fair and be firm. Neva inherited her culinary skills from Maya, who is an exemplary cook. Geneva’s passion for cooking moved her to attend the Culinary Program at NM Central Community College (CNM) for a year when she discovered hands on cooking was better than learned culinary. Neva loved sharing her amazing dishes with family and friends. Family & friends delighted in the most tasteful meals they ever eaten. Neva’s heartbeats of life were her family, especially her mom, children and their father. She would intentionally go over and beyond the call of duty to meet their needs. Geneva believed investing in the lives of others is the best investment people can make and she implemented it all the time.
Geneva (Neva) was fun, loving, caring and sociable; she will be greatly missed by her family and friends.
