Geneva B. Robbins
On Thursday, March 6, 2014, God, through his divine mercy, sent an angel to Heritage Park in James-town, to bring to him in heaven, one of his special saints, Geneva B. Robbins.
Jenny, as she know by most, formerly lived at Tanglewood Manor in Jamestown, in Falconer, Ken-nedy, Conewango, and Seager Hill.
Jenny, a lifelong resident of the area was born Jan. 20, 1915, to the late James and Leana Bova Burnside. She and her husband Harold were married in Bliss, N.Y., on Oct. 16, 1932, and had been married for 57 years, when he went to heaven on Oct. 30, 1989. She was 99 years old.
Prior to retirement, she worked at Art Metal Corp. for 19 years from 1951-70 and later at Robbins’ Veneer.
Jenny loved her Lord and Savior and would read his word every day, until her eyesight would not al-low that to happen. She was a former member of Falconer Baptist, Southside Baptist and New Heights United Methodist Church.
She was a loving mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and great- great-grandmother. The family will always remember the holiday dinners at grandma and grandpa’s home, where they all got together for lots of food and celebrated those holidays.
Jenny is survived by three sons: Harold (the late Delores) Robbins of Port St. Lucie, Fla., Clarence (Charlene) (and the late Janice) Robbins of Kennedy, and Gordon (Jean) Robbins of Jamestown, 11 grandchildren: Bradley, Jeffrey, Gary Robbins, Deanna Rothleader, David, Donald, Brian, Bruce, Craig Robbins, Lory Hatfield and Kim Robbins, 22 great-grandchildren; and 11 great-great-grandchildren.
She will be remembered as the last of her generation in our family and besides her immediate family. Jenny will be sadly missed by many nieces and nephews and their children who called her “Aunt Jenny” as well as all the friends she has made along life’s journey, especially at Hospice Chautauqua County and Heritage Park in Jamestown.
Besides her husband, she was preceded in death by three sisters: Lillian Robbins, Cecilia Wolfer and Ruth Keller: two brothers: Richard and Ralph Burnside; and a great-granddaughter, Kari Nystrom.
The funeral will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday in the Falconer Funeral Home. Her son, Gordon will officiate. Burial will be in Pine Hill Cemetery.
Friends will be received by the family from 2-4 p.m. and 6-8 p.m. Monday in the funeral home.
Memorials may be made to Hospice Chautauqua County, 20 W. Fairmount Ave., Lakewood, NY 14750.
