A Glimpse of Geneva’s Life

On March 28, 1937, God delivered one of His most unique and precious creations into the arms of Ray Ermon and Beulah Correntha Cunningham. They named their first child Geneva. She spent her childhood in Clarendon, Ar.

Geneva was a faithful member of Bethlehem M.B.C. in Clarendon, Ar. and later moved to Little Rock, Ar. to live with her daughter Barbara and united with Evangelistic Baptist Church in North Little Rock, Ar. Under the leadership of her son-in-law Rev. Charles Gatlin.

Geneva met the love of her life James Henry Roberts and they united in married on June 5, 1956.

James and Geneva shared a 58 year love story filled with ups and downs, good and bad days, as well as; love and laughter until he transitioned on December 10, 2014.

God blessed them with ten children. And of all the incredible roles she fulfilled in her lifetime, Geneva made it evident that the most revered and esteemed positions she ever fulfilled was being a loving, caring, mother to her 10 children.

Geneva graduated from Clarendon High School and work at Piper Industry for almost 30 years. She had a green thumb and a deep love for flowers and plants. Geneva was also an exceptional Cook and reading magazines was one of her favorite past time.

Preceded in death by her Parents, Ermon Sr. and Correntha, her husband, James Henry, her son, Michael Anthony, one brother, Ermon Jr. and one sister, Sadie Lee.

A lifetime of love and memories will be forever remembered by her 9 children, Barbara Roberts, Little Rock, Ar., Evang. Angie ( Pastor Charles) Gatlin, Little Rock, Ar.

Sandra Harris, Casscoe, Ar., Pastor Dennis (Debra) Little Rock, Ar., James (Amanda) Roberts, Little Rock, Ar., Evon (Cedric) Smith, Little Rock, Ar., Randall Roberts, Little Rock, Ar., Bridget Roberts, Little Rock, Ar., Dr. Kendra (Pastor Toney) Roberts-Orr, of Little Rock, Ar.

A daughter in law, Sharon Roberts, Stuttgart, Ar.

Six sisters and two brothers, Elvew Washington, Little Rock, Ar., Herb (Barbara) Cunningham, Vacaville, Calif., Leonia Cunningham, Atwater, Calif., Dannie Kaye Cunningham, Little Rock, Ar., Martha Jo Cunningham, Antioch, Calif., Willis (Darlene) Cunningham, Little Rock, Ar., Mary (Grady), Cunningham, Little Rock, Ar. Janice Cunningham, Little Rock, Ar.

She also leaves a powerful legacy of sixteen grandchildren, eleven great-grandchildren, as well as, a legion of nieces, nephews, and an innumerable number of cousins and several friends.

She was one of the most faithful, consistent, one-of-a-kind, selfless souls to ever walk the face of this earth. Her survival skills were matchless. Her beauty was inside and out. While she is without a doubt rejoicing in her Heavenly home, with her Savior and her King, her former earthly home is a bit dim, now absent of the rays of sunshine Geneva radiated everywhere she went.

Her life was rewarding, full and blessed. On June 1, 2023 she slipped the bonds of this life for a life of eternity rest.
