Geneva L. Porter, 85, of North Little Rock joined her beloved husband, Marion, in heaven last Thursday, March 20, 2014. She was born Sept. 4, 1928 in Sand Springs, Okla.

Due to Alzheimer’s disease, her last years were in a nursing home in Waco, Texas to be near her primary caregiver, her daughter.

Geneva was preceded in death by her husband, of 60 years, Marion; parents, Murphy and Willie Gillean; and her brother, Berval Gillean.

She is survived by a large loving family: her son, Rickie & Nancy Porter, and their their sons: Jason & Aimee Porter - their three children; Jared; and Jacob & Megan Porter - their daughter. Her daughters family; Gwen & Paul Bartsch; grandson & wife, Andy & Kim Hopkins, and their four children; and grand-daughter Melody, her husband Mark Cooley, and their two children.

Also, according to the Lord’s mysterious design, as we grieve the loss of Geneva, her first great-great-grandson is being born in El Paso, Texas.

In lieu of flowers, the family asks all friends to support the fight against Dementia/Alzheimer’s in her memory.

The funeral was held Monday, March 24.
