Geneva DuVall Obituary

Geneva L. DuVall, 87, of Crystal Spring, Pennsylvania, peacefully went to be with the Lord on January 7, 2024 surrounded by her family.

She was born on September 19, 1936, in Warfordsburg, PA, the daughter of the late Sheridan L. Garland and Leona M. Garland Gordon. On September 24, 1952 in Winchester, Virginia, she was united in marriage to Richard L. DuVall for 67 years. He preceded her in death on November 15, 2019.

She graduated from Southern Fulton High School, Class of 1954, Warfordsburg, PA. She was a faithful member of the Breezewood Lighthouse Assembly of God Church, serving as Sunday School teacher, pianist/organist, deaconess and Bible Study leader for many years.

Geneva loved having her family and friends surrounding her. She enjoyed cooking, quilting, and gardening. However, her most fulfilling job was raising and caring for her family. No one who came into Geneva’s home was a stranger.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by sisters-in-law Mary Anne Garland and Joyce Garland.
