Geneva "Jeep" Davis
If God said this is my time I'm Ready!
This is dedicated to the lovely Geneva "Jeep" Davis 86 of Red Bank (Middletown) who passed away peacefully on Monday, April 20, 2020 with her children at her side. Geneva was born on July 24, 1933 in Monmouth Memorial Hospital Long Branch, NJ and was a lifelong resident of New Jersey up until being called to her heavenly home.
Geneva graduated from Red Bank High School Class of 1952. A 1952 yearbook quote: "Neve" looks neat where ever she goes, a true friend, sports minded. Enjoys roller skating, a good dancer and quiet how could you miss her pleasant manner.
Before her retirement Ms. Davis proudly worked for the Red Bank Regional High School for 20 years as a Library Aide. During her employment there she attended Brookdale Community College in Lincroft for job advancement. She was a faithful member of her childhood church that she attended with her mother (Mary E. Davis) Calvary Baptist Church in Red Bank. As a child she was baptized and participated in various church activities with her best friend until her passing Janet Johnson (Pearsall). Geneva loved her Calvary Baptist Church family and enjoyed attending Sunday morning services under the leadership of Rev. Dr. Kenneth & Lady Robin McGhee.
In 1972 Geneva received her (LPN) Diploma from the Monmouth County Vocational School of Nursing. Jeep was also one of the original Redettes Red Bank's women's softball team for several years. She graduated from the Wilfred Academy School of Beauty in 1983.
She enjoyed her 86 years of life to the fullest!!!! Especially when she was cutting the rug on the dance floor. Whether it be with her baby sister Brenda doing the swing or at the Red Bank Block parties, backyard bbq's even standing in the kitchen or driving in a car, it didn't matter where she was when the music came on she was ready to get it!! Keep on dancing mom!!! Keep on dancing!!!
What Geneva loved more than anything was spending quality time with her children, grandchildren, great grands & great-great grandchildren, and they loved to see their Nana (Nanny) come into the room since she always had a great big hug & kiss for everyone of them and them for her. Geneva genuinely loved all her biological family members with a sincere heart. She also expressed her unconditional love to so many others. Affectionately known as Ms. Davis (Ms. Geneva) to her Montgomery Terrace (The Jets) family she will always be remembered for her gentle, loving and caring spirit towards everyone both back in the day up until her departing of life in"2020." This also includes her lifelong Red Bank family, RBR family and the inspirational radio broadcast family & friends. She will be dearly missed but never ever forgotten.
God does all things well!
Ms. Davis was predeceased by both of her parents Jeremiah P (1983) & Mary E. Davis (1992); her second oldest child Cheryl Lynn Davis (2001); three brothers Orion, Melvin & Winston Davis.
Geneva leaves to cherish all of these precious memories her five children son Guy (Toya); daughters Dawn (Larry), Sonda (David), Teena (Alvin Sr.), Ravyn (Cherron), Blanche & Linda; five grandsons Dauvon, Ravyn, Bruce, Alvin Jr. Guydai (Phillip, Gerald & Alfred); two granddaughters Tikeisha Robinson (California) and Alicea Rose (Neptune) (Leslie); seventeen great-grandchildren and six great-great grandchildren; one brother Gilbert Davis Sr. of Red Bank; two sisters Vilma D. Lee of Florida and Brenda (Davis) Andrews of Neptune; a cousin Elaine Soloman of Ohio; her dear companion Robert Farley of Neptune; her childhood friend Janet Johnson (Pearsall) of Florida; her two friends Barbara & Connie of NYC and she also leaves plenty of love behind for a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends!!!
There was no such thing as a stranger to mom she truly loved from her heart!
