Geneva B. Carmichael Lukach

ÇRUMPLER — Who can find a virtuous woman? for her price is far above rubies. Proverbs 31: verse 10:

Geneva B. Carmichael Lukach (affectionately called Nonna) age 92, of Crumpler, W.Va. went to be with the Lord Sunday, August 18, 2013, at her daughter's home in Crumpler, where she had resided for the past 13 years. Born on June 17, 1921 in Biltmore, N.C., Geneva was the daughter of the late Larrie Franklin and Mary Eliza Penn Carmichael, and she had been a resident of Crumpler for 89 years.

Geneva was a homemaker and was a caregiver to her Dad for 10 years prior to his death in 1967. She was of the  Methodist faith and accepted the Lord into her life in January 1934 at the age of 12 under the ministry of Rev. Z.D. Holbrook and re-dedicated her life in the 1970s under  the preaching of Rev. Olen Robertson. Geneva practiced the "lost art" of pin curling her hair nightly until the age of 79. She was quick to serve snacks to all who entered her home and was always willing to help anyone with a need.

In addition to her parents, Geneva was preceded in death by her husband of 34 years, Louie P. Lukach, her  brother Penn Carmichael, her sister Martha Irene, and an infant sister. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

Her survivors include: Her daughter Patricia Ann "Patsy" Bailey and husband Arthur L. Bailey of Crumpler, W.Va., her  grandson Evan L. Bailey of Crumpler, W.Va. Several special nieces and nephews.

Funeral services will be conducted Wednesday, August 21, 2013, at 1:00 P.M. at the Widener Funeral Home Chapel, Northfork, W.Va. with the Rev. Mark Smearman officiating. Entombment will follow at the Woodlawn Memorial Park Mausoleum, Bluewell, W.Va. Friends may call on Wednesday, at the funeral home from 11:00 A.M. until the hour of service. Serving as pallbearers will be Johnny Anderson, Evan Bailey, Arthur Bailey, Justin Caves, and Fairley Hall.

Arrangements by Widener Funeral Home, Northfork, W.Va.
