Obituary for Geneva Blakeley Woodbury

Geneva Blakeley Woodbury of Georgetown, South Carolina passed away peacefully at her home on October 18, 2019, surrounded by the love of her life, Billy Woodbury to whom she was married for 61 years, and her daughters.
Geneva was born on August 22, 1939, the daughter of the late John Muldrew Blakeley and Gladys Turner Blakeley. She is survived by her beloved husband, Billy Proctor Woodbury, three daughters, Genene Edwards (David), Jan Woodbury (Ken Warrington) and Melissa Whitaker (Drew Johnson), brother, Harris Blakeley (Patricia), seven grandchildren, eight great grandchildren; and four great-nieces and nephews that she loved like her own children, Blake Thornton, Clay Thornton, Katie Thornton and Olivia Thornton Charney.
From the time she was a little girl, she always knew she wanted to be a nurse. Geneva was a Registered Nurse in the Emergency Room for over twenty years. Her love and compassion were immeasurable. She was loved by not only her coworkers, but her patients as well. She was a member of the First Baptist Church of Georgetown. Her faith and trust in the Lord sustained her throughout her life, but was particularly evident throughout her courageous battle with cancer. Geneva was known for her infectious laugh, wonderful sense of humor, kind heart, generosity, and the joy she brought to all those who knew her.
Geneva was pre-deceased by her brothers, John Muldrew Blakeley, Jr., Muldrew Lee Blakeley and sister Kathleen Blakeley Erickson.
Funeral services will be one o’clock Monday afternoon, October 21, 2019, at First Baptist Church of Georgetown. Officiating will be the Rev. Dr. Ted A. Sherrill. Burial will follow in Elmwood Cemetery. The family will receive friends prior to the service on Monday from eleven-thirty until one in the Church Parlor.
