Geneva, mostly known as Dean or Granny, grew up with six siblings in the Dodson Chapel Community of Overton County. She married Paul Moore at a young age and raised three boys and one daughter in Rickman.

She worked in apparel and the food industry. She enjoyed working in her vegetable and flower garden. She was also a talented seamstress who could make a dress from a newspaper pattern.

Dean worked outside the home, however, her house was always neatly kept and welcoming. Her greatest joy was hosting family and friends for Sunday lunch after church. No one ever entered her house without provisions of food and lots of it. All the grandkids received the honor of being squeezed, shaken, and lots of kisses, but they all survived her loving affection.

Born May 13, 1926, in Overton County, she was the daughter of the late Shirley and Oma (Breeding) Harris.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Paul Moore; two sons, Robert Moore and Ralph Moore; two brothers, Jessie Harris and Carson Harris; and three sisters, Opal Parrigan, Odell Lewis, and Dimple William.
