Geneva Rosie Glass Leidi was born May 24, 1935, to Wallace and Floie Riddle Glass in Stratford, Oklahoma. Geneva worked for the United States Postal Service for over 25 years where she clerked and was also a mail carrier for much of that time. After retirement, Geneva took full advantage of her time and enjoyed life to the fullest.
Geneva also enjoyed traveling and experiencing life’s adventures. She lived in several states, including Michigan, Oklahoma, and Texas. For many years, she would spend half of the year in Lubbock, where she enjoyed gardening, bird watching, raising a heard of wild turtles, feeding the neighborhood birds and numerous squirrels. When she was not in Lubbock you could likely find her at the cabin in New Mexico with her longtime companion, Wayne. Anyone who knew Geneva, knows just how much she enjoyed her time in the mountains. Although this was a vacation, she like the other Glass women in the family, spent her days taking care of everything and everyone around them. She spent time every day feeding her mountain animals. She also gardened and transported flowers and bulbs to and from the mountains to share with family and friends. She cooked and cleaned and made sure Wayne was always fed a balanced meal so he would have plenty of energy to help with her next project. Together, they walked countless miles with their pride and joy a fox terrier named Snickers. They truly lived their best lives and had the opportunity to be surrounded by unconditional love and experience God’s handy work in creating a place specifically for them.
Even with all her commitments to her plants and critters she always made time to spend with family and friends. Geneva spent countless hours baking and sharing treats with others. It wasn’t uncommon for an evening card or board game to last well past bedtime, but that didn’t matter because she was surrounded by those she loved, and the room was filled with laughter.
Geneva Leidi is survived by her siblings, Eva Nell O’Conner, Mary Warren, and Monroe Glass; many nieces, nephews, and extended family members. She was dearly loved by her honorary granddaughters Patricia Crow, Madi Clemmons, and Cassidy Clemmons. She is preceded in death by her favorite companion Wayne Webb; parents, Wallace and Floie Glass; brothers, L. W. Glass, Wallace Glass, and Bill Glass.
