Genevieve Virginia Mayfield, Wife, Mother, Sister, Aunt, and Grandmother went to be with her heavenly father on January 20, 2018. Genevieve was 95 years old and born in Morgantown, West Virginia on July 19, 1922.

Her spirit is carried on by her sister, Charlotte Hays of Moundsville, West Virginia, her 6 children; Terry Mayfield and wife Christine of Harrisburg, West Virginia; Sandy Lenhart of Arthurdale, West Virginia; Barbara Mayfield of Morgantown, West Virginia; Nancy Swihart and husband Joseph Swihart of Morgantown, West Virginia; Mark Mayfield and wife Janis of Masontown, West Virginia; Jane Mayfield and husband Ron White of Morgantown, West Virginia, her brother-in-law Paul Mayfield of Morgantown, West Virginia, and by her 10 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, 3 great-great-grandchildren, many nieces & nephews, and by the rest of her wonderful family.

Genevieve was one of the fortunate ladies that was able to be a stay at home Mom. She taught her children the importance of knowing there was a higher power and how important that is for their own journey of life. Genevieve was an amazing woman with many talents. She taught herself to be a Seamstress, Carpenter, Landscaper, Designer, Cook, and Painter. Above these traits, she had many gifts and talents, but the one she cherished was being a dedicated MOTHER to her children and family. We were blessed to learn many valuable lessons during her 95 years and witness the incredible job she did in her journey. We will remember her kindness, warmth, her energy, her love for her family and friends. She worked very hard all her life, up until the very end.

We would like to send a special thank you to the WV Caring (Hospice) team who helped care for our mother.

Team: Carrie Buzzo, Christina Spears, Joey Hixenbaugh, Trudy Chandler, and Erica Tolliver.

A special thank you to all of her children for their special touch in caring for our precious mother.
