Armstrong, Geneva

Geneva F. Armstrong, 77, of Fayette, Ohio, died Jan. 17, 2020, at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo. 

She was born Feb. 10, 1942, to the late Sylvan and Hazel (Baker) Waldfogel. In December 1977, she married Richard D. Armstrong, and he survives. 

Geneva worked at I.T.T. Higbie for about 40 years as a human resources assistant. In her lifetime, she was a member of the Red Hat Society women’s organization, Business and Professional Woman’s Association, the Ohio Child Conservation League, a traveling acting group called The Pretenders, and the Sweet Adelines—a singing group that provided the introduction for WOWO Radio in Ft. Wayne.  She loved to read—reading almost every romance novel ever written—latch hook, and above all, her grandchildren.

In addition to her husband, Geneva is survived by a son, Rey (and Angela) Armstrong; step-children, Sean Armstrong and Michelle (and Martin) Braddy; 10 grandchildren; and 15 great-grandchildren.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
