Geneva Miller Carpenter
Geneva Miller Carpenter of Chatsworth, Ga. passed away Jan. 10, 2020, at Fellowship Home, Milledgeville. She was 95 years old.
Geneva was born July 8, 1924, in Winder, Ga. to the late Leatus (L.R.) and Emily Miller. She was preceded in death by her parents, her younger brother, Bonnie Miller, and beloved husband of 75 years, M.L. Carpenter.
She is survived by her sons, Kent Carpenter (Dorothy) of Milledgeville, and Marc Carpenter (Penny) of Crandall, Ga.; grandson, Kell Carpenter (Melena), and great-granddaughter Kelsey, all of Milledgeville.
Geneva graduated from Winder High School in 1941, and studied at Marsh Business College in Atlanta, Ga. Following a brief period of local employment in Winder, she supported the World War II effort as a clerk typist in the Fourth Service Command of the War Department in Atlanta.
She married M.L. on Jan. 21, 1944. After her husband prepared for a career as a pharmacist, they moved to Chatsworth in 1951 and established Carpenter's Pharmacy (now Carlton's Pharmacy). While raising their two sons, Geneva also worked in support of the pharmacy and her husband's other business ventures. She was very active in their church, the First Baptist Church of Chatsworth, and by example gave witness for her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. Those that knew her will remember her as a good neighbor and friend.
Geneva's gentle spirit and loving commitment were at the heart of her family, and allowed it to grow and thrive.
The family will receive visitors at Peeples Funeral Home in Chatsworth on Sunday, Jan. 19, 2020, beginning at 1 p.m. The funeral will follow at 3 p.m., then interment in Chatsworth Heights Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the First Baptist Church of Chatsworth.

My thoughts are with Geneva’s family. It is so painful to lose someone, yet no one else can really know all that you feel except our Heavenly Father. He knows and feels your pain. He calls death an enemy and promises to remove it forever, Isaiah 25:8 “And he will swallow up death forever…” He also promised to wake up all our loved ones, in the memorial tombs, from death (Isaiah 26:19). What joy it will be to see our loved ones again and to enjoy life as our Creator purposed (Psalms 145:16). I  hope these words give all of you comfort.
