Geneva Kay Hines, 60 of Fairmont, WV, passed away on Tuesday, May 16, 2023 after an extended illness at the WVU J.W. Ruby Memorial Hospital in Morgantown. She was born in Clarksburg on May 2, 1963, a daughter of the late Clovis Wayne Pigott, Jr. and Fern Geneva Hamrick Pigott. Geneva is survived by her husband of 29 years, Nelson Lynn Hines.
In addition to her husband, Geneva is survived by her two children: Fern Geneva Hines Stibler (Alex) and Wayne Nelson Hines, both of Fairmont; two sisters: Teresa Paugh (Robert) Of Philippi and Roberta Bartlett (Ronnie) of Clarksburg; step-mother: Betty Pigott of Wallace; step-brother: Scott Walls of Wallace; nieces: Jessica Bartlett of Clarksburg, Destiny Fister of VA, and Dana Davis of VA; nephew Joseph Bartlett of Clarksburg; mother-in-law: Carol Hines of Birch River; brother-in-law: Brandon Hines of Birch River; sister-in-law: Deanna Hines of VA; and many extended family and friends to mourn her passing.
In addition to her parents, Geneva was preceded in death by her step-brother Robert Walls and father-in-law Nelson D. Hines.
Geneva received her Masters in English from WVU and taught English as a second language in Tokyo, Japan for five years after graduating. She then started her career as a professor at Fairmont State University where she also taught English as a second language for over 20 years. Teaching was very special to her and she cherished her students very much. She was very loving, caring, giving, and had the sweetest personality. Geneva never knew a stranger; she would talk to anyone at anytime and anywhere. Her greatest love was her husband and children; and her love for her extended family will never be forgotten.
Family and friends will be received at Davis-Weaver Funeral Home in Clarksburg on Friday, May 19, 2023 from 3-8 pm.
