Geneva Lynch

It is with great sadness that the family of Geneva Lynch announces her passing on Monday, July 22, 2019, at the age of 79 years.

A native of Fairview, TN, Geneva enjoyed a long career of 47 years at Bowling Supply Company. An avid bowler, she participated in WBA Tournaments for over 40 consecutive years, and was the first woman in Nashville to bowl a perfect 300 game. Amid her active lifestyle, Geneva always found time for the things she truly enjoyed; spending time with her grandchildren, traveling, baking, playing slots, gardening, and being entertained by her many hummingbirds.

She is preceded in death by her parents, Nannie and Jim Mangrum; brothers, Wymer and Thurman Mangrum; nephew, Randell Mangrum; and husband, Bobby Lynch.

She will be lovingly remembered by her brother, W.A. Mangrum; daughters, Jennifer Spelta and Teri Pugh; and her 3 grandchildren Ty, Jordyn, and Calli; nieces, Renee Claiborne, Kathy Griffith, Teresa Blackburn; and great-niece, Susie, along with many close friends and family members will share in her fond remembrance.

A celebration of Genevaโ€™s life will be held on Sunday, August 4, 2019, at the Pavilion in Harpeth Hills Funeral Home; the ceremony will begin at 3:30pm. Memorial donations on Genevaโ€™s behalf, can be made to the Sarah Cannon Fund at the Leukemia & Lymphoma Society.

    Geneva was one of a kind. She always had a smile on her face and could make you laugh at all her funny stories! I always remember her as loving her Family and Friends and loving to travel to Tunica. Had a lot of fun with her and Bobby on bus trips. Geneva was always the life of the party. I know her Family and Friends will miss her so much. Our prayers of comfort go out to all of her Family.

    I have great memories way to many to list. I always told Geneva that I wanted to be just like her when I grew up. Love her Renee and Jennifer hugs to you both.

    I will never forget Geneva’s laugh and smile! I loved seeing her at Christmas parties and bowling. I don’t know anyone that did not love Geneva. She is such a blessing to her friends. I will miss her dearly, but never forget her. I will see her one day in Heaven and I have no doubt I will see that pretty face with that beautiful smile and hear that hilarious laugh once again. I also have no doubt that her, Marcia Foster and Georgia Schotanus are the Three Muskateers in Heaven now!

    I worked for Geneva and Bobby at the restaurant in Fairview in the 70โ€™s. I always thought the world of them. I have a lot of great memories of her. I used to love her sense of humor. Praying for all the family.
