Mary Geneva Sherman

Humphrey, AR, 1922 - 2015

Mary Geneva Sherman, 93, of Humphrey, Arkansas entered Glory, Thursday, October 8th at Baptist Health Medical Center- North Little Rock. Geneva was born June 3rd, 1922 in Cleveland County, Arkansas to Rev. Marion D. Camp and Lola Ratliff Camp. Geneva was a loving wife, mother, grandmother, and friend. She was a longtime member of Corinth Baptist Church. In concluding a life well lived on this Earth, she has now moved forward to an eternity with her Savior as well as her beloved husband following seventeen years of separation.
Geneva was preceded in death by her husband of 59 years, Hoyle Sherman; her parents, Marion and Lola Camp; stepmother, Minnie Camp; daughter-in-law Kathyrn Sherman; three brothers: Leo Camp, Virgil Camp, and Buford Camp; and three sisters: Opal Hartwick, Emaline Wicklund, and Hazel Tuttle. She leaves a legacy that includes her three boys: Eugene Sherman of Humphrey; Jimmy Sherman (Jean) of Humphrey; and Ronnie Sherman (Cindy) of Stuttgart; six grandchildren: Brent Sherman of Springdale; Kathy Harris (Ray) of Springdale; Kim Murray (Theron) of Benton; Kieran Sherman (Ann) of Humphrey; Cole Sherman (Beth) of Stuttgart; and Taylor Sherman (Leah) of Humphrey; 14 great-grandchildren; three great-great-grandchildren; one sister, Pauline Yarbrough and a host of nieces, nephews, family, and friends.
The defining characteristic for Geneva, to anyone who knew her, was her unshakable faith in God's promise for life eternal through the death, burial, and resurrection of Jesus. Geneva was an imperfect person who served a perfect God, and to her family, she will continue to be an example of the power of a Christ centered life. While her smile, laughter, personality, and fierce prayers will be missed, she leaves behind a lasting legacy to all who knew her.
Services for Geneva will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Sunday, October 11th at Corinth Missionary Baptist Church in Alcorn, with burial to follow at Frazier Cemetery. Visitation will be Saturday night from 4-6 p.m. at Turpin Funeral Home. Memorials may be made to Corinth Missionary Baptist Church. Please go to to sign the online guestbook.
For I know that my redeemer liveth, and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the earth. Job 19:25
