On Monday, March 4, 2019, God in His infinite wisdom, saw fit to call to rest our loved one, Mrs. Geneva Smith Nicholas.

Mrs. Nicholas was born March 28, 1926 in Edgefield County, South Carolina to the late John and Sarah Lou Higgins Smith.

At an early age, she accepted Christ as her Lord and Savior and was baptized at Mt. Zion Baptist Church, Batesburg-Leesville, South Carolina.  Mrs. Nicholas received her education at the Batesburg High School and graduated in 1945.  After graduation, she moved to New York City where she was employed by several families as a domestic worker until she retired.

She was united in holy wedlock to John Wesley Nicholas who preceded her in death.  Mrs. Nicholas was one of five children, three of them preceded her in death – Mr. Willie Smith, Mrs. Mary Lou Morris and Mrs. Jessie Perry.

She leaves the following to celebrate her life:  one sister – Mrs. Inez Peterson of Hollis, New York; nine nieces, three nephews and a host of other great nieces and nephews, cousins and her very close friend, Mrs. Corrine Johnson.
