Geneva Lillie Schmidt, 84, died May 21, 2019, in Granbury.

Services were held Friday, May 24, at Riley Funeral Home Chapel. Burial was in Cottage Hill Cemetery in Shive.

Mrs. Schmidt was born on Friday the 13th in October 1934 at the home of Elton and Edna Brister in Bogue Chitto, Mississippi, the third of five children.

She loved her family but grew up poor on material things. She never forgot when her daddy brought home a guitar and then a mandolin. That is where her love of music started.

She was married to George Tuttle Logan June 19, 1954, in Jackson, Mississippi. He was in the transportation industry, so they lived in Jackson, Baton Rouge, El Paso and Dallas, and along the way welcomed three sons, with whom she shared family values, seven chords on the guitar and her love of music.

George passed away Aug. 6, 1973.

She married Burt Leslie Schmidt Feb. 7, 1975, in Cedar Hill, TX. She was very blessed to have two great loves.

Burt owned a trucking company “Diamond S Trucking.” He passed away April 21, 2006.

She loved music, church, camping, traveling, cowboy gatherings and being a mom. She also loved living on the farm and tending to everyday chores, friends, family and most of all doing anything
