January 17, 1943 - March 24, 2020 Surrounded by family and friends, Mrs. Geneva Ann Houston Pons, 77, of Connelly Springs, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Tuesday, March 24, 2020, at her residence, after a period of declining health. Geneva was born Jan. 17, 1943, in Burke County, a daughter of the late Ralph and Thelma Stamey Houston. She was a member of Connelly Springs First Baptist Church and Eastern Star. She worked as a beautician for many years before becoming a mail carrier for the Connelly Springs Post Office. She retired from the post office to spend time at their home on Ocracoke Island and to travel. She loved working in her yard and had the ability to grow any plant she touched. Geneva loved her family dearly, flowers, and crocheting. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by a sister, Norma Huffman. Surviving are her husband of 59 years, Milton Pons of the home; two daughters, Angie Pons and special friend, Wendy Pascal, of Hickory and Andrea Pons Cooper and husband, David, of Connelly Springs. Also surviving are her sister, Joyce Walling and husband, Ken, of Connelly Springs; granddaughter, Cassidy Cooper; lifelong friend, Ada Teeter of Harkers Island; and beloved cousin, Frances Davis of North Wilkesboro.
