Geneva "Mama Ge or GeGe" Guess Obituary
SHERMAN - Geneva "Mama Ge or GeGe" Guess, a long-time resident of Sherman, passed away peacefully on August 17, 2011 at Homestead of Sherman, surrounded by her family whom she adored and loved with all her heart and soul. She was born on February 4, 1917 to Price and Hallie Bryant in Whiterock, Texas and attended Whiterock School District.

On March 20, 1934 she married the late Dozie Guess. To that union, seven were born. The late Franklin Guess and the late Gladys Parker. Surviving children are Rozella Patterson (I.A.) of Van Alstyne, Texas, Weneva Jacobs (and the late Dan Jacobs), Mae Joyce Patterson (Larry) and Patsy Scruggs, all of Sherman.
