Genevalois Gregory Brewer, also known as G.L., passed away April 18, 2017, at her home in Garland after a brief illness at the age of 89. Visitation will take place at Williams Funeral Home in Garland from 4 to 6 p.m. Saturday, April 22; and a graveside service will be conducted at 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 23, at Memoryland Memorial Park in Greenville.
She was born near Amo, Ind., on Sept. 18, 1927, to Mary Elizabeth Montgomery and Buford "Mike" Bailey. She was their only child. She lived on the family farm in Lizton, Ind., until she graduated from high school. She married Roland Ray Gregory and moved to Garland in 1952 where she lived for the rest of her life. After several years of working, she ended her secretarial/bookkeeper career by retiring from a Construction Company in Garland.
After retiring, she enjoyed horses, square dancing, showing/owning/and participating in field trials with her bird dogs and raising cats and dogs as family members. Lately she enjoyed going to the beauty shop, going out to eat and watching TV.
She was preceded in death by her companion of 20 years, Andy Anderson; her parents; grandparents; aunts and uncles Vileta and George Hider, Lloyd and Zola Johnston, and Pud and Russell Montgomery; and stepgrandson Damon Farquhar.
She is survived by her only child and son-in-law, Debra and Dale Farquhar of Commerce; her cousin and husband Barbara Lynn and Bill Mann of Speedway, Ind., stepgrandchildren Jerry Farquhar of Campbell, Angie and husband Brent Jordan of Midland, and Monya and husband Joe Sterner of Lone Oak; seven stepgreat-grandchildren and one stepgreat-great-granddaughter.
It is with great pleasure to say she had some wonderful, caring caretakers/friends the last month of her life. They took care of her so that she could stay in her home since that was her wish. Debra and Dale would like to thank VNA Hospice, Gloria Westra, Georgia Place, Chuck Parham and Taylor Farquhar for taking care of her until she met Jesus. Pam Tarrer and Patrick Parham are also thanked for doing a lot of the behind-the-scenes work for G.L.
