Obituary of Geneva Pearl Liebenberg

Please share a memory of Geneva to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Family and friends were saddened by the passing of Geneva Pearl Liebenberg on April 2, 2023, after she courageously fought an illness with complete faith, integrity, and courage. Geneva was born in Manistique, Michigan, on November 15, 1951, to the late Charles Moore and Elizabeth (Feathers) Moore. She was the baby sister to fourteen brothers and sisters. At the age of 14, Geneva and her twin sister, Flora, and her mother left the farm and came to Southern California where they stayed with sister Carole. This is where Geneva fell in love with California and the beach. They returned to the farm a short while later but never forgot sunny California. Then at 17, Geneva left the farm for good and settled in Santa Cruz, California where she stayed in the area for her remaining years. Geneva was also a tribal member of the Little Traverse Bay Band of Odawa Indians. Geneva was selfless and helped anyone that needed her. She had a loving heart and always put those she loved ahead of her, especially her daughter, Tarrah, who, in her own words, “was the best thing that ever happened to me.” Her daughter was the pride and joy of Geneva’s life. Words cannot adequately describe what an amazing, loving mother Geneva was. She was very close to God and got baptized with her daughter at Twin Lakes Bible Church. Geneva worked for the County of Santa Cruz for many years until she retired in 2014. She cared deeply for her coworkers and, as a union rep, fought tirelessly to support and help county workers understand their rights when she saw them being treated unfairly. There is nobody she wouldn’t open her heart to whether it was a person or animal in need. Geneva was always up for “cruising” and loved road trips with friends when given the opportunity. Geneva is survived by her daughter Tarrah Liebenberg, siblings Jack, Merle, Luella, Alan, Flora, and numerous nieces and nephews. She was preceded in death by her parents, and siblings Leonard, Mildred, Lenore, Lorraine, Carole, Robert, Virgil, Adeline, and Jimmy. Geneva is missed by all, and her kindness touched anyone that had the chance to meet her. Heaven has received its newest Angel. We are comforted knowing that you are now free and in the loving arms of God and your loved ones. We love you, Geneva…until we meet again in Heaven.
