If you are still wanting to know more about Geneva Ratcliff, I can tell you the little that I know.
The illness she developed remains unknown. Her condition worsened over the course of several years and many people believed that it had something to do with an earlier blood transfusion. Geneva was a strong believer in healthy living and eating, which made her early death seem even more puzzling. She was also a secretary aside from running a construction business with her then husband, Willie. She loved children and neighborhood kids often gathered at her home to "hang out." Her father was a Draper from Tennessee, her mother was a Randolph from Arkansas.
