She was born July 8, 1916 in Maysville, Oklahoma the youngest child of William E. and Katy Lou [Patterson] Sheegog. She attended and is a graduate of Maysville.

On August 4, 1935, she and Darold James Butler were married in Maysville, Oklahoma. They were married nearly 52 years at the time of his death in 1987. As newlyweds, she and Darold lived west of Pauls Valley on the old Butler farm, and later (1968) on the hill next to I-35. Their home was a gathering place for many friends and relatives. She raised five daughters and was a wonderful cook and seamstress.

Geneva found time for many other organizations such as the Women's Farm Bureau Committee, 4-H Club Leader, Pauls Valley Round-Up Club, PTA, Happy Hour Extension Club, Garvin County Cattlemen's Association and Women's American Legion Auxiliary.

She was most dedicated to the Lord in the Pauls Valley Church of Christ. She served as Sunday School teacher, Vacation Bible School teacher and headed up many committees for funerals, showers and youth activities.
