Geneva Barnes Delphey, age 81, of Fairfield, PA and formerly of Union Bridge, died Monday, June 17, 2019 at Heartfields of Frederick. Born May 19, 1938 in Frederick County, she was the daughter of the late Cletus Eugene Barnes Sr. and Charlotte Clem Barnes. She was the wife of Joseph Franklin Delphey, her husband of 51 years, who died in 2011.
Geneva was a 1956 graduate of Elmer Wolfe High School, Union Bridge. She was a retired vice president of the Stockholders Department of Farmers and Mechanics National Bank.

Jane Doll and the late Robert Ross. Through the Eastern Star, Geneva coordinated many bus trips and other fund raisers for charitable purposes. She was also very involved in working with the elderly, the blind and handicapped people. She enjoyed working in her yard and her fish ponds and possessed a great love for her Schnauzer dogs, the “little people” in her life and she held a special place in her heart for the SPCA. She treasured the spot on the top of the hill overlooking the farmland she loved and where she grew up.
