Geneva Holland Obituary

Geneva J. Holland, age 76, of Milbank, South Dakota died tragically in an auto accident on December 27, 2023 in New London, MN.

Geneva Joann Holland was born on April 15, 1947, to Myron (Bud) Allan and Marian Maude Elsberry. She was born in Aberdeen, South Dakota. She entered God’s Kingdom on December 27, 2023.

Geneva graduated from the Clearmont School District. She married her soulmate, Roger Holland in June of 1965. Together they welcomed two children, Teresa and Mark. She worked at the Cambridge Hospital for 10 years before moving to the State Hospital. She worked there until they closed their doors. She then worked at the Cambridge Nursing Home, Hinkley Casino, and multiple group homes. She moved to Milbank, South Dakota to be closer to her children and grandchildren. It was here where she worked at Golden Living Nursing Home and retired after 19 years.

Geneva loved to travel and spend time with her family. She enjoyed sitting in her chair, drinking hot tea, listening to books, and eating a caramel roll. She loved taking care of her family and soaked up every second she could.

Geneva was a wonderful mother, grandmother, sister, and friend. She was loved by many and will be missed by all.

Geneva left behind a son, daughter, eight grandchildren, seven great grandchildren, and many cousins. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband, her two brothers, and a great nephew.
