Geneva Burt Spencer McQuigg, 90, passed on February 5, 2018 in Bloomington, Indiana. She was born in Kosciusko County in northern Indiana to William Kyle and Emma Bernice (Rogers) Gibson. She attended high school in Mentone, college at Manchester College in North Manchester, and graduate school at the Indiana University Bloomington campus. Her career as an elementary school teacher unfolded primarily at the University School in Bloomington, where countless former students fondly recall her energy and enthusiasm. Their stories include remembrances of the above-and-beyond programs and plays that she orchestrated and the farm animals that she spirited into the classroom through the back door. Think of a diapered baby lamb. Shhh. She celebrated three wonderful marriages to Doctors Lorin A. Burt, Beaufort “Bud” Spencer, and Bruce McQuigg. Her devoted husbands each preceded her in death. She is survived by children Marianne Burt (Bloomington, IN) and Carl W. Burt (Warsaw, IN). Also, stepchildren Ellen (Jim) Strasma of Irvine, CA; Barbara Edmonds (Bloomington, IN); Maribeth Spencer (Seattle, WA); Ted Spencer (Washington, DC); Sue (Les) Dixon of Bend, OR; and, Paul McQuigg (Indianapolis, IN), and numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren. Geneva’s graveside services will be held at 1:00 pm, Monday, April 30, 2018 at Wooden Cemetery (Harrison Center located on the corner of 100 S. and 800 W.) Etna Green, Indiana. She will then have a graveside service at 2:30 pm, Monday, April 30, 2018 at Stony Point Cemetery, Etna Green, Indiana (north of Atwood on County Rd. 650 N. near 700 W.). Pastor Sue Clark will officiate. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Carl W. and Lorin A. Burt Memorial Fund at Manchester University, 604 East College Avenue, North Manchester, IN 46962 (Geneva’s father-in-law, Carl W. Burt, was a well-respected, long-time football coach at Manchester).
