Gerone Elizabeth Burgess Carnes

Gerone Carnes, 90, of Greenville, wife of the late Richard “Dick” S. Carnes, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, October 23, 2014 while surrounded by her family.

Born in Jocassee, S.C., she was a daughter of the late Joseph M. Burgess and the late Maude Wigington Burgess. She was a long-time member of Leawood Baptist Church in Greenville.

Mrs. Carnes is survived by one sister, Hilda Burgess Cooper, and her husband, Duncan, of Simpsonville and many nieces and nephews.

In addition to her husband, she was preceded in death by four sisters, Blanche Hannah, Oleene Towe, Mildred Cantrell and Evelyn Schaler; and three brothers, James Burgess, W.C. “Dub” Burgess and Broadus “Bow” Burgess.

A Graveside Service will be held on Saturday, October 25, 2014 at 1:00 PM at Woodlawn Memorial Park, Greenville. Family friends are invited to a luncheon immediately following the service at Duncan and Hilda Cooper’s home.

The family requests that memorials be made to the charity of one’s choice in lieu of flowers.
