Gen was known to be a very generous, kind and loving woman. She had a great sense of humor but was still stiff and correct. Her house was spotlessly clean and if you ever had a stain on your clothes Gen knew how to remove it. She was very intelligent and instilled in her children and grandchildren the idea that you can be anything. Gen loved to play cards, pinokel, and sheepshead with her friends. She enjoyed traveling. She loved flowers, especially lilacs, and looked outside for birds and squirrels. Gen reveled in the opportunity to go out for lunch and always enjoyed desserts. She loved spending time with her family. She was loved by all and her generosity, kindness and laughter will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
