She was a member of the American Legion Auxiliary 0057 and the Women of the Moose, chapter 610 of Elgin where she would dance the night away.
Genevieve loved celebrating "ALL" the holidays with family and friends and would decorate almost every room in the house (including herself).
She enjoyed watching game shows and sports of all kinds which is why she insisted on having two T.V.'s.

Mom, thanks from all of us for being such a wonderful mother, grandmother and great grandmother!
