Genny was a mentor to me when I was a young girl out of college. She was my first real boss and a great friend. I will pray she is resting in peace. My sincere condolendes to Genny's family. She spoke often of her niece/caregiver. Also sorry to see that Genny's sister Joan has passed. She was a lovely woman as well. We had great times at Emery.
