Genevieve worked at Russell Stover in Lincoln, NE and in the dietary department at Community Memorial Hospital in Marysville.  She enjoyed her work at the hospital and if anyone she worked with had trouble remembering something they were told to, “go ask Genny.”  Volunteering to cook at the Helvering Center was also a favorite thing of hers to do.

Every Thursday, Genevieve visited the beauty shop.  She liked to go so she could visit with people and be social.  She was also a regular at Hardee’s restaurant.  Genevieve enjoyed her cats and spending time with her dog Oly.
