Genny was a member of the VFW and American Legion Auxiliaries.


In her early days, Genny worked at the Brown shoe factory in Farmington, Mo. Later on, she worked for the Betty and Elmer Donze and Joe and Jean Rozier families. Genny loved working outside, mowing grass with a motor-less push mower. She was a hard worker, enjoyed ironing and everything had its place when cleaning. Genny did not miss her shows on Saturday nights and her house was where all the nieces and nephews wanted to hang out. If there are drawers up in heaven, she will be organizing them and making sure every one is watching the Cardinals baseball games.
