Genevra served the community for over 30 years as a crossing guard and was an active parishioner of the Roman Catholic parishes in McKees Rocks over the years.

An avid camper, her other interests included spending time with family, baking, crafts, sewing, and living in the Christmas spirit all year long. Mom, Granny, Great Gran, Gen was truly a lover of life. Also known as “Granny Granny Ding Dong”, her life motto was to “put a smile on your face and a song in your heart”.

She will be dearly missed each and every day ahead. And as she always said to those she loved most, we will “LOVE YOU ALWAYS”.

Family will receive friends 2-4 & 6-8 PM SUNDAY at McDERMOTT FUNERAL HOME, INC., 1225 Chartiers Avenue, McKees Rocks.

Mass of Christian Burial 9:30 AM MONDAY, St. John of God Parish, the Church of St. Mary’s.  Interment to follow in St. Mary’s Cemetery.
