Throughout Genevieve’s life she has worked numerous positions some of which include a CNA and Aurora PD Dispatcher. In 1988 she relocated her family to Rocky Ford to pursue her dream in opening her own business, La Estrella Nortena. She later became a correctional officer at Crowley County Correctional facility where she retired her badge and became a stay-at-home wife.

Genevieve dedicated her time to her loved ones, worshiping the lord and various hobbies including crafts, ceramics and baking. She displayed her love for Elvis Presley and John Wayne. She had a big heart and always donated to those in need. She never let her family go without and never asked for anything in return. Our loving Mother, Grandmother, Sister, Aunt and Friend will be missed dearly. As she always said, “No good-bye, See you later!”

A viewing will be held Monday, May 18, 2020 at Crossroads Church in Swink, Colorado from 11:00 a.m.-12:30 p.m. (We ask that all attendees wear a face mask). A Graveside Service will follow at the Fairview Cemetery in La Junta, Colorado at 1:00 p.m.
