Genie was a blessing to all who knew her. She was fiercely loyal, always standing behind those she loved. A firecracker to be reckoned with when defending her family. She was a true momma bear through and through. Genie loved her family. Genie was a hard worker and was a dedicated employee at the Flat River Glass factory for forty-one years. She would work forty hour weeks just months before her passing. She was an inspiration to everyone. She will be greatly missed.
