Gen was employed at Larsen Canning in Green Bay for 33 years. She also worked at Jung Great Lake Shoe Factory.

Gen loved to embroider on almost anything and she was very good at it. She also loved to play a good hand of rummy and had no problem taking your quarter; in return she would serve a wonderful lunch. Gen also enjoyed watching baseball and putting puzzles together.

Gen was loved by so many and touched so many lives. She was always willing to take care of the sick and those in need. She will be sadly missed by her family.

Friends are invited to gather with the family from 1:00-3:00 p.m. Saturday at Marnocha Funeral Home, Pulaski. The Memorial Service will be held at 3:00 p.m. at the funeral home, Pastor Jerry Wirtley officiating. Burial will take place in Riverside Cemetery, Little Suamico.
