Almost a year later, I learned of Genii's passing. Genii was my mother's dear friend when the Greene's lived on Denway, and their back yard joined to ours. Genii figures in my earliest memories. She offered enormous support to my mom when my parents divorced and she heavily influenced my decision to become a Social Worker.

I learned today of Genii's passing. My thoughts go out John, Rob and Bill. I worked with her and continued to be friends - including going dress shopping. I will miss her. Carol (Archer) Haas

I always enjoyed Genii. She was full of personality, was fun loving, and usually had a twinkle in her eye... Condolences to John, Rob, Bill and the whole family...
