Genevieve enjoyed many activities outside of the home including owning the Country Greenhouse for over 20 years and working at Walmart for 29 years in the Lawn and Garden area, retiring in 2015 at the age of 96. Her family and her flowers were her greatest love, always ensuring an extra plate was set at the table for any extra family or friend. Along with taking care of family, Genevieve enjoyed her gardens. She spent many hours each summer planting and growing all types of flowers to make her yard and neighbors' yards look and smell very beautiful. She was a member of the Fort Dodge Garden Club and First Presbyterian Church for over 50 years.

Marlene Schultz and her family and Jim and Linda Pratt were special among the numerous nieces and nephews.
