Gen grew up Enumclaw, and after living for a time in Seattle, she moved to Glendale, California, where she met her husband and raised her family. She was a unit secretary for many years with Glendale Adventist Hospital, retiring in 2004. She returned to Enumclaw in 2005, and enjoyed spending time with Norm and Carole, Lou, and her close friends, with frequent visits with her family. She loved cooking, reading, collecting nativities, making pinecone wreaths, Turner Classic Movies and was a lifelong Lutheran. A loving wife, mother and friend to all she met, she will be greatly missed.
She will be interred privately at Grandview Cemetery in Glendale. A memorial service in Enumclaw will be planned and announced at a later date.
