My valiant mother, Genevieve passed away peacefully in her 99th year at Rocmaura Nursing Home, Thursday October 5th. Gen was born in Bloomfield the eldest daughter in a family of 12 of the late Francis and Agnes (Adair) Hodgin. Genevieve was a kind and intelligent person who lived a quiet and contented life, devout in her faith and centered in family.
