Life Story Info
Grandma Gen was my grandma for my whole life that I can remember, my first grandma, Jane, passed away when I was only one. I have fond memories as a kid going up to Utah to visit and then as an adult, we'd always stop by to visit Grandma Gen, or Grandma Great as my kids called her, to chat or eat with her. We didn't get to see her on our last trip because of COVID. Miss seeing you, Grandma, but we will see you again!
Gen has been my mom longer than my own mom was able. She has become a big part of my life. Her wisdom and gentle spirit has enriched and calmed me many times. I have enjoyed calling her most every week and will greatly miss our conversations. I will never forget her wisdom the last time we drove past the old family home on Redondo Avenue. I remarked how sad dad would be if he saw it right now. Gen graciously reminded me it is not his business any longer, not something we can control and we don't need to think about it. That was Gen. Always helping to let go of things I really don't need to think or worry about. I will miss you, Genevieve! and I hope you know I love you.
I am Lee and Heddy Sutton's daughter. I as Gwen and Jesse's 3rd grandchild. I remember the big Sutton Family Reunions we would have at Stan and Pauline's. I am grateful for those memories of the big family together. Grandma Rachel was always so special, we called her Grandma Great. It was always fun to see Genevieve, Laura, Carol, Zella and Ada Lou together visiting. I am so blessed by my heritage and family!
What a fun reunion all the siblings are having in Heaven!
