It is with deep sadness that we lay to rest our sister, aunt, mother and grandmother, Tessie Genise, on September 5, 2021, at the age of 72, after a brief but brave battle with cancer. She is now reunited with her loving husband Gunther, who passed away only two years ago. She will be greatly missed for her strong Catholic faith, her unconditional love and her generosity.
Tessie was a loyal employee of the Government of Canada in her role as Finance Officer. She enjoyed travelling, cruising, gardening, mentoring members of the Toastmasters club, an avid supporter of the Liberal party, as well as doting on her beloved dog Goliath. Throughout her life, she always took care of her family and cherished her numerous friendships.
Tessie is survived by her sisters, Nenenfa and Medy; her stepsons, Garrick and Chad; her nieces and nephew, Josie, Geraldine and Kenneth; and her grandchildren, Victoria, Aina, Abby, Kingdom, Elijah and Sophia.
Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Anthony Roman Catholic Church, 250 Burrin Avenue at 9:30 a.m. on Wednesday, September 15, 2021 with interment at Holy Ghost Cemetery to follow.
