They farmed together in the Alden area until 1984 when they retired and moved to Albert Lea. Genevieve was active for many years at Redeemer Lutheran Church as a Sunday School teacher and organist.
Genevieve enjoyed “Walker Week” family vacations, farming with Franklin, playing piano, playing cards, sewing, painting, decorating, baking for her family, watching her children and grandchildren in sports and other activities, and visits from her family.

Genevieve’s courage and strength were an inspiration to all who knew her. She had a deep and personal Biblical faith in the Lord Jesus Christ that she shared with her family. Her love and wisdom will live on in the memories her family will share together.
