Genevieve E. Cruikshank

1928- 2012 Genevieve Estelle (Hunt) Cruikshank of New London, N.H., passed away peacefully at her home just short of her 84th birthday. She loved life and lived it to the maximum surrounded by her family and her many friends.

Genevieve was born in Pittsfield, the daughter of Ambrose and Estelle Hunt. She had two sisters Edith and Evelyn, both of whom predeceased her. After finishing high school, Genevieve graduated from Boston University where she met George, her husband-to-be. They were married in June, 1950 the beginning of a marriage that was to last more than 62 years.

The couple was blessed with four children: Victoria, of Boca Raton, Fla.; Kirk, of Saratoga, Calif.; Lisa, of Danbury, Conn.; and Craig, of Washington, D.C. They, in turn, made Gen's life especially happy with the arrival of four grandchildren: Heide and Scott Cruikshank and Robbie and Will Hutchinson.

Gen devoted her life to her family as a homemaker in New Canaan, Conn., and later in New Hampshire and Vero Beach, Fla.

A devoted flower-lover, she spent many years in the Garden Clubs of New London and Vero Beach. Gen greatly enjoyed golf and was an avid member of Lake Sunapee Country Club in New London and Bent Pine Golf Club in Vero Beach.

Funeral services will be held in Lenox, MA and burial will be in the family plot in Mountain View Cemetery in Lenox.
