Genevieve Gen Walton, 82, of Kenosha, passed away on Tuesday, Jan. 22, 2013, at Aurora Medical Center, with her family by her side.

She was born in Montreal, Wis., on Jan. 3, 1931, to the late John and Elizabeth (Pleau) Trombi. Gen later moved to Kenosha, where she resided for the past 52 years.

In the early 1950s she married Gene Humphrey, they later divorced. On July 18, 1964, she married Roscoe Bud Walton. He preceded her in death on Jan. 16, 1989, just short of their 25th wedding anniversary.

She was employed by Mys restaurant, Waukegan Yacht Club and the Kenosha Moose Club combining for over 50+ years. They were all jobs she enjoyed because of the interaction with customers and friends.

She loved and cherished her family and friends. She especially loved get-togethers, needless to say she cherished the holidays the most. She loved to have everyone over to her house to entertain, she loved to prepare special meals and make sure everyone had a good time. Besides, bowling, pinochle, Thursday bingo and traveling, she especially loved to spend hours talking on the phone with her brothers and sisters.
