RICHARDSON, Genie Bachmann 80, passed away at home on May 26, 2020, surrounded by family. Born on March 2, 1940 in Akron, Ohio, Genie was a 1958 graduate of St. Vincent's and a 1961 Graduate of St. Thomas Hospital School of Nursing. Being a nurse was the "love-of-her-life profession," with her favorite position being a visiting nurse while living in Northern Virginia. She loved cooking for and taking care of people, and was happiest while doing things for others. Rarely did Genie meet a stranger. During the years she and Ted spent living in Virginia, friends affectionately called her the "Mayor," for her eagerness to go out of her way to help someone or to start up a conversation. Genie was a current member of St. Charles Borromeo Parish in Kettering, Ohio and a former long-time member of St. Sebastian Parish in Akron, Ohio. She is preceded in death by husband Ted Richardson (May, 10, 2020); parents Robert L. and Agnes Bachmann; and brother Robert L. (Sharon) Bachmann, Jr. Genie is survived by daughter Andrea (Tom) Verni; granddaughter Stephanie (Eric) Van Doren; and many nieces and nephews. There will be a private graveside service. A memorial mass will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations in her name can be made to Capuchin Mission (office), 3600 Butler Street , Pittsburgh, PA 15201. (Hummel 330-253-6126)

Genie was one of my oldest and dearest friends from St.Sebastian Grade School, And St. Vincent High School. I was blessed to have her as a friend. My last conversation with her was just two days before her passing and she was giggling about how she
was learning how to love jello!
You will be missed Genie!!!!!

Genie was my good friend and the best roommate I had in nurses training. Genie and I didn't see each other often but talked almost daily on the telephone. Genie always had kind words to say. She loved her family and her Catholic faith, going to Mass daily until she became ill. She enjoyed the friends she met at her new home and church. She met Theresa Rudy ( maiden name) a graduate of St. Thomas I believe of 1959 class who Genie said was very kind to her and wanted the other nurses to know. I knew of Theresa and want her to know Genie spoke highly of her. Thank you Theresa for being there for her when I could not.
I miss Genie my friend.
