Born on October 30, 1943 in West Plains, MO, she married George Booth on December 27, 1961. She was known for her tireless service to others, her involvement in church activities, an infectious laugh and a heart-warming smile. Her family consists of her devoted and loving husband of 47 years, George Booth, son and daughter-in-law Dane & Christy Booth, son David Booth and granddaughters Kayla and Meagan Booth-all of the Atlanta area. Her family also consists of her mother Agness Hill (of West Plains, MO) and father Eugene LeBaron (of West Plains, MO) sisters Jayne McElmurry (of West Plains, MO) and Wanda Robertson (of Hemet, CA) and brother Terry LeBaron (of Mountain Grove, MO). Gene worked for the Maritime Administration in the Department of Transportation in Washington DC as a Program Analyst, where she retired in 1997. Gene was loved and honored by her coworkers and received numerous honors and awards during her career with the Maritime Administration. Gene was a member of the Springfield (Virginia) Church of Christ where she lived and served not only the congregation but her community as well.
