Genevieve S. HOWELL Obituary
HOWELL, Genevieve S. On July 8, 2010 the gracious life of Genevieve "Gen" Margaret Howell (Sweeney) came to a gentle passing joining her beloved soul mate, E. Lawrence Howell. Gen was born April 13, 1929 in New Haven, CT. Gen moved to Ivoryton as a child where she spent the first 75 years of her life, raised a family and enjoyed a career as a secretary, beginning at the Congregational Church in Ivoryton in 1960 and retired from Valley Regional High School in 2005. She then traveled to Tennessee to visit and stay with family for five years before returning home to Connecticut in April of this year. Gen was predeceased by her parents, Kilcey and Leslie Bingham, her sisters Mary Redfield and Olive Streeto; and grandson Jason Howell of Naples, FL. She is survived by her children: Wayne Howell of Murfreesboro, TN, Brian Howell of Chester, CT and Wendy Goss of Tennessee. Gen was a loving grandmother to Matthew Howell of Naples, FL, Joshua Goss of East Haddam, CT, Brittany and Benjamin Howell of Chester, CT and adored her five great-grandchildren and a special nephew Ralph Streeto and his wife Sharon. The family would like to thank Chesterfields Health Care Center and Weiss Hospice Unit at Middlesex Memorial Hospital for their compassion and support during Gen's final days. Also a special thank you to two wonderful friends and caregivers- Mildred Parker of Murfreesboro, TN and Judith S. Howell of Middletown, CT. In lieu of flowers please send contributions to Middlesex Hospital, Office of Philanthropy, 28 Crescent St Middletown CT 06457. Arrangements by the Robinson Wright & Weymer Funeral Home in Centerbrook, CT. A celebration of Gen's life will be held at a future date.
