Genon Ginn Hensley, 77, of Louisville, passed away peacefully at Christian Care Homes on May 16, 2019. She was born January 21, 1942, in Bedford, Ky. to the late Hubert and Anna (Murphy) Ginn. Genon grew up in Trimble County and Carrolton. She graduated from Georgetown College and the University of Louisville School of Law.
She worked in Administration at the University of Louisville and as General Counsel for the administration of County Judge/Executive Dave Armstrong. Later in life she practiced law in Bedford and LaGrange, Ky. During this time she also served as the City Attorney to several small cities. She attended Woodland Baptist and Southeast Christian Church.
Genon led an interesting life. She learned how to fly a prop airplane, traveled, loved reading and playing Scrabble, and enjoyed spending time with her friends. She was known for her sense of humor, and could always be counted on to help someone in need. She adored her grandchildren, and was a wonderful Nonny to them.
Her family is grateful for the attentive and respectful care she received at Christian Care Community, particularly the staff of The Meadow.
Survivors include her daughter, Lori Hensley (Clay Johnson) of Chicago, Ill.; and three young grandchildren; siblings, Shirley Anderson (Gary) of Hanover, Ind.; Sandra Guerin (Terry) of Anderson, Ind.; Hubert Ginn (Connie) of Nashville, Tenn.; Michael Ginn (Shannon) of Owenton, Ky.; Carla Petrzika (Ed) of LaGrange, Ky.; and Connie Disbro (Adam) of Carrollton, Ky.; along with many nieces, nephews, and countless friends.
