  • "In knowing Genevive only a short span of her life - she..."
    - Betty Porter

DOBBS, Genevieve "Ginny" (Steed-Gideon) was born September 10, 1924 in Arbala, Texas. She attended business school in Dallas, Texas, and moved to Tucson after she graduated in 1944. Soon after moving to Tucson, she met the love of her life, Tom Dobbs and they were married soon after. In 1947 they had their son, Danny Dobbs. Together, Ginny and Tom opened and ran several businesses in Tucson, including the Dream House motel, a drapery shop, a wrecking yard, a furniture shop, and a TV repair shop. After her husband died, Ginny continued their legacy and ran the businesses and several rental properties. A few years later, she began working at St. Mary's Hospital in admissions until she retired. Ginny was known for her relentless spirit, tenacity, work ethic and love for her family. Her cooking and her sewing was legendary to anyone who knew her. She is survived by her son, Danny Dobbs; her daughter-in-law, Jhonette Dobbs; her grandchildren and her great- grandchildren. She was the backbone of the family and her loving spirit will be greatly missed. We love you. Graveside Service will be at Evergreen Cemetery on Wednesday, April 11, 2018 at 10:00 a.m. Arrangements by EVERGREEN MORTUARY.
