Prayers for the family. I remember Genelle as a gentle, quiet Christian lady. Her husband, Walter, and my Van taught together at Harding when we first returned from Kenya in 1976. Jean Tate

I have fond memories of this sweet woman. She always prepared a wonderful coffee cake for me and Genette when I stayed the night with her. My thoughts are with Harold and his family. May God comfort you all. - Jill Tate Wood

Genelle was a wonderul Christian woman. Genelle's benevolent labors reminded me of a modern-day Dorcas (Acts 9:36). Her gentle and amiable demeanor made her a delight to be around. May God bless Hal and his family during this time of passing.
