Aunt Jenny, you were such a joy to be around growing up. I remember mom and me dropping by your home and spending time with you. I was so proud to have my dress made for your wedding. Thank you for all the love you showed our family. Rest in peace. You will be missed.

To Lynn and the Grandchildren, my deepest sympathy goes out to you on the loss of your mother, grandmother. To my family, I was surprised to hear of Aunt Genevieve's passing. She was always so full of life and kind and thoughtful. One of my last happy memories was when we went to Steak and Stein for her birthday a few years ago. She will be missed. I pray you all find comfort in the happy and joyous memories you shared with Aunt Genny.

Now forever in the arms of the Lord.

On behalf of the Ministerial Team, the Diaconate Ministry and the entire Church family at the East Preston United Baptist Church, we would like to extend our most sincere condolences to you on the passing of your loved one, Sis. Genevieve Halcrow. In this time of great sorrow, please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Sis. “Genny” was a wonderful Servant of God who will be missed greatly but always remembered. We can rejoice knowing that death is not the end but a transition to a place free of pain and suffering. The word of God reminds us in 2nd Timothy 4:7-8,
( KJV) “I have fought a good fight, finished the course, I have kept the faith: Henceforth there is laid up for me a crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, shall give me at that day: and not to me only, but unto all them also that love His appearing. By faith we believe, that Sis. “Genny” has now received her Crown.
As you walk through this valley of the shadow of death, it is our prayer that you can find peace in the sweet memories you have of her. We also encourage you to draw on the strength, wisdom and comfort that only God can provide.
Sending our Blessings to you all during this time of bereavement and always.
Ruby Williams, Clerk
East Preston United Baptist Church

I was always happy to meet up with Aunt Genny at family functions. She was always pleasant, smiling, and if something funny was said, she had a laugh that could fill a room. I hope and pray the eternal love of God be a blessing upon her family and her Spirit.

As I read the name Halcrow - my memories go back to
my GE days when I worked with a Rollie Halcrow. Somehow
I feel it could be that same person.
To all family, sincere sympathy as you deal with your loss.
