Miss Genua was principal when I attended Hugh B. Bain Junior High School from 1973-1975. A wonderful school experience with her at the helm! We were all blessed to know such a warm, compassionate leader and role model.

With deepest sympathy and love and prayers, always,

Ms. Genua was my 1st grade teacher at Broad Street School in 1946. We students LOVED her. I tried to see her on her last day at Bain but just missed her. Beautiful person and soul.

I am so saddend by the news of Miss. Genua's passing. She was my principal at Bain and there was no one more dedicated to the students of that school than she. She was a great Principal and loving and caring person. My thoughts and prayers are with her family at this time.

My husband and I attended Hugh B. Bain when Miss Genua was the Dean of Girls.(1962-1964) We will always remember how gentle she could be with all her students. She will be missed by all who knew her. May God bless you all in your time of sorrow.

Ms. Genua has been a wonderful neighbor for many decades. She and her sisters have always taken such pride in their stately home. God speed, Ms. Genua.
