Gen graduated from Vancouver's Little Flower Academy in 1952 after which she completed nursing training at St. Paul's Hospital, Vancouver in 1955. While working at St. John's Hospital in Santa Monica, CA, she met Chet and after a brief courtship, they married in 1957. The family resided in the United States until their return to Canada in 1964. Gen continued to work as a nurse until 1966, after which she dedicated herself to the well-being of her family.
Her children will always remember her willingness to be present, her seamless coordination of extended family dinners, and her dedication to family unity. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the charity of your choice. Cremation has taken place.
