Gail F. Genovese was a loving and devoted wife, mother, grandmother and friend to many. She passed away on Sunday, August 29, 2021, at Our Lady of the Lake Regional Medical Center, after hip surgery complications, at the age of 76. She is survived by her devoted husband, best friend and travel partner, Salvadore "Sal" Genovese, residents of Maurepas. They were married on October 19, 1963 in Donaldsonville, La. and for 57 years, they were each other's rock. Together they started their family and were blessed with two children; Brian Genovese (Sherri) and Marlana Genovese (Edward "Spyder" Kucera). She was the caring grandma of Sandra Genovese (Mitch), Ashley Connell (Brandon), Cody Hoxit and the late Jake Hoxit, Crystal Kucera, Eve Dobbs (Josh) and Angela Hill (Jason). She was fondly known as GiGi to her great grandchildren: MJ, Mi'Ka, Mia and Miya Canady, Braylee Connell, Ayden Mays and Kylie Dobbs. She was born in Newark, New Jersey to her parents Charles and Elsie Kremp Fenimore, who have since gone before her. She is also survived by her sister Barbara Kennison and numerous family members and friends. Gail was always such a caring person, she would give the world to those she loved. She truly was the heart and soul of the family, the glue that kept them all together. She and her husband traveled many places over the years; she was always down to go on a trip. Her time spent at home was spent cooking for family or sitting in her favorite spot on the couch with her dog and her favorite TV shows. Her ability to love unconditionally and put a smile on your face will be greatly missed by so many. Relatives and friends are invited to attend a Funeral Mass on Saturday, November 13, 2021 at St. Joseph Catholic Church, 15710 LA-16 French Settlement, LA., 70733.
