- 09:30) - Genevieve P. Recla, age 93, of Norway, passed away on
Tuesday, September 14, at her home.
Genevieve was born July 2, 1928 in Hermansville, the daughter of the late Emil and Mary (Stockero) Tomasi. She was a member of St. Barbara's Catholic Church in Vulcan. She loved her flower gardens, doing word searches, and in her own words, she “loved to smoke.” Known as a classy lady with the perfect amount of spunk, she was always up for a good time and a classic country song.
She will be forever missed by all who knew her.
Genevieve is survived by a daughter Kathleen McLeod of Rochester, Minnnesota; two sons Daniel (Patti Grogan) Recla of Kingsford, Bruce (Judy Hyland) Recla of Quinnesec; daughter-in-law Joan Recla of Iron Mountain; five grandchildren Laura McLeod, Andrew McLeod, Jill (Tabitha Berger) Recla, Nick (Aimee) Recla and Margo (Josiah) Juedes; four great-grandchildren Dylan McLeod, Beau and Juliana Recla and Tucker Juedes; sisters Isabel (Ed) Triest and Donna Jafolla; brothers George (Bettey) Tomasi, Robert (Peg) Tomasi, Roger (Carmen) Tomasi, and Donald (Ginny) Tomasi.
She was preceded in death by her husband Leonard Recla on February 22, 1973, a sister Cecelia Weldon, and brother-in-law James Jafolla.
Family would like to thank her special friends and neighbors Bob and Cindy Tomasoski and Mick Zanon for all their help.
In accordance with her wishes, there will be no services at this time.
A Celebration of Life is being planned by the family for a later date.
Interment will be held at the Norway Township Cemetery.
The Ortman Funeral Home of Norway was in charge of arrangements.
