We would like to extend our sympathies to the family of Vernon and Geraldine Genetti on the passing of their mother, July 15, 2020 at the age of 98.
Geraldine (Fernandez) Genetti, married Vernon Genetti in 1942 in Collinsville, Illinois. Vernon (1918-1999) was the youngest child of Vigilio Genetti (1852-1932) and Margaretha Mueller (1882-1956).
Vernon was a first-generation American and the youngest of nine children fathered by Vigilio Genetti. He was part of a large extended family who had immigrated from Castelfondo, Trentino, Austria during the latter part of the 19th century. The Illinois branch of the Genetti family settled in Collinsville and St. Louis.
Vernon and Geraldine made their home in Fairmont City, IL where they raised their family. Geraldine was active in several organizations and was an avid Cardinal Baseball fan. She is survived by her three children, six grandchildren, and eight great-grandchildren.

With our deepest sympathy to Genelle, Sharon and Thomas, along with their spouses, children and grandchildren, on the passing of their mother.
