Genevieve P. Reinertsen, 92, of Dunbar, passed away Thursday, Nov. 8, 2018.
Born Feb. 23, 1926, she ran an insurance agency in Brookfield with her husband while raising two children in the 50's and 60's.
An avid gardener, she loved to look at seed catalogs in the winter to plan the next year's garden. She loved to read and instilled the love of reading and learning in her children. She was a modern woman and believed you needed to stand up to be counted, never assume that anything is only about you and always looked at the big picture.
A gentle, sweet woman, she conversed easily, was a pleasant housemate, and kept Don Z. in line.
She is survived by her husband, Don Z. Reinertsen; two daughters, Pamela (Thomas) Schneider and Cindy (Carlos) Pinera; two grandchildren and four great-grandchildren.
Family and friends may call at Grace Ev. Lutheran Church in Pembine on Saturday, Nov. 17 from 10 a.m. until time of a funeral service at 11 a.m. Pastor Gene Wickman will officiate with interment in Pine Hill Cemetery in Armstrong Creek. Roubal Funeral Home of Wausaukee is assisting the family with arrangements.
