Genevieve Rowntree (Stewart)
January 18, 1935 - November 22, 2015
On Sunday, November 22, 2015 Genny, formerly of Hagersville, passed away at St. Peter’s Residence at Chedoke in her 81st year surrounded by the love of her family. She is now joined with her husbands Hugh (1982) and Alvin (1997). Loving mom of Brenda (Brian) Gray, Dianne (John) Poel, Debra (Peter) Santacroce and Shawn Lynn (Jack) Madden. Proud grandma of Jay (Shannon) and Colin (Melanie) Poel, Andrew (Tammy) and David (Louise) Gray, Nik (Yulia) and Mike Santacroce and Wesley Madden. Devoted great-grandma to Kaiden and Shylee Poel, Lucas and Sophie Gray, Eleanor and Emmett Gray. Genny was the oldest child of Frances and Glenn Stewart, sibling to Leroy (Joan), Audie, Late Karl (Linda), Late Donald (Paulette), Lorraine (Ron), Dianne (Mike), Sharon (Zeke), Late Gwen (late Ed), Lenore (late Hugh). Genny will always be remembered by the Rowntree family and the McQueen’s of Cape Breton. Special thanks to the St. Peter’s staff for their exceptional care and to the Cedar Wing for making mom ‘safe.’ There are no words to describe how thankful we are to Aunt Lorraine for the care provided to mom while in Hagersville and the continued visits when she moved to Hamilton. As per Genny’s wishes there will be no funeral, a private family interment will be held. A celebration of life for those who were touched by Genny will be announced at a later date. For those wishing to make a donation, the family has suggested the Salvation Army Red Kettle Campaign, a charity dear to Genny’s heart
