Beverly Ann Gensheimer
STEPHENSON, MI – Beverly Ann Gensheimer, age 72, of Stephenson, and former Marquette resident, entered eternal life Wednesday morning, September 18, 2019, at Trillium Hospice House, in the loving, comforting care of her family and caregivers at Trillium House and Lake Superior Hospice.
Born July 17, 1947, in Marquette, a daughter of Robert and Eleanor (Noblet) Menhennick, Beverly was raised in Marquette and graduated from Marquette Senior High School. On June 17, 1967, Beverly married Duane P. Gensheimer in Marquette and together the couple established a home and raised three children. Once the children were older, Beverly went to work at Marquette General Hospital. For over thirty years, she served as a unit clerk in the departments of substance abuse, oncology, inpatient psych, and outpatient surgery, prior to retirement. In 2014, Beverly relocated to Stephenson. Although basically a private person, Beverly was a dedicated and hard worker with a good sense of humor. She especially enjoyed any time spent with her family, especially the grandkids. Her hobbies and interests included gardening, sewing, and being outdoors. Beverly was a member of Precious Blood Catholic Church in Stephenson.
Beverly is survived by her husband, Duane P. Gensheimer of Stephenson; her children, Wendy (James) Goodreau of Marquette, Brenda Gensheimer of Omaha, NE, and Robert (Sally Steen) Gensheimer of Gwinn; her grandchildren, Jesse and Dylan Gensheimer of Ft Wayne, IN and Jarred Gensheimer of Marquette; her sisters, Sandra (Tom) Thomas of Howell and Roberta “Bobbi” (Darrel) Fezatt of Marquette; mother-in-law, Lorraine Slater of Marquette; in-laws, Jody (Dave) Gorden of Griswald, IA and Peter Gensheimer of Lincoln, NE; several nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Beverly was preceded in death by her father-in-law, Clyde Slater.
A Celebration of Life will be held at a later date and will be announced.
