Obituary: Genevieve Marie Kitson 1926 - 2015

Genevieve Marie Kitson of Cornville, Arizona went to be with Jesus on February 3, 2015. She was born in Sheboygan, Wisconsin on December 4, 1926 to Leonard and Ruby Milke. She spent 46 years in her home in Los Angeles before moving to Arizona in 2006.

She married the love of her life, Burt Kitson, whom she met when she was only 7 years old. She babysat well over 200 children over many years. Children were the joy of her life. As family gathered around her bedside over the final few days of Gen's life, we reminisced over many memories we had. Before she passed, her last request was a Diet Pepsi and her last words were "I'm ready to go to heaven" and "Thank You Jesus." With her hands waving away and singing, 'I'm going Up, Up, Up," all we could do was smile.

Gen was predeceased by her husband, Burton A. Kitson, her sister Beverly Spence, her brother John Milke and her brother-in-law Johnny Hardin. Gen is survived by her daughter, Nancy Scheffert, son Bob (Nita) Kitson, son-in-law Tom Scheffert, grandsons Jeffrey (Tracey) Scheffert, Robbie Kitson and Brian Kitson, granddaughter Brenda (Jeremy) Doerksen, sisters Irene Hardin, Barbara Porter, Joan Flores, Ruth (Winfield) Rinker and nine grandchildren.
