Genevieve (Gen) M. Newton, 91, loving mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully in her sleep

Genevieve was born and raised in Niagara, WI, the daughter of Clifford and Mary Nault. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in Education at Whitewater College and was a member of Alpha Delta Kappa, an international organization for women educators. Squirt and Gen were married on August 25, 1951, in Niagara, Wisconsin.

teaching careers in Shawano and raised their three children, Tom, Mike, and Mary. They retired from teaching in 1989.
Gen was known for her love of life, dedication to her faith, family and friends. She and Squirt spent their summers at their beloved cottage on Trump Lake in Wabeno, Wisconsin. Squirt quickly came and went everywhere with her, and just before they left, he would always say, "Come on, Gen."
