Obituary for Genevieve A. Molitor

GENEVIEVE ANN MOLITOR was born on August 6, 1919 to Albert and Mary (Kraemer) Buhr at St. Luke’s Hospital in Aberdeen, SD, and was baptized in the Catholic faith. She was raised on various acreages in the area before moving to Stewart, MN. She attended and graduated from St. Boniface Catholic School in Stewart.

On April 27, 1946 Genevieve was united in marriage to Marlin ‘Marty’ H. Molitor at St. Boniface Catholic Church. The couple made their home in Stewart, where Genevieve worked as a telephone operator. They then moved to Minneapolis, MN. A short time later Genevieve and Marty moved to Luverne, MN to care for Marty’s father. The couple quickly settled into Luverne and Genevieve was eventually blessed to be a homemaker to their seven children. As the children became older, she also worked part-time as a waitress and in later years managed the Sunrise Motel for one year with Marty. Through the years, Genevieve and Marty spent time living in other communities including Waverly, NE and Sioux Falls, SD. While living in Sioux Falls, she and Marty managed an apartment building.

Marty preceded her in death on December 18, 1996. At that time Genevieve returned to Luverne. She continued her active life as a member of St. Catherine’s Catholic Church in Luverne, VFW Auxiliary, Pink Ladies, and R.S.V.P. Throughout her life she enjoyed bowling, golfing, crocheting, card making and an occasional Bank Bus Tour or casino visit. She will be remembered for her strength as a person. This will be most appreciated by the stubborn children to whom she passed this trait.

Genevieve died peacefully on Saturday, November 17, 2012 surrounded by her family at the Sanford Luverne Hospice Cottage at the age of 93 years, 3 months, and 11 days.

Grateful for having shared her life are her six daughters, Kathy (Jerry) Deuschle of Luverne, and their children, Derik (Missy) and their children, Morgan and Jacob of Andover, MN, and Dan (friend, Megan) and his daughter, Lizzie of Golden Valley, MN, Gail (Kent) Gabrielson of Mesa, AZ, and their children, Tari and her daughters, Alannah and Cassie of Mesa, AZ, and Jason (Anita) and their children, Mark and Justin, of San Diego, CA, Marlene (Marlin) Erickson of Sioux Falls, and their children Pam (Scott) of Sioux Falls, and Heather (Bruce) and their children, Luke, Alec, and Aaron, of Pierre, SD, Nancy (David) Guertin of Granite Falls, MN, and their children Tricia (Tom) and their children, Blake and Tyler, of Canton, SD, Joshua (Danielle) and their children, Victoria, Jacob, Michael, and Grace, of Granite Falls, and Sarah and her daughter Janel of Granite Falls, Cindy Boll of Luverne, and her children, Marti and her children, Allison, Ashlee, Anna, and Abby, of Luverne, and Colette (Bryan) and their children, Caleb and Owen, of Mankato, MN, Debbie (Leroy) Kvam of Granite Falls, and their children, Carrie and her children, Sydney, Olivia, and Taylor, of Echo, MN, and Curt (Katie) and their children, Zach, Amanda, and Kyra, of Granite Falls; her sister and brother-in-law, Florence and Francis Schuelke of Elkhorn, WI; several nieces and nephews; and special friends, Dick Smook, Tillie Clark and Barb Dispanet.
