Genevieve Burby

May 14, 1925 — December 18, 2021


Genevieve Rozelle Burby, daughter of Leo Nelson joined her husband in Heaven on December 18, 2021 at 96 years old.

Genevieve married John Joseph Burby, Jr. on June 12, 1948, at Holy Name Catholic Church, Wausau, WI.

They had 3 sons: John III (deceased), Jeffrey (Lyn) Burby, Merrill; and James (Sheryl) Burby, Vancouver, WA.

Genevieve graduated from St. Mary’s Nursing School and worked as a scrub nurse in the Operating Room at St. Mary’s Hospital, and later in Milwaukee. Along with her husband, she was a pilot and enjoyed flying. She loved roller skate dancing as well as gardening. She could often be found enjoying crafts, especially painting, crocheting, knitting, and sewing. We miss her so much.
