Gennie Lou Moore was born on September 24,1929, in Marion, Alabama, and she lived for 94 years before taking her final rest on Tuesday, October 24, 2023. 

On December 28, 1948, she united with Willie James Moore. The couple and their daughters relocated to Fort Wayne, Indiana in 1951.

Sam Shade, Jr. Gennie was deeply involved in her church community. She was an active member of Pilgrim Baptist Church, participating in various aspects of church life, including Sunday School, Prayer Service, and the Baptist Training Union (BTU). Her involvement and dedication to these activities demonstrated her commitment to her faith. Later on, she transitioned to Light of the World Christian Church, where she took fellowship under Pastor Cornelius Hill. 

Gennie was employed at Parkview Memorial Hospital as a Central Services Technician for over 30 years. Not only was she a diligent worker, she was an avid gardener, who generously shared the fruits of her labor with others.
