Eugenie Joan Thomas was born March 28, 1930 in Fairmont, Minnesota, a daughter of George J. and Daisy (Peck) Thomas.  She married George Stolze January 6, 1950 at St. Joseph’s Catholic Church, Rock Island.  He preceded her in death October 19, 1987.  She married Anthony B. Werthmann June 24, 1989 at St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Davenport.  He preceded her in death November 3, 2011. 

Genie’s passions in life were her family, shopping and eating!  She would outlast any shopper at the mall, and never left the house without dressing to the nines with matching lipstick, jewelry and purse.  In earlier years, she loved to travel all over the states and to Europe. Genie enjoyed a great friendship with a group of high school classmates that would get together every third Thursday of the month for over 60 years.

Genie enjoyed spending time with her extended family and her annual shopping trips with her daughters.

In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to St. Alphonsus Catholic Church, Holy Family Church or Assumption High School.

Survivors include her children:  Sharon (Bill) Barrett, Davenport, Joan (Mike) Manning, Tucson, Arizona, Sheila Stolze, Centennial, Colorado, Susie (Wade) Luense, Davenport and Jim (DeAnn) Stolze, Bellevue, Nebraska; 12 grandchildren and 12 great-grandchildren and stepson, David Werthmann, St. Louis, Missouri.

In addition to her husbands, she was preceded in death by a son, John Stolze; and stepson, Gary Werthmann.

The family would like to express special thanks to Senior Star Memory Care and Genesis Hospice for their care and compassion.
