Jeanette Marie (Sova) Geniac, 86, of Camillus, passed away Dec. 7, 2012, after a brief illness at Upstate Hospital. She was born in Syracuse, the daughter of the late John Wells Sova and Josephine Tighe Sova and stepdaughter of the late Florence (Fritzen) Sova.
Jeanette was predeceased by her husband of 32 years Van Norman Joseph Geniac in 1978.
Being the child of the Depression Era and a young woman during WWII, she herself never attended college but was an avid advocate for higher learning, and at her request her body is being donated to SUNY Health Science Center so others may learn.
Though she never was a big winner, she loved her “scratch-offs” and the machines at the Turning Stone.
Jeanette is survived by a daughter, Candy Friday, of North Syracuse. Services will be held at a later date, there are no calling hours. Contributions may be made in Jeanette’s name to Francis House, 108 Michaels Avenue, Syracuse, NY 13208.
