Genevieve M. Wood, a lifelong resident of Lewis Ave, Winthrop passed away on July 22, 2022, at 87 years old. She was the beloved daughter of the late William J. and Mary E. (Harrigan) Wood.
Genevieve was the dear sister of the late Mary Pilla, Margaret E. “Mardie”, Randall F. and William Wood. She is lovingly survived by many nieces and nephews.
Gen originally worked for Northeast Airlines which merged with Delta Airlines. She remained in the airline industry for her entire career and retired from Delta.
Gen had many varied interests and hobbies. She travelled extensively throughout Europe and cruised with many friends through the years. She loved Cape Cod and thoroughly enjoyed her second home there with her two sisters and friends. She was an active participant in the Winthrop Senior Center. Hobbies included genealogy and keeping family connections going, as well as creating beautiful handwork such as needle point. Her most important interests were her dear friends and family. Hosting parties at home gave her great joy and her New Year’s Day open house parties were legendary. A trip to Foxwoods or Encore lifted her spirits especially when family and friends came along.
