May 12, 1942 - April 1, 2020
Genevieve was born On May 12, 1942 in Honolulu, Hawaii to Augustine and Octavia Cortez. She was one of four children, three girls and one boy. True to the spirit of an islander, she believed that life was supposed to be easy even when it was difficult. Her mission in life therefore, was to make sure that her family was always okay and happy. She touted family among her most significant accomplishments. While working at Arden’s Nursing Home in Seattle as a CNA, she made a quick friend of her coworkers. They would often hang out together after hours to let their hair down. One time they all agreed to meet at a hangout called Shay’s Restaurant in the Seattle area and everyone agreed to go. Clyde Baxter and Genevieve arrived separately and thought everyone else was just running late. The night went on and they were the only ones that ever showed up. Their friends wanted to make sure they got to meet privately and set the whole thing up. It worked so well that on February 14, 1990 they made the ‘setup’ official and got married. She loved family time and always tried to make the best of it. Some ways she made sure that could happen was by having plenty of family BBQ’s, camping time, fishing and spending time with her grandchildren. Whenever and wherever you found her, she was probably at some point going to be singing. She loved music of all kinds, but salsa music was her favorite. She loved flowers also with roses being her favorite. She enjoyed going to her favorite Casinos and whenever possible she liked to spend time with her daughter and her family in Pasco. After a brief illness, she went back into the hands of our loving God on April 1st, just a few days ago. She is survived by her loving husband Clyde Baxter; daughter Sandra (Steve); granddaughter Francheska; great-grandsons Mason and Anthony; great-granddaughters Amelia and Emily; other grandchildren Carlos, Allysa, Kristen, and Angela; brother Augustine Cortez, Jr., and sisters Laverne, and Lorraine.
