  • Note: Genevieve (Rocheleau) Sturn, 93, passed away on March 20, 2013, after a long life and brief illness. She was born on March 15, 1920, daughter of Napoleon and Ernestine (Rivet) Rocheleau, in Iron Mountain, Michigan, a strong French Canadian community. She spoke French and was always proud of her heritage. During the Great Depression, her family made an epic journey to Neenah where her father found work, and where she has resided since. She was married to Victor E. Sturn at St. Patrick's Church on October 29, 1940, with whom she had five children.

    Gen worked at Kimberly Clark during WWII, one of the many young women to join the workforce at that time, while her husband was serving in the U.S. Army. She maintained contact with a few good friends from that time for many decades. Also, like many other women, she returned to homemaking and raising children after the war. Later, she worked as a teaching aide at St. Margaret Mary Church. She was an active member of several Catholic congregations and worked for several decades as a volunteer at St. Vincent de Paul. An old fashioned letter writer, she maintained regular contact with her children who lived at a distance.

    She is survived by her children: Sandra (Thomas) Benson, Don (Peggy) Sturn, Suzanne (Robert Strayer) Sturn, and Debra Sturn; and by her grandchildren, Anna Benson and Derek and Ian Sturn.

    Gen was preceded in death by her husband of 52 years, Victor Sturn; a son, Robert; her brother and sister, Edward Rocheleau, and Laverne (Rocheleau) Pomrening.

    Funeral services will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, March 27, 2013, at St. Margaret Mary Catholic Church, 620 Division St., Neenah, with Fr. William Frigo, O.F.M. Cap officiating. Visitation will be held on Wednesday at the church from 10:00 a.m. until the time of the mass. A memorial has been established in Gen's name.
