Genie was born June 11, 1963 in Marfa and was a lifelong area resident. She worked for the Hotel Saint George in Marfa. She was actively involved as a firewoman, and a first responder with the Marfa Volunteer Fire Department in which she could bless the community of Marfa with her skills.
Genie also blessed those in the community with helping in any way she could as well as being a friend to pets and animals, that otherwise would not have any advocates. Genie was actively involved with the New Beginnings Church of the Big Bend.
Genie is preceded in death by her parents, Manuel Gonzales Jr. and Elena Hernandez Gonzales.
Those left to cherish the wonderful, blessed life of Genie are her brother, Gilbert Gonzales and wife Lorinda; her nephew, Christian Scott Gonzales; her niece, Brielle “Baby Dog” Gonzales; her aunts, Anita Hernandez, Alicia Rivera, Hortencia Montezuma, and Linda Gonzales; all of Genie’s very special cousins; Genie’s special friends, Jo Ann Salgado, and Crystal Juarez “Her Crazy Girl.”
