Genevieve C. "Genie" Wilson, 53 of Peoria Heights, passed away and flew to the loving arms of our Lord at 6:01pm Friday, February 3, 2017 at OSF St. Francis Medical Center in Peoria.
Genie was born October 21, 1963 in Gary, IN to Bob and Catherine Reinhardt. On October 19, 1985 she married Michael R. Wilson, Sr. in Jacksonville, IL.
Surviving is her loving husband, Michael of Peoria Heights; her children, Scott (Erin) Seibert, Amber (Joey) Larmore, Michael Wilson, Jr., and Janessa (Keneatris) Martinez; step-daughter, Paula Wilson; three granddaughters; six grandsons; three great-grandchildren; brother, Tommy Reinhardt; and several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
She was preceded in death by her parents.
Genie was a loving wife, daughter, and mother. She was one of a kind and had a heart of gold. She was hard working and always put others first. Genie loved to fish, especially at Lake Mead, and just enjoyed being on the water. She liked to dance, sing, and relax in front of the TV to watch a good series with her husband.
A celebration of life will be held at a later date. Cremation rites have been accorded, and Deiters Funeral Home & Crematory, East Peoria is serving the family.
