Genevieve Alberta Orr Dies at 68

Genevieve Alberta Orr Genevieve Alberta Orr died peacefully on Aug. 28 at the Embracing Hospice Care in Snellville, Georgia. Genevieve was born on July 27, 1947, on the beautiful island of Antigua. She was the first child of Oscar and Alice Martin (deceased) of Antigua, West Indies. She was 68 years old.
Survived by her lovely husband, Conrad C. Orr; children: Elvis W. Anthony, Kitsi D. Greene and Francine Orr; grandchildren: Hakeem, Naja, Angela, Marcus, Janauvia, Taylor, Mariah, Gabrielle, Eylsse and Elijah Anthony, Kimberlee and Tarmarley Orr, and Khadijah Hamm; great-grandchildren: Kaden Hamm, Malik Nicholas and Kawai Orr; brothers: Esworth and Glenmore Martin; sisters: Sylvanita Martin-Hosier and Roselyn Martin; along with other family and friends too numerous to mention. She loved and cared for her family, and nurtured them into the Christian faith.
She was gainfully employed with the Department of Human Services in the Head Start Program as a chef for 22 years until retirement. God has given us all a gift; some of us have the gift of preaching, teaching or prophesying, but for Genevieve, it was the gift of being a chef. She has blessed many people with her culinary skills.
Genevieve’s celebration of life will be held at Friedensfeld Moravian Church No. 1 Estate Mon Bijou on Monday, Sept. 14, with a viewing from 9 a.m. followed by her home-going service at 10 a.m. Interment will be at the Friedensfeld Moravian Church Cemetery.
All arrangements are by James Memorial Funeral Home Inc.
