Genevieve Peck, 92 of Cortland passed away on October 28, 2017, surrounded by her loving family after a brief illness.
Gen was born, raised and spent her life in the Cortland area. As a young girl, her only wish was to have a big family, which she happily accomplished. Her family of eight children and grand, great grand and great-great grandchildren were the love of her life.
The home Gen created was one of love and happiness. Family, friends and sometimes even strangers were welcomed with a smile, encouraging word and often a delicious meal. She was a source of inspiration to all who knew her and will be greatly missed by us all.
She is survived by her children Lynn Buddenhagen (Sylvia), Diane Hasek (Jeff), Lyle Buddenhagen (Diane) and Kenneth Peck (Sherri) as well as 11 grandchildren, 12 great grandchildren, 2 great-great grandchildren and many loving friends.
She was predeceased by her husbands Fred Buddenhagen and Walter Peck and children Ron, Lloyd, Gary and Sheila.
In keeping with Gen's wishes, there will be a simple graveside service at the family's convenience. Wright-Beard is assisting the family with arrangements.
