Genevieve V. Worrell (nee Long), 92, passed away quietly on Oct. 13 at Lutheran Home at Moorestown.

She is survived by her two sons, Richard F. Sr. and Robert J. and his wife Carol, both of Moorestown, and her brother John Long (widower of Mary) of Bristol. She also leaves behind her three cherished grandchildren: Richard F. Jr. and his wife Heather; James J. and his wife Christine; and Kimberly Anna. She is survived by a great-grandson, four great-granddaughters, one great-great-granddaughter, and two nieces and their families, all of whom she loved very much.
