Inside KRMC Comments Off
Genny Lucas is our July featured volunteer. Genny has been volunteering at KRMC for over six years and has given nearly 1,100 hours of her time to the hospital and its patients.
Genny was born in Mt. Vernon, Ohio, and lived there until she was seven, when she moved to West Virginia. She spent the rest of her school-age years there.
After completing high school, Genny moved to New Mexico for seventeen years before finally settling in Arizona. Genny and her husband moved to Kingman twenty-two years ago, and have made it their home ever since.
Through the course of her life, Genny has done a variety of jobs. Most notably, she spent thirteen years working as a cross-country truck driver with her husband, James. Together they were a driving team that would back each other up on the road. Working as truck drivers also gave them the opportunity to travel and see the country, which is one of Gennyâ€™s favorite hobbies.
Genny and James have been married for over thirty years. Between the two of them they have two daughters, three sons, and six grandchildren.
Their family is spread throughout the country so the Lucasâ€™s stay busy by seeing them as often as they can.
When she isnâ€™t volunteering or traveling, Genny also likes to spend her time doing needle work, and baking.
Genny chose to become a volunteer because she wanted to help people. she feels that people have helped her throughout the years, and volunteering would be a great way give back. She is also an avid people person, so she like to deal with patients and fellow workers.
Genny is always smiling when you see her in the lobby and hallways of the hospital; thatâ€™s because sheâ€™s happy to be here, and happy to help anyone with any questions they might have. if you see Genny, donâ€™t be afraid to stop and say â€œhelloâ€ â€” sheâ€™d be happy to meet you!
