ODESSA Delphia Elizabeth “Libby” Genovese, age 60, went to be with our heavenly father on Monday, May 10, 2010, in Odessa, Texas.

Libby was raised in Odessa, Texas. She married Sammy Genovese. They raised three children together. Libby enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, friends and her animals. Libby enjoyed taking care of others. She would give you anything she had if she thought for one second you needed it. She loved the outdoors. She had just finished planting a lovely garden with her brother, Leon, and she had planted three trees in her backyard and named them after her three daughters. Libby’s eyes would light up anytime she got to see her family and friends. They were everything to her. Libby worked as a Certified Nurse’s Assistant. She really enjoyed being able to take care of others. She will be missed by all.
