Genevieve (Gene) Rose Ameigh Kamp, 95, of State College, died Thursday, January 10, 2019 at Juniper Village at Brookline. Her husband of 73 years, Roy Clifton Kamp died April 25, 2015.

She graduated from Southside High School and was an active member of the Southside Baptist Church for over 50 years. She was a devout Christian who shared her faith every day. Gene was a homemaker who lovingly raised five children. She loved the outdoors, was an avid gardener, bird watcher and hiker. Gene also enjoyed camping and traveling with Clifton, square dancing and dinner/game nights with friends. She was talented at knitting, sewing, crocheting, and weaving. After retirement, she and Clifton spent 21 happy years in Leesburg, FL.

Gene will be missed by the many friends that she touched during her life's journey. A sincere thank you to the wonderful staff for their beautiful and loving care of our parents during their 12 years of residence while at Juniper Village at Brookline. A funeral service will be held at a later date, officiated by Rev. Dean Lindsey. Genevieve will be buried next to her husband in Forest Lawn Memorial Park in North Chemung, New York at the convenience of the family.
