Gentsia was a very active woman. She loved and was every active in genealogy. We all know what part of the world we came from. She was married to Bob Ray for many years who was a twenty-year man in the Army with time spent in Vietnam. He passed away in 1988. Many years later she met another Bob. Bob Zimmerman. They met on the internet. They emailed a lot then had many long phone conversations . He came and met the family; was accepted & she then married her second Bob & they moved to Arizona where he lived. Many years later he passed away and a few years later she moved back home. She joined the First Baptist Church of Beltsville where she met a wonderful group of women in her Sunday School class, and they became buddies. After a few years she moved to New York to be near her youngest daughter Stacy. By this time, she had developed lymphedema. In a few years she moved to Florida to be taken care by her son Stephan. She eventually ended up in a nursing home where she passed away on June 20th in her sleep. We know she is resting peacefully in heaven with Jesus.
