YOUNGSTOWN - Genevieve “Babe” Feschenko, 90, longtime resident of the city’s West Side, passed away Saturday afternoon, Feb., 20, 2021, at Shepherd of the Valley in Boardman.
Genevieve, called “Babe” by family and friends, was born July 26, 1930, in Johnstown, Pa., a daughter of the late John F. and Mary Popchak Homola, and graduated from Ferndale High School in Johnstown.

Babe enjoyed going to casinos and loved playing the slots. She also enjoyed baking, listening to music (especially Elvis and polkas), and watching the Pittsburgh Steelers. Her biggest joy in life was being with and taking care of her various dogs, including Trixie, Cassie, and Corky, each which were very special to her.
