In Loving Memory: Genie Krieghoff-Board Member Emeritus
Genie Krieghoff had been a volunteer and board member for more than 36 years. She volunteered and worked with Sue Rhu to bring large print books to the library. Book sales in Sacramento offered large print book collections, which FOBL purchased for reasonable prices. Other activities included Grandparents and Books-reading to children and a mobile library for shut-ins. She worked on projects for the Memorial Trees that were planted on the northwest side of the library. She helped to update our Memorial Plaque that indicates donations in memory of past members. Genie was also an excellent historian and has extensive knowledge of FOBL history. She was known - and still is known - as FOBL's "Hostess with the Mostest"! Her contributions to FOBL were immeasurable and her love for her library and her community knew no bounds as well! Her love of life, spirit, enthusiasm, generosity, caring, and humility truly set her apart. This beautiful lady left us on April 15, 2016 and she will be greatly missed by all...whose lives she touched...especially past and present FOBL Board members and library staff and volunteers!
