Finevia Geneva Morris, 85, of Kingman, Ariz., passed away peacefully on Nov. 2, 2016, with her family by her side. She was born on Aug. 29, 1931, in San Benedetto del Marsi, Italy. She lived in Upland, Calif., for 35 years and moved to Kingman in 2000. God called home the most beautiful wife, Mama, grandmother and friend anyone could ever ask for and she is finally reunited with her beloved, Glen.
Finevia Geneva is remembered as a loving, feisty, bossy, pretty, pretty princess who could always be found in the kitchen of DiCenso’s Restaurant. It gave her great pleasure to know that everyone was happy and fed.
She was truly the glue that kept our family together. Her little giggles, secret recipes, life stories and special prayers will always be held close to our hearts. She will be missed here on Earth, but just as God has gained an angel at his throne, we have gained a guardian angel as well.
She always made our troubles seem so small and had a way of making everyone fall in love with her. Her contagious love lives on inside each of us. She is never really gone as long as we keep her memories alive. Her presence will be with us from now to eternity.
She is survived by her sister Pia Jackson, Tina DiCenso, brother Tony DiCenso, five children: Juliana (Randy) Mark, Floriana (Raymond) Hanna, Adriana Morris, Danny (Jennifer) Morris, John (Stella Brewer) Morris; nieces and nephews: David (Gino) DiCenso, Paula (Eric) Sather and Marilinda (Phil) Spilotro; eight grandchildren: Jodi Morris, Michael Morris, Christopher Hanna, Dr. Jaclyn Jones, Shanta’ (Jeremy) Abbott, Joslyn Jones, Raelene Hanna and Jordan Morris; 13 great grandchildren: Rocky Goff, Austin Goff, Rachelle Morris, Brentyn Hanna, Nicholas Morris, Deserae Hanna, Makayla Morris, Emma Abbott, Averie Abbott, Caydence Nix, Morgan Nix, Bella Morris and Matteo Jones.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Lidia and Giovanni DiCenso, husband, Glen I. Morris and Deanna Zell.
