Mary Jane Gens (”Mitzi”)

Mary Jane Gens (“Mitzi”), 83, died Saturday, December 14, 2019 at Castle Rock Assisted Living in Castle Rock, Colorado. She was born October 13, 1936 in Buffalo, New York, the daughter of Joseph and Mary (Adinolfe)Weiner.

Mary Jane received her registered Nursing degree in Jamestown, New York and enjoyed a nursing career for 30 years. Some of her favorite things were family gatherings, traveling, cooking and her morning coffee. While she lived in Colorado since 1981, she visited her home in Buffalo, New York every summer where she attended family reunions, watched the sunsets on Lake Erie and took trips to Niagara Falls. Family was her primary focus, and we will greatly miss her presence, sense of humor, wisdom, guidance and love.

Survivors include two daughters Cheryl Ann (Ed) Katta, Linda Gens Mott, and a son Robert Michael (Bella) Gens. Also surviving are ten grandchildren, Ryan Katta, Jennifer Katta, Jordan Katta, Lindsey Katta, Jonathon Katta, Stephen Mott, Joseph Mott, Jeremy Jordan, Angelina Williams and Robert Gens and two great grandchildren, Ayden Katta and Aria Katta.
