Norfolk — Genevieve Mossman, 92, formerly of Inman, known to most as "Jenny" or "Grandma Jenny," died peacefully at home near Norfolk on Friday, May 27, 2022 attended by her son and family members.
A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Brockhaus Howser Fillmer Funeral Home in Norfolk is in charge of the arrangements.
Jenny was born Jan. 30, 1930, to Ernest and Ella Brunckhorst and spent most of her youth on a ranch at Inman. Jenny had four sisters and two brothers.
In 1950, Jenny married Max Mossman, from Inman, who preceded her in death in 1980. Jenny and Max had four children Polly (Rance, deceased) Timperley and Ruby (Jack) Frost, all of Norfolk, Phil (Robin) Mossman of Monument, CO, and Kelly (Brenda) Mossman of Grand, Island.
Grandma Jenny was blessed with 15 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren. She was deeply loved by them all and she both enjoyed and loved them all very much. One great-granddaughter, Annika Marie Meisner, preceded Jenny's passing. She was loved by nieces, nephews and many others, who also learned so much from this great lady. To say that she will be greatly missed is an understatement.
Jenny graduated from Inman Consolidated High School, in Inman. She became a licensed beautician and had a shop in her home in Lyons. Additionally, Jenny operated a day care out of her home in Norfolk, becoming loved as “Grandma Jenny” by the many children for whom she cared.
Jenny was an excellent gardener and cook. She put lots of love into growing, canning and preparing food for her family and friends. She was a skilled seamstress, talented quilter and the master of needlework. She was an accomplished artist, painter and crafter making many wonderful things for others. Jenny could work with wood, hang wallpaper, paint and even shingled their house in Lyons. Through the years she patiently taught many family members those skills.
Jenny was a remarkable woman who treated everyone with respect, always put others before herself and never said an unkind word about anyone. She enjoyed her family, going on many adventures, trying new things, ice fishing with her children and grandchildren, camping, traveling and the county fair.
Jenny will be greatly missed by the many that loved her and remembered frequently as loved ones use the skills and lessons learned from this amazing lady and cherish the wonderful times shared.
Jenny is survived by one sister Bertha Colman.
She was preceded in death by three sisters Barbara Brunckhorst, Audrey Hansen and Faye Smith; and two brothers Marvin and John Brunckhorst.
