Maria Elisa “Lisa” Genoese-Fulmer

January 26, 2016

Lisa passed away on Tuesday, January 26, 2016, following her courageous battle with cancer. She was a Lancaster County native, graduating from Lancaster Catholic High School in 1982. After graduation she attended college and obtained her certificate to be a Certified Nursing Home Administrator. Later in life, she attended York Technical Institute and received her degree in Culinary Arts. Following her education, she opened her lifelong dream of Sapori Café. Lisa had many interests including her love of cooking, traveling to Italy, and her desire to share her home cooking with everyone. She always had the mentality that there is room for everyone at her table.

Lisa was a loving and faithful wife to her childhood “crush,” Christopher Fulmer, with whom she shared 20 years of marriage. Five children survive her: Joseph, Anthony, Paige, Filomena, and Marcus. In addition to being a mother, she was also blessed by being a “Nonna” to her granddaughter, Ava, daughter to Joseph and Megan, and to the child of Anthony and Ashley Thornton expected in April 2016. Her greatest joy in life was her family. She is also survived by her two siblings, Antonia Hinnenkamp, wife of Larry, and Franc Genoese, husband of MaryEllen, and four nieces and nephews: Rachel, Caroline, Samuel and Francesca. Additionally, she is survived by many cousins here and abroad, especially Giuseppe Genoese and his wife, Donna. Her parents, Antonino and Mickina, and her brother, Philip, will meet her with open arms entering heaven.

She was a vibrant woman full of love for everyone that crossed through her path. Lisa was the person who was grateful for everything, and nothing was ever too small. Her spirit will always be present at the traditional “Sunday Dinner” and every meal that will be eaten at the table will always be greeted with her presence.

Relatives and friends are respectfully invited to a Mass of Christian Burial at St. Philip the Apostle Catholic Church, 2111 Millersville Pike, on Tues., Feb. 2, at 11:30 a.m. with the Rev. Michael Messner officiating. There will be a visitation on Mon., Feb. 1, at Charles F. Snyder, Jr Funeral Home, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz from 6:00 to 8:00 p.m. and on Tues., Feb. 2, at the Church from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in Lisa’s memory to the Ulman Cancer Fund for Young Adults, 1215 E. Fort Ave. #104, Balto., MD 21230, or ulmanfund.org.

I am so sad to hear about Lisa’s passing.  Lisa and I were very good friends through middle school and high school and bonded over all the angst and struggles that that period of life presents. I remember spending lots of time at her house on Marietta and truly enjoyed spending time there with her and her family.  We lost touch over the years and a few years ago re-connected through facebook.  It was so good to be in communication with her again.  I will always remember her as a true friend and pray for her peace and her family’s peace.  My heart goes out to all of her family and friends.  Liz Pratt-Edgerton

She was so courageous, she did convey any personal pain, was more attentive to making sure that everyone was taken care of. What a kind sole.a brave heart, and a great person. May Peace be with you, and leave the light burning bright for us to follow.

i want to send my deepest condolences to you and your family.  Although I do not know your family personally, I would like to share some encouraging thoughts from the Bible that helped me during this difficult time.  Our Heavenly Father promises to one day soon eleminate death forever, along with all sickness, pain and sorrow (Revelation).  He also longs to reunite us with our dear loved ones in the near future on a restored cleansed earth (John 5:28, 29; Psalm 37:10,29). I hope these scriptues will be of comfort to each of your and give you a peace during this difficult time.  Again I am so sorry for your loss.  Sincerely, R. Mathews

To the Fulmer-Genoese-Hinnenkamp families: my deepest sympathies to you all. Your sadness echoes in my heart for having lost such a gentle, kind, and loving woman. My heart goes out to her children. I’m sad mostly for them, having lost their mamma too soon. Much love to you all.

Dear Genoese and Fulmer Family:
I was very saddened to hear the news of Lisa’s passing.  I have many fond memories of spending time with her when the Cordell and Genoese family’s got together.  We were the same age and it was always good to see her, usually at Donna and Peppe’s.
My prayers and condolences to you all.
Regards,
Holly Cordell Martin

Dear family,
We were shocked and saddened by the news that Lisa had passed away.  At least we had the pleasure of talking to her and meeting her kids at Tony’s visitation.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
