Genevieve Dinan, 90, a longtime resident of Stamford, passed away Thursday, July 10, 2014 at Regency Heights of Stamford.

Genevieve was born June 3, 1924 in Meriden, and was one of five children of Stanley and Mary (Kozimov) Smolkowski.

In her younger years Genevieve worked at Yale & Town in Stamford and then at Robert Halls and various other retail shops in Stamford, as a sales clerk. Although she enjoyed her work Genevieve was at her happiest making and keeping her home, and taking care of her family. She enjoyed cooking, and will be especially remembered for her Sunday pot roast dinners. She was longtime parishioner of Holy Name of Jesus Church in Stamford, and stayed strong in her faith despite being unable to attend weekly mass due to her recent health issues. Genevieve enjoyed her home, and watching the NY Yankees and Jeopardy.

Mrs. Dinan is survived by her loving son, John Dinan, of Stamford. 

In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her beloved husband of 36 years, Chester Dinan, and her four siblings; Edward Smolkowski, Irene Nables, Chester Smolkowski and Harriett Marino.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated on Monday, July 14, at 11 a.m. at Holy Name of Jesus Church, 305 Washington Blvd., Stamford. The committal service and interment will immediately follow mass at St. John R.C. Cemetery, 25 Camp Ave., Darien.

In lieu of flowers the family asks you to consider making a memorial donation to the American Lung Association in Connecticut, 45 Ash St., East Hartford, CT 06108 or online at www.lung.org/donate.
