If you were around Gene, you were guaranteed to laugh because he always had a great story for you. Gene had two great loves: his wife, Rhonda, and the game of golf. You would find him most days on the golf course swinging the club or fishing balls out of the pond with Rhonda, who was the best cart driver. He loved a bargain; he loved going to the swap meets to look around and search for that million-dollar treasure.

Because of you, we have the hearts of a lion, the love of our family and an insane work ethic. We thank you dad for all the calls, wise words of advice, the love you gave us and the beautiful lives we’ve lived because of you, your hard work and your boundless love for us.

She was born in Pauls Valley, Oklahoma, on February 9, 1935, to Albert and Cordelia Hensley. She was the oldest of four children: Albert Jr. , Lida, and Nancy. At age five, the family moved to Imperial Valley, California, where she resided in Holtville and graduated from High School in 1952. Marjetta met her first husband, John Von Flue, in Holtville and married in 1953. Together they had two daughters, Cheryl and Linda. A few years after their divorce, she married John Masserini of Holtville in 1960. They had two sons, Dario John II "Johvannie," and Gregory. They remained married until John passed away in 2001. Marjetta and John lived in Holtville until 1985, then moved to Brawley. They were often seen tending their yard, gardens, and flowers, especially her roses. The Masserinis were recognized by the City of Brawley with the "Brawley Beautification Award of 1987. " Marjetta worked as a telephone operator, then for the Desert Seed Company, and later for several banks including Holtville Bank as Secretary to the president. She worked as a legal secretary for fifteen years, receiving her Associates degree in Social Science and her Legal Assistant Certification in 1978. She proudly held the office of President for the Legal Secretaries Association. She earned a Bachelor's in Criminal Justice at San Diego State University in 1985, followed by a Juris Doctorate from California Western School of Law. Her legal experience and degrees supported her volunteerism to individuals, her family, and organizations. Marjetta had a plethora of hobbies, interests, and talents which led her to own a craft and hobby store in Holtville in the early 70's, named Marjetta's "What Not Shop" where people enjoyed her crafty workshops. At home, she enjoyed sewing, flower arranging, and playing the piano for pleasure as well as for the church. Her love for flowers and nature encouraged her to pursue painting. She also loved taking photos of her flowers and family, and extended the hobby to self-developing many of her photos and entering them in the Mid-Winter Fair periodically. Marjetta was an amazing baker and cook. She won the Holtville Carrot Cooking Contest Sweepstakes prize in 1965. The grand prize was a new stove and double oven which were the "seeds" for her newly expanded kitchen. She also became the family's historian where she researched and recorded facts about family members through documents and her writings. Marjetta loved helping people, and especially her church family. She was a good steward, continuously offering her gifts of time and service which included altar care, flowers, baking and cooking, organizing, leading functions, and supporting musical endeavors. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Dario John Masserini,Jr. , her brother-in-law Larry Hicks, and her brother Albert Hensley Jr. and wife Georgia.
