Jenise “Genni” Marie Slaughter

Age 64, died on July 6th, 2020 on her birthday at her home in Sacramento, CA; after a courageous battle with Complex Regional Pain Syndrome which caused her to lose the use of her left arm.


Jenise was born on July 6th, 1956 in Los Angeles, California to Georgia Mae Slaughter and Joe Slaughter. She attended Compton High School and after graduating from high school decided to learn how to sew clothing and the art of pillow making. She was taught how to sew and design clothing by her mother and went to work in the retail sales industry. Genni retired from retail sales in 2007 at the age of 51 to take on the role as caretaker for her mother, Georgia Slaughter. Genni was a loving, caring person and always gave to others without asking for anything in return. She never married and did not have any children of her own but helped raise her nieces and nephews up to the time of her death.


Genni is proceeded in death by her mother and father Georgia and Joseph Slaughter, and her brother Hilton W. Slaughter. She is survived by 5 sisters and a brother - Carol F. Bosley, Jenita L. Chambers, Jacqueline J. Slaughter, Gloria L. Hinsey, Angel Mubarak, and numerous nieces and nephews.


Besides spending time with and taking care of her family, Genni loved God and had a passion for reading, cooking, solving puzzles, playing video games like Minecraft and Zoo Tycoon, working with technology, watching soap operas, doing arts and crafts, and decorating. Genni forever had a spirit of love and kindness and always wanted to make sure that anyone that came into her presence felt welcome and loved. She touched many lives with her generosity and passion for life.


Genni loved her family very much. She always knew what to say and do to make them happy during good and bad times. She was the rock of the family and was always there when needed. An incredibly thoughtful gift planner, she always knew what to get her family for their birthdays, holidays, or celebrations that would bring them joy. In the later years of her life, she fought to maintain her health and vitality, while struggling to combat a rare chronic pain disorder. Although her passing was sudden and unexpected, she is now in a better place free of the pain and suffering she endured with her illness. She will be greatly missed by all of us.


A celebration of life will be scheduled in the future for family and friends to attend. A GoFundMe page has been created under “Jenise Slaughter Memorial” to help raise funds for her celebration of life memorial that will be held at a future date and time.
