Relatives mourn loss of Brooklyn mother fatally shot by estranged husband at somber funeral

Iveliss Alvarado-Genao’s body was laid out next to a rhinestone tiara and a dozen long stem wild flowers in a satin-lined, gray casket on Tuesday — as cops continued to search for her estranged fugitive husband.

Relatives gathered at the Coney Island Memorial Chapel on Neptune Ave. in Brooklyn to say goodbye to the 30-year-old mother-of-two, murdered on Friday in Sea Gate.

“My daughter was a hardworking, loving girl,” said Olga Alvarado, Alvarado-Genao’s mother.

Loved ones brought flowers and said farewell to Iveliss Alvarado-Genoa at Coney Island funeral home on Tuesday.


Alvarado-Genao, 30, was working as a nurse at a veteran’s hospital in Maryland, but returned home to Coney Island recently. She had two daughters, aged 4 and 9.

Her husband remains on the loose. Authorities allege that Gabino Genao, 30, shot his wife twice in the face outside her relatives’ home after she rejected his attempt at reconciling their marriage.

“They had split up some time ago, but he wouldn’t let go,” Alvarado said Tuesday. “He was jealous. He is a sick man.”

Alvarado-Genao’s brother-in-law, former Mets star Melvin Mora, said the family is reeling from the loss.

“She wanted nothing to do with him,” Mora said. “I don’t know what could have crossed through his mind. She was beautiful, just beautiful.”
