DEFIANCE - First Defiance Financial Corp. said yesterday it has completed the purchase of Genoa Savings and Loan Co., which will become part of its First Federal Bank of the Midwest.

The acquired thrift offices were to be closed today and will reopen Monday, First Defiance said. Those branches are in Genoa, Oregon, Perrysburg, and Maumee.
