Family and friends will always remember Geri as a gracious and caring Christian mother, a huge Packer and Brewer fan, a 70-year member of the American Legion Auxillary of Fredonia and for always making herself available when help was needed.
A private Christian burial service is being planned.
Arrangements are being coordinated by Butzin-Marchant Funeral Home of Ripon, Wisconsin.
