Geri was a wonderful person. Her memories will last forever in our hearts. She always made us feel like family and always knew who we were when we visited her in the nursing home. She was a very special lady. God bless her family and carry on her tradition of keeping everyone close. She loved you immensely and her love will endure forever.

Gerry was my aunt and was so warm and welcoming a person. She has the greatest husband, and wonderful children. She was my mom, Marilyn's, younger sister. They were always close though time and distance was great. She was a strong and comforting presence in my little, small town Faribault, Minnesota, Midwestern upbringing. There are the wonderful memories of warm Friday night overnights at her house, fun days at French Lake, and her consistent, loving way as my aunt. All my memories and love hold you, Gerry, and condolences to her family and friends who knew Gerry as this small town boy recalls: warm, kind, fun-loving, and my mom;s little sister...a connection I hold dearly to those shadowy and wondrous places in my mom's visions of the both of them growing up near Tracy, protecting and watching over Gerry always. Love, Dave

When I told my mother Marilyn that her sister Geri had passed on, she said, "Oh my, my loving sister...My father asked me to take care of her before he passed. I took very good care of her. I know that she is with him and he was waiting for her. She didn't remember him very well but I made sure to tell her about him as often as I could. I love my sister. I know that when Geri married Don that he took over caring for her as my Father asked." Don, you are a magnificent man, husband, brother-in-law, father and friend. Thank you, your children, beautiful Grandchildren and Great Grandchildren for giving my sister such a wonderful, happy and full life. We know that when she left this earth that God took her up gently, and lovingly to meet her Father and see her Mother too and Kay was there wearing a "Red-Hat". She is with me today as she was every day. I love you all. Geri, you are my Sunshine. Love Marilyn
