Gerry was very nice lady. Quiet, mild mannered and sweet. She reminds me of my own mother. So sorry for your loss Don & Kevin.
A wonderful lady will be missed by all who knew her.
Rest well my friend till we meet again. I love you Gerry.

Many pleasant memories at Heritage Woods postal dinners. Thoughts & Prayers.
We are so sorry for your loss, Don. She will be sorely missed by her church family and so many others. We have you in our prayers.
Don and family, I'm saddened to learn of Gerry's passing. Russell and I were neighbors when we lived in Flora. It was always good to see Gerry and Don again when we met.
So sorry for the loss of your loved one. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family.
May God comfort your hearts in this time of mourning. May you find peace at knowing she is with our Savior The Lord. May her memory live on forever in the hearts of all the ones she touched and loved. One day we all will meet again until then live life to the fullest, lend a hand when needed. Tell a joke when one needs to smile. Say a prayer not just when in need and never forget to tell a loved one they are loved. Forever in our hearts Rip Beautiful
She was such a sweet sweet lady. Prayers for her family.
Don our Prayers are with you. We all will miss Gerri and her sweet smile.
God has gained an angel.
Our thoughts, prayers, and sympathy are with the entire family during this difficult time. Geraldine was my Aunt LaDonne Goff's sister and she was a good friend of my mother's, Frances Cantrell, while they were growing up in the Xenia area. They went to school together and Geraldine stood up with my Mom at my parents' wedding in 1952. She will be missed by her family and many friends.
We are so sorry for your loss. May the Lord guide and comfort you. I hope you have peace knowing she's with the Lord . You are in our prayers. GOD BLESS
So sorry for your loss. I have lots of fond memories of both Don and Gerry. My dad, Daren Durey pastored their church for many years. God has surely gained a precious angel.
So many great memories of being with Geraldine, Don and Kevin. I believe She was grandma’s first cousin. When it comes to acting like Jesus would, there is no match. May her beautiful soul rest in peace in Heaven.
