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.

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.
