    Geri was a wonderful lady. We spent many times after church talking of her childhood, career and her dear husband Herb. May she rest in peace.

    I was very sad to hear of Geri’s passing. Her bright smile aand appreciation for everyone around her will be missed. She was very proud of who she was and always had a story to tell. She always was concerned about other residents and wantiing to help them if she could. She will be missed. She will be dancing in God’s heaven now. Dance on Geri…..i’ll miss you.

    I’m sorry to hear of Geri’s passing. I visited with her several times at Liberty Manor and she would always get a kick out of telling me about her days as a performer. She loved entertaining and being entertained and I will miss her smile and conversations. Peace be with your family at this time.

    Geri and Herb had a nice home on Roche-a-Cri Lake where she was always willing to be the hostess for UW Extension “Home and Community Educators” (formerly “Homemakers”). She was a great supporter of UW Extension for which I, as a young Extension Agent, appreciated very much. I have kept in touch with her at Liberty Manor where we enjoyed visiting in the front room by the big TV which was one of Geri’s favorite sitting and socializing spots. We have been friends for 40 years and I will miss her very much.

  6. Kathy Williams says:

    I’m sorry to hear of Geri’s passing. She was a very sweet lady and I have fond memories of her. I worked for the County when Geri was at the Courthouse working in the County Clerks Office; then she retired and I kept working. I did see her at Liberty Manor while visiting, she didn’t remember me but was friendly and was always smiling. Keep her in your heart.
