Geraldine was known as Gerry to most and Gege to her oldest sister. Gerry had a unique way of following a very structured schedule. She never forgot a time or a date. She made sure to remind others if they did. :) Geraldine was a precious, loved, innocent, special sister, who brought the best out in everyone. She loved walking, singing, listening to music, shopping, wearing Avon jewelry and eating delicious food. Chili con carne, linguini with clams, and chicken cacciatore were among her favorites. She always started her meals with a prayer and ended her prayers with “bless the hands that made the food.” We all smile when we remember her saying “Saboola Babe”.
