In addition to her parents and husband, she was preceded in death by her sister, Betty Weatherly.

    Geraldine’s family, I am sorry for your loss of Geraldine, she was such a sweet person. I feel like you all were my cousins too as I was with Barbara so much. I know Ozzie, Jerry and Glen better than I do her children. So many years have gone by and I don’t get to see you all. I do not see Barbara but we talk a lot. Love to you all. Joyce
