Saints Hospital, Springhill.
Born in Springhill, she was a daughter of the late Amos and

Geraldine was a strong willed and determined woman. She was a
member of the Mapleton United Church where she served as a Steward,

Leader when her family was younger. She loved her flowers, especially
geraniums, time spent outdoors 4-Wheeling, and creating many crafts,
including knitting and crocheting. She and her sister Helen enjoyed
their many shopping trips, and every drive included a stop at a yard
sale, plus a meal out. She loved her family, especially her
grandchildren and great grandchildren who were always treated to a
cookie or sweet. Over the years, she was often a caregiver to many of
her family members, and her time with them was always filled with love
