She supported her kids through going to all our games and activities. We would always come home from being out and debrief with mom, usually ending the night with laughter. Geri was an expert quiltmaker and shared that talent with many works of love. She enjoyed card games and evenings outside visiting with friends and family. She was an expert at burning grilled cheese sandwiches, making fudge and cinnamon rolls.

A short graveside service will be followed by interment at McKinnon Cemetery, McKinnon Wyoming on Tuesday July 7 at 11 am.
