Geraldine loved to quilt and her love of polka music and dance took her and her beloved husband, Clem, across the states following the bands such as "Polka Nuts"; "Sully's Polka",  "Fritzler Band" and "Hal Holmes".  Travel was another favorite pastime and from from 2002 - 2014 they took their fifth-wheel from state to state spending much time in Arizona, their favorite destination.

Survivors include her husband, Clem; sons, Steve (Melanie) of North Carolina, Kevin (Buffie) of Brush, Colorado and Thomas (Jakelyn) of Alaska.  She is also survived by 9 grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren.
