She was a good friend to me for decades. I just tried to call her and when the number didn’t work my daughter looked her up and found out she passed away. She was a lovely person and I will miss her.

We were all saddened to learn about Aunt Geraldine. She was so joyful and humorous! We loved to be around her. She always spent time with children and taught many generations to play cards, including me. Those were special times!!
She was a compassionate giving soul and loved her family and extended family... We loved her right back!
Geraldine was so proud of her Chickasaw Heritage and wore her Chickasaw pin everywhere. She will be surely missed at the Chickasaw Senior Center and all the Chickasaw Festivities, that she so enjoyed.

I will cherish the memories I have of my Aunt as she will always be remembered in our hearts. Blessings and prayers to her family!

Love Phil and Trish
