Geri and Bill spent most of their lives in Harvey, Ill., where they married in 1941, and raised their family.

Geri’s many interests included outdoor activities such as flower gardening, landscaping, mushroom hunting, golfing, fishing and beach combing. She also enjoyed creative hobbies including painting, sewing, crafts, and home decor. She loved music, and especially loved to hear her children and grandchildren playing instruments and singing together.
