    I am very sorry for your loss. Geri was quite an amazing woman and she made working at Coffee Thyme in Langdon fun, and when I got too angry she would tell me to go sit outside or sing her pickle song. When my family wasn’t very accepting of things Geri always made me feel better with tons of hugs and words of encouragement, and that got me through for close to 3 years until I moved. My thoughts and prayers are with her family.

    Geri was my first friend when I moved to Langdon 100 years ago. I regarded her as my sister and could talk to her about anything…I sometimes made her hair curl even more! I remember making it orange one time too! Working together with Jackie and Geri at Bretins was a trip…then together again at the coffee shop…we were like two little kids always plotting…good things…Geri saw the good in everyone. She had ample hugs and huge smiles all the time…the little white pick-up truck…she is not gone…she is INVINCIBLE…..

  14. I was so sorry to hear of the death of Geri. I have such fond memories of Geri and the support she gave my class in the years that I taught Kirby. She was so dedicated and kind to all the children of Indus Elemenatary. I never remember her not having a smile on her face. My prayers are with you, Kirby and your family at this time.

    Dear Terry, Jackie, Mathew, Kirby and grand children,

    Our sincere condolences in the passing of your wife, mother, mother in Law and grandmother. We got to know Geri through the Indus Figure Skating Club. How many times we didn’t sit together on those cold/cold bleachers! The fun and serious conversations we had! We also remember Geri for her love for the community. If something needed to be taken care of Geri would organize a meeting, even on a Sunday afternoon to see if a solution could be found.
    We hope that the good memories of Geri will help you in this very sad time. May God Bless you all.
    Arnold & Ann Heuver and family (Diana, Carla & Wendy)
