Geri passed away at 1:00 PM on June 1


With a warm and open heart, Geri worked for many years with the Park County Senior Coalition, bringing friendship and assistance to many of Park County's most vulnerable elders.

After retirement, she joined the High Altitude Gardening Society where I met her. An avid and creative gardener, Geri was instrumental in creating and maintaining the Pine Post Office gardens. The delphinium in the center above grows in her garden; it's the biggest and most beautiful delphinium I have ever seen, a testament to Geri's gardening abilities.

With her background as a professional florist, Geri taught us to make flowers arrangements and how to make the huge wreath which we hung at the Pine Post Office during the Christmas season.

Geri had a wry sense of humor and could always find a way to make me smile. I will miss her very much.

May she find relief from earth's physical pain and rest in peace forever. Good bye Geri. :rose:

She was a TRULY remarkable woman! I worked with her at the Senior's Coalition and the seniors loved her. She was quiet, soft spoken and kind are just a few ways to describe what a wonderful person she was.

And YES did she ever have a wry sense of humor and she could deliver a line with a straight face.

:( :love: :rose:

I had the honor of meeting Geri and I'm so glad I did. She was a wonderful, warm, peaceful and just so good hearted person and I am so sorry to hear she has passed. Thanks TB for such a beautiful tribute to such a beautiful person.

I only knew her by her Pinecam name. Her death is a true loss to our community. :rose:

Geri was a good friend and HAGS buddy. We will all miss her smiling face and her beautiful flower arrangements. Gone way to soon. I will miss her.

The sister of one of the HAGS painted this memorial rock for Geri. It's in the center garden at the Pine Post Office, in front of the gnarled, weathered stump. This was her favorite garden at the Post Office.

I really liked the way she painted the flowers on the "ridges" of the rock so they look 3D.

I still miss Geri a lot and always will. We sat together so many, many times at the Pine Post Office, weeding the gardens together, along with other HAGS. :rose:

My heart still aches that I can't message her just to see how she's doing and what is going on! :rose:

Thanks for sharing this tribute of Geri. I met Geri a a few years back, I could not have met a better person. She is a kind and brave woman. I will truly miss her.
