I am sad to learn of Geraldine's passing, but happy for her, and sad that I have not seen her for so many years. Growing up as kids/cousins from Ft. Scott, KS, we stayed over-night with each other. I have one fond memory of staying at least a week when the family lived in Arkansas. Hearing of her passion for God and helping others tells me that she, for sure, has been her "father's daughter"! May her family cherish their heritage that she has left for them! Loreta Wood Jent, September 5, 2016 Dear Melissa, I am so sorry about your mother. You are in our prayers for God's blessing of strength and peace. Warmly, Jan and Michael Jan and Michael McBride, August 22, 2016 Linda, your Mama was a good woman. She loved her children so much. She was a good pastors wife. She cared for a lot of children and cooked many yummy meals for her family and for others. She is NOW in the home she longed for most of her adult life. Because of the blood of Jesus shed on Calvary and because she believed, accepted it and lived obediently for Him, He is in the process of rewarding her now! She worked and prayed her long ... life to have you there with her. I know you will NOT disappoint her, because we know there will be NO disappointments in heaven! Does Jesus care when our hearts are grieved? OH! YES He cares! I KNOW He cares! His heart is touched by your grief. Shalom over you and the rest of the family! Mary & Wayne Sisseck Mary Greathouse Sisseck & Wayne Lee Sisseck, August 22, 2016 Our thoughts and prayers are with your family, I am sorry for your loss.

Ellen Bise Wolfe, August 21, 2016 What a dynamic, warm caring and lovely lady. Mom as Bruce always spoke of Geraldine was such a bright spot in my life getting to talk with her. She uplifted all and made all that she came in contact with feel as special as she was to us! Her life will always be big in the hearts of her family... a love that will as she was - tirelessly always giving. To know her was to LOVE her ... our love and prayers go out to her special and precious family! Love, Taylor Hegan Taylor Hegan, August 21, 2016 So sorry to hear of Geraldine's passing.

She said "It was her calling from God". When I had Ziad, & found out he had Down Syndrome, she was very happy to care for him and wanted him early on. She was full of love for all. Prayers to her family. Rest in heavenly peace.
