Geri was a longtime member of Our Lady of Perpetual Help Parish in Morton, Pa. She enjoyed spending summers at her beach house in Sea Isle City, NJ sipping ‘adult beverages’ with family and friends. She enjoyed visiting her countless relatives in Ireland and found particular delight in being a fanatical Irish Step Dancing mom to her daughter Bridget. She loved watching her son Sean play football and her son Mark run track at Cardinal O’Hara. Geri spent over 30 years as a RN in Geriatrics with long stints at Manor Care in Yeadon, Pa and Riddle Village in Media, Pa. She worked as an RNAC at both facilities. She really enjoyed the camaraderie of her many coworkers and loved mentoring and teaching newer healthcare professionals. Geri’s famous quote regarding healthcare was “it is a crapshoot wherever you go”.
