Geraldine was born in Los Angeles, CA, on August 5, 1929, and moved to Templeton in her early teens. She graduated from Templeton High School where she was active in sports.

Together they were charter members of the Do Pasos Square Dance Club, were active 4-H club leaders, and traveled many miles with the Happy Trails RV Club.
Many people around the county enjoyed one of Jerry's beautifully decorated cakes made to celebrate birthdays, anniversaries, weddings and other special occasions. An active sewer, she joined the Almond Country Quilters and made many beautiful award winning quilts for family and friends to enjoy.
