Geri Lintz was born on March 3rd, 1920 in Washington, Iowa. The first of two daughters, she was very close to her sister, Vivian, and her cousin, Kay. Geri loved the Lord and was a lifelong Catholic. She attended Catholic Schools and was a member of Our Lady of Guadalupe in Silvis, IL in her later years. Geri met her husband, George ("Jack") McChurch, in Washington. They were married in 1940 and relocated to Carbon Cliff, IL where Geri's best friend was her neighbor, Anita Bruce. Geri and Jack raised 5 boys (Dennis, Clayton, Thomas, James and Jeffrey) and their residence was remembered for always being open to friends and family. Geri was also blessed with seven grandchildren: Bobby, Tommy Jo, Amy, Julie, Jennifer, Jason, and Mindy plus dozens of great-grandchildren and step-grandchildren. She loved her family and was the matron of all family gatherings for over 60 years.

Geri resided for 3 years at the Lighthouse Villas in Silvis, IL where she made many new friends including introducing her son, Jeff, to his future wife, Rachael. In 2010, Geri moved into Jeff and Rachael's home in Hampton, IL where she lived her remaining years under their love and care.

Geri enjoyed crafting and made beautiful draperies. She loved to get "dolled up" and enjoyed dancing. She worked at J.C. Penney in Moline for over thirty years, retiring in 1993. Geri was a wonderful card player and an active member of several card clubs. She especially loved to play poker, and would often schedule a side-trip to Las Vegas when she went to visit her son, Tom, in California.

Geri is survived by her sons, Tom McChurch of Costa Mesa, CA and Jeff McChurch of Hampton, IL, her daughter-in-laws, Linda and Rachael, and a loving extended family and friends. She was preceded in death by her husband, parents, sister, three of her sons, her daughter-in-law, and many friends.
