Longtime Anchorage resident, Theresa Geiger, 68, died on November 27, 2012 at her home surrounded by her family. Theresa lived life to the fullest and that included a courageous battle with cancer.

Theresa was born in Wausau, Wisconsin to Josephine and Thedore Czechowicz. She attended Newman Catholic High School and College University of Alaska Fairbanks. Theresa met Arnold Geiger, her husband of 49 years, in Wausau, Wisconsin. Theresa was creative and a hard worker and as a result enjoyed many careers. One of her first occupations was as a hairdresser. Her earnings from her skills cutting hair put Arnold through college. In 1965, Arnold accepted a teaching job in Anchorage, Alaska. Theresa and Arnold lived in Mt. View in a modest house while they were building their house on the hillside. In 1969 they moved into their newly built house and never moved again. The profession that Theresa talked most fondly about was as an elementary teacher at Rogers Park and Spring Hill Elementary. Theresa became a master gardener and her flowers and vegetables were highly coveted, especially her carrots. She loved to sew, knit, weave, care for her dogs and spend time at her cabins and with her family. She was active in the Anchorage Weavers and Spinners Guild and the Alaskan Apple Users Group. Some of Theresa's happiest times was were sitting beside her granddaughter, Gwyneth, while they sewed and read together.

Theresa is survived by her husband, Arnold Geiger, son Richard Geiger, daughter-in-law Kathy Robinson and her beloved granddaughter Gwyneth Geiger. The Geiger Family wishes to thank their friends and family for their love and support. A mass of Christian Burial was held December 1st with a viewing and mass at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Parish. A reception followed at Kehl's Legacy Funeral Home.
