Add My Condolences

John, Andrew, Jen, Ed and Madeline - I was so sorry to hear that Geri passed. Although I haven’t seen her in awhile, she was always in my thoughts. One of my fondest memories were holiday visits at the Havertown house and the infamous painted mirror holiday murals - hers were the best!

Our thoughts are with the Auman and Saboja families during this difficult time. Mike and Diane Welding (Maronski).

It hurts to know that you are gone. You were a life force…. a shining star. You let us all into your life at MCCC. What a pleasure it was! You knew each of us on such a deep level. I find myself thinking of the song “When Irish Eyes Are Smiling!”. You were our angel and lit up our lives. Thank you and …until we meet again.

Geri was one of the kindest, most helpful people who could ever meet. Always a smile, a little joke and an offer of assistance in any way possible. Just thinking of Geri makes me smile.

My condolences to the family. Know that Geri was loved by one an all of us in our little ESW Department at Montco.

Please accept my deepest sympathy for the loss of your Mom, wife, and all around most wonderful person! May the beauty of her memory bring you comfort. Geri worked at MCCC where I have been teaching for many years. Geri was a true Gem, a kind hearted and much loved soul! She shared many stories of her beautiful family with me- loved you all so much! She gave everyone at MCCC her ALL and we appreciated it. I wish her heavenly Thanksgivings to be sure the table has Godiva Chocolate Turkeys on them. She loved having that for your family! I am truly privileged to have known such a wonderful person. Geri, "until we meet again" love, Annette Teichman

My dear Geri. What a wonderful, kind hearted lady you were for ESW. You were absolutely the most admired person I was blessed to work with! Rest now...

My heartfelt condolences to the family. I often counted on Geri to have the "right" answer for what was going on in "her" building. She was always willing to go above and beyond for any request of information. If she didn't know the answer, I would thank her and move on. Geri would pursue the answer and get back to me. I may have found the answer but she sealed it for me with a returned message. She was the "rock" and I am certain that she will be missed, yet lauded for her unending good deeds! Geri was more than a colleague. She was family! Thanks for sharing her with us at MCCC.

I was happy to have had the opportunity to work with and get to know Geri during her time in the Records and Registration Office at Montco. She had a kind and empathetic approach to others and her work. She will be remembered dearly by many at the College and the community.

I'm so sorry for your loss. I worked with Geri for many years. She was a beautiful person. I would always tell her, you are working too hard, slow down or you don't need to do that...She just felt obligated to do it, but mostly she wanted to do it for the people (family) she worked with...She will be missed
