Obituary of Geraldine Ann Miller
Geraldine “Gerry” Ann Miller
Lansing – Age 87, passed away on Tuesday, April 14, 2020. Gerry was a devoted Catholic, born in Owosso, Michigan. She was a parishioner of St. Joseph Catholic Church growing up. Her adult years were Holy Cross, a charter member of St. Gerard Church, and finally St. Therese Parish in Lansing. Gerry was a fulltime homemaker while raising 5 children. In her later years, she worked for ShopRite, the family laundromat and at Dayton Hudsons until retirement. Gerry was a resident at the Willows of East Lansing, to whom the family extends its profound thanks for her loving and dignified care over the last 1 ½ years. Although Gerry will be sadly missed, she is now with the angels and her late husband, Hilary who passed away September 2019. Her suffering is now over. However through her suffering she came to truly know the love of Jesus and in turn had much love and respect for our God.
