Geraldine S. Hostetler

Friday, June 15, 2012
About sixteen years ago Gerry met and interviewed my dad, L.S. Stroupe and me at Southminster Retirement Community. Mom had passed that July in the health care center. Writing the obituary my sister , Mary Ellen, mentioned the unique position our mother carried during the WWII years for Arlington Hall as a "code breaker". This item caught Gerry's eye.

Gerry did a wonderful work interviewing Dad and me. You know, this was a stage of the grieving process. There were a lot of laughs and many tears shed- but her article was so well written- my dad loved reading it over and over.To this day Gerry's visit and her Observer article are highlights in my life.

To her family, a very precious jewel has been taken from us; but we must trust that God knew what was best. May you find peace and comfort in God's love. I am truly saddened by her death, knowing that her writing will be no more. We never met but her columns drew me to correspond periodically by email. She brought comfort to families and firends, and a sense of knowing those she wrote about. I have missed her columns and a glimpse of a guest column always gave me a smile. May she find rest in the loving arms of our Savior.

Jerri - I know you miss your Mom and words cannot express my sympathy for your loss. My deepest compassion to Mr Mauney too - she was his best friend. The many times I was her nurse at Presbyterian are fondly remembered - she was full of stories and kindness. We'll miss you Gerry.
