Youcha, Geraldine

Geraldine Youcha, 87, passed peacefully on June 5. A respected and adored wife, mother, grandma, great-grandma, and friend; she was a veteran journalist and author. She graduated from the Medill School of Journalism at Northwestern University in 1946 and was a staffer for Coronet magazine. She went on to write the weekly column, "As I Was Saying," for the Journal-News and contributed to Parents magazine, Women's Day, and others. She wrote the books: "Minding the Children: Child Care in America from Colonial Times to the Present" and "Women and Alcohol: A Dangerous Pleasure," and co-authored, with Judith Seixas, "Drugs, Alcohol, and Your Children: What Every Parent Needs to Know" and "Children of Alcoholism: A Survivor's Manual." She leaves behind her husband of 62 years, Isaac Zeke Youcha, along with her children, Victoria Youcha, Sharon Youcha, and Joe Youcha (Jessica Kaplan), four grandchildren, two great-grandchildren, and many nieces, nephews, and cousins.

Her family will miss her every day, and will continue to live by her three tenets: be of use, never buy retail, and don't make a fuss. Donations in her honor may be made to: Lighthouse International, 111 E. 59th St., New York, NY 10022.
