On Dec. 28, 1958, she was united in marriage to Allen "Bud" Weeks at the Reinbeck United Methodist Church. Geraldine was a Kindergarten teacher in addition to working full-time alongside Bud on their farm in the Hudson area. She, then, stayed home to raise their children while continuing to help on the farm. Geraldine was a member of the Reinbeck United Methodist Church where she was active in Circle and volunteered frequently. She was also a 4H Leader.

She enjoyed board games, jigsaw puzzles, going to Neil Diamond concerts, and family get togethers. She especially enjoyed watching her grandchildren grow up and trying to attend all of their activities.
