GERALDINE A. LAWRENCE - WINOOSKI - On May 1, 2012, Geraldine (Gerry) A. Lawrence passed away in Our Lady of Providence, to be with her Lord and Savior. She will be greatly missed by her children and grandchildren. Born on April 12, 1929, she was the daughter of the late Gladys and Raymond Gilmond.

Gerry worked many years at Gaynes Department store before returning back to General Electric, where she finally retired in 1991. She is survived by her children, Mike and Kathy Lawrence of El Cajon, Calif., Gary and Dorothy Lawrence of Richmond, Ky., and her daughter, Joanne and Richard Morris of Newtown, Conn.; and her daughter-in-law, Renee Lawrence of Burlington. She is also survived by her six grandchildren, Michelle, Michael G., Mark, Brian, Jodi and Nathan; and her five great-grandchildren. She was predeceased by her son, Richard D. Lawrence; and her sister and brother-in-law, Pauline and Henry Francis. The family of Gerry Lawrence would like to give a very special thank you to the nurses and staff at Our Lady of Providence for their tremendous care over the past few years that she was a resident.
