Geraldine R. Pfeifer Obituary

Geraldine "Gerri" R. Pfeifer, age 81 of Somers, died peacefully at her residence on Friday, (May 23, 2014) surrounded by her loving family. Born February 28, 1933 in Middletown, NY, she was the daughter of the late Walter and Olive (Gray) Bunting, making her a decedent of the Bull family; the original settlers of Orange County, NY. On August 17, 1954, Gerri was wed to the love of her life, Robert Pfeifer, and in 1955 they relocated to Enfield from NYC. Together they started a family and resided there for 25 years before moving to Somers. Gerri attended Keuka College in the Finger Lakes and was later employed as a nurse and an activities director at Blair Manor Nursing Home. She also sold real estate for several years. She was a faithful communicant of St. Bernard's Parish in Hazardville for nearly 25 years and later with St. Mary's Catholic Church in Hampden, MA. Gerri was a member of the Jaycee Wives Club, an avid reader and she found great joy from being outdoors, especially planting in her garden or taking hikes. In the winter months, you could find Gerri skiing at Okemo Mountain in Vermont. She was also a season ticket holder for the UConn Women's Basketball team. Along with her husband of nearly 60 years, Bob, Gerri will be greatly missed by her five children, Gretchen Pfeifer-Hall and her husband, Lloyd Hall, of Enfield, Arlene Doherty and her husband, William, of Stafford Springs, Stephen Pfeifer and his wife, Ellen, of Redman, OR, Kurt Pfeifer and his wife, Diane, of Somers, and Carol McGuinness and her husband, Gary, of Groton, MA; her daughter-in-law, Carol Pfeifer, of Somers; her nine grandchildren, Shannon and Morgan Pfeifer, Andrew and Adam Conway, Katarina and Jenna Pfeifer, Brandon and Heidi Pfeifer and Kelly McGuinness; and several other loving family members and friends. In addition to her parents, Gerri was preceded in death by a son, Robert Pfeifer, Jr.; and her brother, Theron Bunting. Relatives and friends are asked to meet at St. Mary's Catholic Church, 27 Somers Rd., Hampden, MA 01036, for a Mass of Christian Burial that will be celebrated on Wednesday, May 28th at 10:00 a.m. Her family will receive relatives and friends at Leete-Stevens Enfield Chapels, 61 South Rd., Enfield, on Tuesday, May 27th from 4:00 - 7:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family has asked that memorial donations be made in Gerri's name to St. Francis Cancer Center, 114 Woodland Street, Hartford, CT 06105.
