Geraldine Mae Wright Humphrey Obituary
1928-2014
Geraldine Mae Wright Humphrey, 85, lived a full life in her home in North Salt Lake, Utah. She passed away peacefully in her sleep February 18, 2014. Born May 7, 1928 in Rexburg, Idaho. She is the daughter of Alma Karl and Alcie LeNelda Cherry Wright. She has 3 sisters, June Brown, Karlla Gardner and LaVon Peterson. She married her sweetheart and eternal companion Vance Humphrey, June 2, 1948, in the Idaho Falls Temple for 'Time and All Eternity'. LIFE and LOVES: Her greatest joy in life was being a mother, grandmother and homemaker; caring for her family and creating memories with lots of love, laughter, hugs and kisses. Although living in chronic pain since birth, she was always ready for a family party and welcomed company. She loved cooking from scratch with varieties of homegrown vegetables and fruits, cakes, cookies and breads. No one ever left hungry! Neighbors and family looked forward to receiving her famous holiday candies and smoked cheeses. Genealogy was her past time, realizing the importance of knowing past generations.
She was preceded in death by her husband Vance; Parents and sister LaVon. She is survived by (in Geri's words) the best children :) Steve (Paula) Humphrey; Randy (Debbie) Humphrey; Kaye Humphrey; Craig (Tressa) Humphrey; Carolyn Garner; Debbie (Tom) Theide; 14 Grandchildren and 12 Great Grandchildren with lots of loved Nieces and Nephews.
