They married at 21 years of age and had two children, Bruce and Wayne, and raised them in West Orange, NJ.

So sad to hear of Geraldines passing. It’s been 60+ years since I’ve been to Pine Beach yet fate compelled me to look up Geraldine a family friend of my mom and pop from years gone by. Those summers at Pine Beach were most memorable as a little tyke. It was a tight knit neighborhood community and family meant so much back in those days. Fond memories of sailing, boating with Bill, Gerry, Bruce and Wayne and in general hanging out at their yellow beach home or playing shuffleboard at Their grandparents, which was down the street from my grandmothers summer beach home. My thoughts and prayers with the entire family. I’ll be sure to tell my mom, she’ll be sad to hear the news.

May the many memories of her always smiling, always caring personality warm your hearts always.
