Geraldine M. Kwoka

AGE: 81 • Newark

Geraldine Mae (Kurtz) Kwoka, 81, of Newark, Delaware, died peacefully surrounded by family on Sunday, February 21, 2016. Gerry was born on June 18, 1934 in Wilmington, DE, where she was raised with her three sisters, Patricia, Joan, and Lorraine. She spent 25 years of her career working with the late Dr. Robert A. Kopecki. She would eventually retire from Sears in 2003. In both places, she met some of her life-long friends.

Gerry spent her retirement being an avid reader, spending time at the beach, and listening to country music, but most of all she enjoyed being with her children and grandchildren.

She is survived by her children, Joseph Kwoka, Antoinette Kwoka-Shehan and husband, Jack, Michelle Kwoka, and Anthony T. Kwoka and wife, Elizabeth. Gerry is also survived by her grandchildren: Sharon, Lauren, Austyn, Kayla, Zachary, Nicholas, Madison, Brett, Drew, and Trey; and great-grandchild, Travis. She is predeceased by her sisters, Patricia Kwoka, Joan Bernier, and Lorraine McCorkle.

Family and friends are invited to visit at the Doherty Funeral Home, 3200 Limestone Road, Pike Creek on Friday, February 26 from 8:30-9:45AM. A Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated at St. Catherine of Siena Church, 2503 Centerville Road, Wilmington at 10:30AM. Interment will follow in All Saints Cemetery.
