Geraldine Shelton

Albuquerque, New Mexico - Geraldine F. Shelton, born in Detroit on July 18, 1929 as Frances Geraldine Brown, concluded her life on December 31, 2019. Gerry married James Shelton in 1948; she and Jim raised 4 children (Steve, Jeanette, Karen, and April) in Michigan. The couple enjoyed life in Knoxville for 11 years, attending Faith United Methodist Church. In 2013 they moved to New Mexico, where Jim died in 2014 with Gerry by his side. Gerry is survived by her younger sister, Shirley Lawhead, three of her four children, ten grandchildren, and ten great grandchildren. Gerry was a follower of Jesus and a daughter of God.
