Geraldine ‘Gerry’ Woody, 82

Geraldine "Gerry" (nee Kepner) Woody passed away Saturday, June 23, at the age of 82.

Gerry was preceded in death by her husband, Guy Woody. She is lovingly survived by her children, Guy (Becky), Susan (Mike Haessler), Tom (Pam), Jay (Betsey), and Carolyn (Robin Buckley); and her grandchildren, Ashley, Luke, Christie, Max, Bridget and Madeleine.

Gerry was a devoted wife, mother, grandma and friend. She was a dedicated volunteer with the Junior League and her church, Crossroads Presbyterian Church (medical missions). She established a successful career as a real estate agent following the early death of her husband, Guy, from a brain tumor. She showed courage and determination even in the most difficult times and will always be remembered for her fabulous sense of humor and infectious laughter.

The family would like to send its deepest gratitude to the caring staff at Newcastle Place.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gerry’s name to one of the following charities:

American Brain Tumor Association
Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation
Lupus Foundation of America Inc.

The family will greet friends from 2:30 p.m. to 3:30 p.m. on Saturday, June 30, at Crossroads Presbyterian Church, 6031 W. Chapel Hill Road, Mequon, followed by a memorial service at 3:30 p.m. There will be a reception celebrating Gerry’s life immediately following the service at the home of Mike and Sue Haessler.
