Later she worked for WARC running their bingo hall for seven years. Geraldine was an active member of the Slavonian Hall for 68 years and enjoyed many family events there. One of our mothers' fondest memories at the Slavonian Hall was the celebration of her great grandfather Andrew Guich's 100th birthday party. Our mother was an avid reader and love to play solitaire or any card game with family.
The family would like to thank her most reliable and dear friends Angie Allen, Mary Ann Petrich and Joan Foreman for all their love and support of our mother.
