Woodbury, MN

Geraldine Alice “Gerry” Smith, age (95) passed away peacefully at Woodbury Estates in Woodbury Minnesota on February 16, 2024, listening to her Irish music which gave her peace before passing. She was born July 10th, 1928 to Thomas and Louise Luskey. Gerry lived her young life on a farm in LeSuer, MN home of the “Jolly Green Giant”. Gerry was preceded by husband Richard J. Smith. She is survived by her brother Fenton Luskey. Also survived by her children Donna Smith-Stafford, Dianne (Gary) Alexander and Michael (Nicole) Smith; grandchildren Melissa (Nathan Sr) Vaughn, Nicholas (Fiancée Ana Laura Giglio) Borell, Brittany (Fiancée’ Terry Fahey) Smith, Evan Smith, Tricia (Bill) Burger, Mandy (Phil) Schneider, Samantha Lewis and Sarah Lewis, great grandchildren Nealon Borell (12), Nash Borell (7), Nathan Vaughn Jr. (10), Layla Lou Ann Fahey (1 ½), Alice Martin (12), Thomas Martin (10), Autumn (Fiancée Zach) Gesierich, Albert (Chelse) Gesierich, Natalie Schneider (15), Sean Schneider (13). Preceded in death by siblings Mary, Dorothy, Catherine, Leo, Frank, James, Mark, Fred and son-in-law Bruce Stafford. A Mass of Christian Burial for Geraldine will be held Thursday, February 29, 2024 at 11:00 AM at Saint Ambrose of Woodbury Catholic Church, 4125 Woodbury Drive, Woodbury, MN 55129, with a visitation 2 hours prior, starting at 9:00 AM.

Gerry had a great time with her lady friends going dancing at the Prom Center on University Avenue in St. Paul. Gary’s (son-in-law) mom Gladys was one of Gerry’s closest friends which would accompany her to the Prom Center and the bingo halls. Gerry loved to play bingo and “O” 75 was her mother’s favorite bingo number. Quality Cafeteria was one of Gerry’s favorite jobs to go and help make the delicious Chicken Pot Pie which she would serve to her favorite customers. The two daughters Donna and Dianne also worked with their mom. Bowling was Gerry’s favorite sport and she was a darn good bowler. Some of the holidays the family would go over to the Midway shopping center and go to the bowling alley and she would win most of the games. Family vacations were to head and go fishing at Uncle John and Aunt Edna’s Lake home. Dad would take all of us out fishing and if we were lucky, we would actually catch a fish. We would also head to Annandale Minnesota to go to Grandma Hanson’s cabin. She was not really our grandma, but she was such a sweet lady we called her grandma. Gerry was strong willed and stubborn at times with that Irish spunk, but she had an enormous heart and loved her friends and family. She was generous, loyal, and loved to take care of the grandchildren when they needed daycare. She was feisty and full to the brim with knowledge gained through all of her life experiences living on the farm. She will be remembered for all the heart she shared with her friends and family. She truly loved each of them and if you knew her, you knew it. When her time came, she carried herself with dignity, strength, and full of love for those who went before her. She will be missed dearly.
