Geraldine Malinowski

Obituary of Geraldine H. Malinowski

Geraldine was a beloved mother to her 3 children, and grandmother to 8 grandchildren and 5 great-grandchildren. Although she was usually a quiet and reserved homebody, she was a fun-loving woman who had many hobbies and made many great memories during her life.

When she did get out, Geraldine loved nothing more than spending time with her kids and grandkids. They took regular trips to Cedar Point, Darien Lake, and Fantasy Island. They took family trips every summer to one of these favorite road trip destinations.

Her favorite home activities included lots of soap operas – Days of our Lives, General Hospital, and Another World. She loved the music of the Beatles, babysitting her grandkids, and gnomes. Probably her favorite thing to do, however, was play cards. Anytime there was more than a couple people visiting, she whipped out a deck of cards. Scat, 3 Card Monte, and Acey Deucey were some of her favorites. She always carried her change purse (in red, her favorite color!) full of change ready to throw down for card games.
