    Maureen and Family –

    I celebrate Marian’s life here on earth. She was a joy to know and our biggest softball fan. You know my heart is with you as you share the treasured stories of your time together.

  • Cecilia Cunningham

    Dear Sister Maureen and family,

    We have lost a great Golden Saint from Aquinas and the CJC! We all had so much fun together at Aquinas events. Recent years had been more challenging, yet her sweet and kind disposition was still intact. It does seem so fitting to have her leave her earthly home with those she loved so much tor her heavily home with the Lord she served with love. My prayers for every member of the family.

  • James Thrall

    Marian and Frank influenced so many people that the world lost a great leader and model. Her smile, personality and LOVE made everyone who knew her feel better. The world is a better place because of her.

  • Shelbie

    I always considered Marian my grandmother. She was the sweetest and kindest soul and I could always go to her for some calm and love. She was always happy to see me and always willing to listen to me when I needed someone to talk to. I miss her everyday and there won’t be a day that goes by that I do not think about her. She was so so loved.

  • Mary Ann Findling

    Sheila, so sorry for your loss. Keeping you and your family in my prayers.

  • Tim Wallace

    Praying for all Geary’s at this sad but also joyful time- may we all live as did she. Peacebe with you!

  • Bill Collins

    It has been decades since we have chatted with the Geary Family. The Collins Family shares your pain in the loss of your mom. Great memories of playing in the neighborhood and having a pb&j at lunch at your house so we could go back to baseball in the back yard. Your mom treated us like one of the family and made sure we followed the rules. An awesome neighbor hood to grow up in and your mom and dad were a big part of it. Your mom will be missed here but is enjoying a great reunion in heaven. Our prayers are with you all today, Sincerely Bill, Jackie, Joan Collins

  • Sue VanHaren

    Pat, Sister Maureen and all the Geary family I am so sorry for your loss. Your mother and grandmother was a a true example of what it means to live a life of faith, love and kindness. I trust she rests in peace and deep in all your hearts.

  • Jim and Sandy Rademaker

    Sandy and I offer our Sympathy and Prayers to the Geary family. We know Marian lived a long and fruitful life and was a blessing to all whom she knew. Her love and care for others was evident in her greeting. She must be enjoying her eternal award for all the good she has done in this world.

  • Bill Dunn

    Mrs. Greary did a great job raising her kids, and she was always very kind to the friends of her kids. She was a wonderful Lady.

  • Tina M Larson

    My thoughts and prayers are with you, Sheila, and your family during this special time….I know from experience that it’s hard to have your mom pass into God’s care…. Much love, XO =:)

  • Laurie Sefton

    Sr. Maureen, Tim and all the Geary family,
    May you be surrounded by love and comforted by warm memories of your wonderful mom. She was an amazing, gentle woman and her strength and love continues in each of you. I hold you close in prayer.

  • Maureen Geglio

    Dearest Pat, Mike, Tim, S. Maureen, Sheila and Kevin, I Just participated in your Mom’s Mass of Resurrection. Fr. Lenny’s words resonated with my memories of Marian. The list of activities you noted in the obituary is a standard that only Mrs. Geary could set and thankfully for the rest of us with fragile egos, it did take her 101 years. How she cherished you and others was so amazing. How you cherished and loved your Mom to her passing is truly a tribute to her legacy. I’m grateful for the generous time she gave to my family and personally to me. I am also grateful that I can say I know each of you in ways that follow in your Mom’s admirable way. God is blessing you and holding you in that almighty palm of comfort! Hope she doesn’t mind but my son, Joseph, and I are contributing to planting trees. Mrs. Geary would appreciate the care of Earth.
