Obituary of Geraldine Hunter (née Krulik)
Early Sunday morning, December 3rd 2023, Geraldine went peacefully to be with her Lord and Saviour at age 86.
Born in Regina, Saskatchewan on April 18th, 1937, Geraldine moved with her family to Hamilton, Ontario and then to Niagara Falls where she attended Maple Street Public School, N.F.C.V.I., and graduated as a Registered Nurse from GNGH in 1959.
She married Herman, the love of her life in 1959 and together they raised 3 children, Cheryl (Scott), Darlene (Jonathan), and Bruce. Geraldine had great love for each of her Grandchildren: Hunter, Rachelle, Luke, Holly, Logan and Caleb. Dear sister of Betty and Rudy (Linda). She was predeceased by her sister Hilda, by her brothers-in-law Abram and Harry, and also by her sister-in-law Karen.
Geraldine’s desire was to share the love and compassion she received from her Lord and Saviour with others around her. She demonstrated this by opening her heart, home, and kitchen to many.
Geraldine was a life-long learner. She enjoyed downhill skiing, synchronized swimming, cake decorating, various crafts and sewing projects, piano lessons and took further courses in nursing. She loved to read but mostly loved reading and studying the Bible, advancing her knowledge with correspondence courses in the New and Old Testaments. One of her favourite verses was, “I am the resurrection and the life. Anyone who believes in me will live, even after dying.”
Special thanks to her family doctor, Dr. James Woodland and Dr. Huma Qawi and the Palliative Care Oncology team at the Niagara Health St. Catharines Site for their compassionate and outstanding care.
A Celebration of Life service will be held at Grace Gospel Church, 5855 Valley Way, Niagara Falls, on December 16th at 11:00am. There will be visitation before the service at 10:00am as well as following the service.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be given to Mission Eurasia, an organization that was dear to Geraldine’s heart. Donations can be made directly online or in care of Grace Gospel Church (designated to Mission Eurasia). Online condolences may be shared on Geraldine’s tribute page found at EssentialsNiagara.com
