Geraldine "Jerri" Findley

August 13, 1931 — November 16, 2023

Geraldine “Jerri” June Findley, 92, of Waco, TX, passed away Thursday, November 16, 2023. A Celebration of Life will be at 2:00 p.m., Friday, December 1, at Pecan Grove Funeral Home with Dr. Cary Killough officiating. Visitation will be from 1:00 until 2:00 p.m., at the funeral home.
Jerri was born August 13, 1931, in Whitney, TX, to Robert and Daisy (Owens) Gunter. She was a manager at Holiday Inn in Waco for many years. In 1987 she was awarded a four day, all-expense paid trip to San Fransico, California in the “Spirit Continues” nationwide contest from Holiday Inn. Her trip ended with a tour of Napa Valley wine country. Jerri was an avid reader and enjoyed traveling with her family and friends. She followed College Sports teams that her family attended, loved the Dallas Cowboys and NASCAR. She stayed sharp through the years working crossword puzzles. Most importantly she never missed a family event and was always in attendance with her upbeat energy and sense of humor. She was a longtime member of Meadowbrook Baptist Church. She enjoyed staying connected with her family and friends through social media, and faithfully acknowledged each one's birthday and special occasions. She led a full life and loved her family very much.
Jerri was preceded in death by her parents; sister, Evelyn Pitts; her two husbands, Claud E. Dawson, and Isaac “Buddy” Findley; son-in-law, Tom Wedemeyer; and grandchild, Owen Sanders.
She is survived by her children, Phyllis Sanders and husband Mike, Ralph Getman and wife Marta, Ruth Wedemeyer, Melanie Green and husband Larry; sister, Barbara Bostwick; brother, Charles Gunter; Lisa Olson and husband Wendell, Grady Sanders and wife April, Sarah Trainer and husband Trey, Grant Getman, Grace Rebensdorf and husband Dan, Brian Wedemeyer, Mark Wedemeyer and wife Melissa, Stuart Wedemeyer, David Simons and wife Traci, Robert Simons and wife Allison and Angela Boyett and husband Michael; along with numerous great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild, who knew her as “Grannie” or “Gee Gee”.
The family would like to thank Community Healthcare of Texas-Providence Hospice for their compassionate care given to Jerri.
