Geraldine Lee (Gerry) Crites was born November 30, 1936 to the late Al and Florence (Knigge) Wirth. She met her hero and love of her life when they were 12 years old and married Carl Edward Crites in November 1952, the shared fifty five years together. Three children were born: Glen Edward, Glenda Lee and Timothy Lynn.
Gerry was preceded in death by her parents; husband, Carl; sons, Glenn and Timothy; one granddaughter and one great granddaughter.
Gerry is survived by her daughter, Glenda; five grandchildren, Brandy (Brian) Daniels, Matthew Crites, Tanya Evans, Natasha Evans, Gwenn Frey, seven great grandchildren, Gracie, Ali, Eli, Cammi, Stephanie Brezzi; daughter in law, Kris Crites; son –in-laws, Cletus Evans and Terry Wright; grandson-in- law, Ken Elliot, one niece, one nephew and many other Christian friends.

I am so sorry about Gerry dieing. I remember her and her husband were missionaries for some time going to different parks and ministering to people. She will be greatly missed but she is in the hands of Jesus resting with him forever.
