Geraldine was called to her heavenly home on Sunday, January 24, 2021, at the age of 88. She was born in Whitehall, Louisiana, but resided in Springfield, Louisiana. Geraldine was a dedicated member of St. Margaret Catholic Church for over 50 years where she proudly took part in the various ministries offered by the church. She received a master’s degree in education and pursued her teaching career by lecturing junior and high school students English for over 40 years.

When she had time to herself, she could be found reading a good mystery novel. Geraldine was a loving, caring, and kind person who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. She is survived by her sons, John Sziber Jr., Michael Sziber and Tomothy Sziber; daughters, Anne Sziber Bergeron (Anthony) and Kathleen Sziber and numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
