Condolence & Memory Journal


To Peter and family, I was so sorry to learn of Geraldine's untimely passing. Although we had lost touch over the years I have nothing but happy memories of our times together. We were students in Derry and then we spent a year as flatmates in Dublin with friends which was a home from home. She had such a generous spirit, and she was a kind, funny ,witty, vivacious and intelligent lady it was a pleasure to be in her company.
Please accept my sincere condolences to yourself, your sons and to Geraldine's sister Mary and her brothers.

I was saddened to hear about Geraldine's death. I was in the same year as Geraldine ..We trained together in Altnagelvin hospital Londonderry in the early 70s. Geraldine had beautiful dark hair,an infectious smile / laugh, a funny intelligent student colleague. After our student days,we lost contact but I knew a little about where she was through another person in our year. It was lovely to look through the picture book.I remember you Peter from Derry days with Geraldine..You have 2 handsome sons.
My condolences to you all at this time.

Dear Peter, Colm, Conor, Kate, Clare, Ryan, and all the family.
We are so saddened by the passing of our beloved Geraldine. Our hearts and sympathy go out to Peter and all the family for your profound loss. Geraldine was a beautiful person with a heart full of love, joy, and kindness. Every time we met, it was with a hug and embrace of love and affection. Her strong faith with our Lord inspired us. Together with Peter she brought the Seton Couples together and made us a part of the group, we will never forget her. We will keep you all in our prayers and thoughts as you grieve our beloved Geraldine.

Peter, Conor and Colm - It is still surreal that she is in heaven. Beyond a doubt, she's watching over and protecting more now than she could here on earth. There will be such a significant void in our future gatherings without her laugh, excitement and love. But we will carry her in our hearts forever. I've already started asking myself in situations "What would Geraldine do?" She was an amazing mentor and example of what a Christian should be. She loved on every single person she met. While we can't take away your pain right now, we can add our love... and that we'll do. Always remember her friends are only a phone call away. We love you and thank you for sharing her with us. We are ALL better for having known her.

Peter, Colm and Connor - I am so saddened by the passing of Geraldine. I have many fond memories that I will keep forever - Thanksgiving dinners, barbecues and just the occasional visit. I always enjoyed our conversations over a good meal. A quick wit and always smiling is how I chose to remember her. My condolences my friends.

Posted by Greg Roberts - Tucson, AZ - Family Friend   March 26, 2020

Peter, Colm & Conor, my heart is heavy with sadness. Geraldine was such a beautiful person - inside and out. I loved when she would pop into the office to share a cup of coffee with Peter. Her smile was contagious and you couldn't help but take a few moments to speak with her. May the constant love of caring friends soften your sadness. May cherished memories bring you moments of comfort. May lasting peace surround your grieving hearts.

Peter and Colm and Conor, it is with great sadness that we hear of the passing of your Mom. She was a perfectly lovely woman who spoke up for what she believed in while seen by us to be always kind and charming.

I am so sorry that Geraldine has passed. Last lent I spent most Fridays with her in a Rosary in faith-in-friendship meeting after morning Mass that she planned and lead at St. Elizabeth Seton with Martina. She always made me feel so welcomed and special and always had so much personality, insight into our faith and struggles, and love to give. I will miss her and am sad realizing that I won't get to see her anymore, but know that she is the lucky one no longer suffering and with the Lord. I offer my condolences to her family. God bless you. Monique Rooney

So sorry for your family's loss. While the encounters were few they were impactful with her smile and laugh. Your wife was one of the first people I encountered at my first company Christmas party through Bedford. She welcomed me very warmly and I will always be very grateful for our exchanges. Your family is in our thoughts and prayers.

Mo dheirfuir Geraldine, you were a great wife and partner to your beloved husband Peter; a wonderful, loving, mother to your beautiful sons Colm and Conor, whose humanity is a reflection of the values you gave them. One of your proudest roles in life was being a doting granny who loved your grandkids, Clare and Ryan, to pieces. Barbara and I will alway thank you for loving and treating our sons / your nephews Brendan and Michael as your own.You loved and were loved, and a stranger would not be a stranger with you for long. You lived your faith like no one else I know. As they say in the language of our beloved homeland Ireland "Is gra Liom thu go deo agus beamact leat go bhfeicfidh me aris thu. Slan. Ted

Geraldine was not only an Angel here on earth, she is now an Angel of God looking down on us all.
Her Warmth and Love was felt by everyone that she met, especially those of us with whom she worked .
My Heart is broken and sad knowing that I shall never hear her voice, see her smiling face, or have one of her great hugs.
But my heart will heal in time with her in it.
My Love and Sympathy to Peter and the entire Kelly Family

I will always remember how loving and welcoming Geraldine was. Opening her home to me for a whole summer and treating me like a family member. Always remembering to reach out to me for big events in my life and going out of her way to visit me whenever I was near by. Geraldine lived her life exemplifying Christ's love and I feel blessed to have been on the receiving end of that at times. You are missed and I will always remember your generous spirit.

We are deeply saddened by the loss of Geraldine. The mother of our friend, Peter and Geraldine welcomed us into their home for Thanksgiving during a year when we were far from our own families. Geraldine always made space for us at her table and showed us Christ's love in embodied and tangible ways. We will never forget her.
