Geraldine Mae Meinzen Foulk
This is my lovely aunt, my mother's sister. Her given name was Geraldine but she chose to be called Jeree most of her life. She was born on this day in 1918, the 2nd of 4 daughters born to William Carl Robert and Emma (Bickerstaff) Meinzen.
Aunt Jeree visited us but we didn't see her as often as we saw the other aunts so I feel like I don't know her as well as the other two aunts. During most of my childhood she lived a little further away. She worked as a beautician in Newton Falls, Ohio, and was married and divorced twice. I think her life was somewhat difficult. It ended abruptly on September 24, 1984, the year she would have turned 66. She left 3 adult children and 3 sisters.
This is a birthday post for her, just so she's not forgotten. Happy Birthday, Aunt Jeree.
