Geraldine was born June 17, 1921, in Cameron to Charles and Dora Parker. She attended Washington Grade School in Park Falls and Waukesha High School. She earned her GED in 1965.

Gerry was married to Lawrence Kundinger at Saint Anthony's Church in Park Falls on Nov. 16, 1939. This union of 59 years produced three children: Sally (James Winkels), Larry (Lexy) Kundinger and Dale (Lynne) Kundinger. She is further survived by seven grandchildren: Jim and Jess Winkels; Jeff, Paul and Stacy Kundinger; and Travis and Derek Kundinger. There are also nine great-grandchildren: Justin and Megan Winkels; Lily, Hannah and Ellissa Winkels; J.C. Kundinger; Payge and Mayce Widmann; and Madeline Kundinger.

Mrs. Kundinger worked at Johnson Hills in Wisconsin Rapids for 17 years before retiring in Park Falls in 1988.

She was a caring mother and grandmother and an excellent bridge player. She crocheted beautiful bedspreads in addition to sewing many creative stitchery pictures and making other craft projects.

Gerry moved back to the Marshfield area in 2001 to be near her family.

In August, she moved to the Bethel rehab and nursing facility in Arpin, where she received excellent care from their staff members. "Our heartfelt thanks to everyone who made Mother's stay comfortable."

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, Lawrence; one brother, Claude Parker; five sisters, Hazel Wahlstrom, Beatrice Landgraf, Alice Hilgart, Lorraine Schantini and Lila Rubey; and a sister, Bernice Maynard. Memorials may be designated to the American Lung Association.

"I'll be waiting on the far side banks of Jordan, I'll be waiting in that far-off promised land.

And when I see you coming, I will rise up with a shout,

And come running to you arms outstretched and reaching for your hand."
