Geraldine C. Brosnan, "Gerry", Janesville, WI (1928-2014)
February 13, 1928 - February 6, 2014
Geraldine C. Brosnan "Gerry" passed peacefully on Thursday Feb. 6, 2014. Gerry was born to the late William and Frances Patt on Feb. 13, 1928, in Marshfield, WI. She spent a majority of her life laughing with her late husband and muse, John E. Brosnan "Jack", in Afton WI. She, later, moved to Janesville, WI. Gerry loved music, dancing, walking barefoot, making snow angels, playing cards and bingo. She loved to laugh and joke around. Gerry was an optimist and a dreamer! She often spoke of robbing banks, sky diving, and flying. She talked about her extreme fortune with her health, her friends and family.
Gerry is survived by her baby sister, Shirley (James) Brown of St. Paul, MN; two daughters, Jodie Silbaugh and Cheryl (Thomas) Frei; two sons, Bryan (Nancy) Brosnan and Patrick (Tammie) Brosnan; many grandchildren; and great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband; two sisters, Edna Heiting, and Olive Walters.
Gerry detested funerals, saying always that when she left this world, she wanted her loved ones to have a party to celebrate the life she felt she was so lucky to live! On that note, we will be gathering in the LOWER LEVEL OF GARDEN COURT APARTMENTS, 208 N. Main St., Janesville, WI, on Saturday, Feb. 22nd, from Noon until 2 p.m. in celebration of the Love and Laughter Gerry shared with all of us.
