Geri enjoyed taking care of the books for the family cattle buying business and later started her own daycare. Taking care of her family and the numerous daycare children gave her the greatest joy! Geri had the biggest heart for the children and they could never do any wrong. Spending time with family and friends was always at the forefront of her life.
She is survived by her daughters, Susie (Dale) Little Soldier, & Sherrie (Toby) Kuntz of Mandan and their children Summer and Stetson, all of Mandan, ND; son-in-law, Randy Fitchner of Rapid City, SD and his son Cooper (Carly) Fitchner of Denver, CO; one brother, Kelly (Karen) Fleck; four sisters, Lucy (Jim) Hatzenbuhler, Helen Mischel, Mary Schmidt, Lavonne Fleck.
