GERALDINE MARIE HOWELL Tuesday, August 3, 1937 - Thursday, July 27, 2017
Geraldine M. Howell (Baragary) passed away at the age of 79 on July 27, 2017, at her home in Billings, MO. A longtime resident of Republic, she is survived by her five children, nine grandchildren, and eleven great-grandchildren. Geraldine was born in Leavenworth, Kansas and was preceded in death by her husband John Howell, parents, and three siblings.
Geraldine was an LPN, working in the Head Start program and passionately providing breast cancer awareness as a survivor herself. “Grandma Geri,” as the grandkids called her, opened her heart and home to family and loved spoiling her pets. Known for her sense of humor, feisty personality, and generous spirit, she will be missed dearly.
Visitation is set for Tuesday from 6-8 p.m. at Meadors Funeral Home in Republic. A graveside service will take place at Evergreen Cemetery in Republic at 1 p.m. Wednesday.
