Geraldine (Geri) Wulf passed away on Tuesday, October 20, 2020 at Agrace Hospice in Fitchburg. Geri was born on February 3rd, 1925 in Wiota Township. She was the youngest of eight children born to Nim and Caroline (Rude) Seffrood.

Geri graduated from South Wayne High School in 1943 and Lutheran Deaconess School of Nursing in Chicago, receiving her RN in 1946. She married Dwight Wulf in 1947 and together they had three children. She lived in Bellwood, Illinois and the Chicago area for over 20 years. She worked as an industrial nurse for BorgWarner and then for 16 years at Westlake Hospital in Melrose Park. In 1970, she and her children moved to Monroe. She worked for many years at St. Clare Hospital. In 1983, she traveled to Saudi Arabia and was employed in the postpartum department of a hospital in Tabuk. She returned to Monroe in 1985 and worked at St. Clare Hospital until her retirement.

Geri had an adventurous spirit and loved to travel. She enjoyed visiting many countries, including Norway, Sweden, The Netherlands, Greece, Jordan, Kenya, Australia and Mexico. She also traveled to many states within the US. Geri enjoyed knitting and crocheting and spent countless hours making many cherished items for family and friends throughout the years.

She loved to tell jokes and share stories and memories with friends and loved ones. She often told about the many miles she rode her Shetland pony, Beauty. Her job was to lead the cows to pasture near the one-room country schoolhouse and after school lead them back to the farm.

Geri is survived by three children: Douglas (Jean) of Janesville, Heidi (Bradley) Joslyn of Manchester, ME and Eric (Martha) of Madison as well as four grandchildren: Laura Shain, Michelle Wulf, Sarah Garant, and Paul Joslyn; one great grandchild, Charlotte; and many nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held at a later date. Burial will take place in West Wiota Lutheran Cemetery. SHRINER HAGER GOHLKE Funeral Home is assisting the family.

The family would like to thank Agrace Hospice in Janesville and Fitchburg for their care and support.
