Geraldine Wright Obituary

Geraldine Foston Wright was born May 6, 1944, to the parentage of Ed Foston, Jr. and Arline Jones Foston.

Geraldine was a proud graduate of J.F. Boddie High School, Class of 1962. After receiving her education, she was employed at Central State Hospital. She retired after thirty-five years of faithful and dedicated service. She was also employed with the Baldwin County School System as a Paraprofessional for nine years.

As a member, she served as a Deaconess, Ministry Leader (overseeing the Food and Flower Committees), and the Usher Board. Not only was she active in the church, she was also a member of the local Social and Savings Club. Geraldine was a kind, gentle person who never met a stranger.
