MORTON – Geraldine O. “Geri” Neukomm, 92, of Morton, passed away Saturday, December 3, 2022, at Apostolic Christian Restmor in Morton.
She was born on July 11, 1930, in Cissna Park, Ill., to Ezra and Ollie (Bucher) Feller. Geri married Alvin Neukomm on June 10, 1951, in Cissna Park, Ill. He survives.
Also surviving are her children, Jan (Glenda) Neukomm of Morton, Becky (Bruce) Sauder of Morton, Beth (Denny) Mott of Morton, Carol (Doug) Getz of Morton and Sara (Greg) Getz of Ft. Wayne, Ind.; 15 grandchildren, Alex (Brittany) Neukomm, Julie (Chad) Herman, Andrea (Traever) Guingrich, Todd (Wendy) Sauder, Jeff (Chelby) Sauder, Tammy (Jeremy) Hodel, Sandy (Andrew) Rassi, Laura (Nathan) Wiegand, Erin (Andy) Witzig, Casey (Katie) Getz, Staci (Rodney) Aberle, Shane (Ellen) Getz, April (Brian) Diaz, Matt (Sarah Beth) Getz and Drew Getz; 57 great grandchildren; and three siblings, Donald (Judy) Feller of Morton, Todd (Karen) Feller of Peachtree City, Ga. and Joan (Fritz) Waldbeser of Cissna Park, Ill.
She was preceded in death by two brothers, Lynn and Dale and three sisters, Loretta Bauer, Elna Grimm and Dona Grimm.
Geri and Al were blessed to see their legacy of faith carried forward in their children, grandchildren and great grandchildren as each came to know Jesus. Geri’s spiritual gift of hospitality was rooted in her love of people. She never knew a stranger and welcomed all who came to church and her home. She showcased her baking skills around their dining table blessing family, friends and countless strangers from five continents. Her children appreciated her quick and efficient ways. Her presentation was even more important. She demonstrated these qualities by gifting her grandchildren with needlepoint masterpieces.
She was a member of Morton Apostolic Christian Church in Morton, where a funeral service will be held at 10 a.m. on Saturday, December 10, 2022, with church ministers officiating. Visitation will be from 4 to 7 p.m. Friday, December 9, at Knapp-Johnson Funeral Home and Cremation Center in Morton.
