Geri was born May 14, 1930 in Mankato, MN to Clarence and Mae (Bishop) Langford.  At age 13 she became a nanny until she was 16 in Fairmont.  She worked at Millies Café for many years and then at Lloyd’s Truck-Stop, both in Fairmont.  She moved to Mankato and worked at the Mankato House in the laundry department, McGowan Sign and Flag Company, and then for 12 years at Randall’s Deli in Mankato, where she retired.

One of Geri’s favorite past times, when her health allowed was fishing. She lived at Gus Johnson Plaza, and then Koppen Gardens for many years. In both places she had many friends, and was loved and respected by all who knew her. She was also the care taker/master key holder at both Gus Johnson and Koppen Gardens.

She is survived by 3 children, Teresa Lynn Bicknase, Suzzette Maude Bogenschutz, Kent David Thomas (AKA Thomas Steven Lenz); 10 grandchildren; 13 great grandchildren; brothers and sisters, Dennis and Clarine Langford, Ellen and Melvin Herme, John and Eileen Langford, Roger Langford, and Crystal and Jeff Blickem.  She was preceded in death by her grandson, Michael Craddock; brother, Roger Langford; and her dog, Pepper.

My husband and I would like to express or sincere sympathy to the family and friends of your beloved Geri. Although we never had the opportunity to meet Geri we wanted to share with you comfort from Gods word found in John 5:28,29. Here we are given the wonderful hope of the resurrection of our dear loved ones, here on earth just as Lazarus was in John 11. Have comfort also in knowing that our Heavenly Father expresses his loving compassion for all of us when someone we love dies. (Psalm 34:18) Remember, share your memories with those who surround you for the memories that are shared are the ones truly cherished especially by those who shared them with you, may they bring you a sense of peace and joy to your hearts as you begin to heal. Take care of yourselves and each other during this very difficult time.
