Geraldine D (Bacon) Kilgore, age 92, of Ronks, PA, went to be with our Lord and Savior on Good Friday
morning, April 10, 2020. Geraldine had been a resident at Conestoga View Nursing home for over a year
to be cared for as her dementia progressed.

Geraldine, also known as Gerri or Deanie, was born in Airville, PA, on August 21, 1927.
Geraldine graduated from Lower Chanceford High School in 1945, and then was a graduate of Temple
University where she obtained her dental hygienist license. She was employed by several dental offices
over the years, with Belmont Dental of York being her last employment. Geraldine had a passion for
flowers and such a gift of gardening. She also loved to watch birds and spent many hours fishing in the
Susquehanna River. Geraldine was a member of New Covenant Community Church, Delta, PA. She was
the matriarch of our large and growing family. She had an amazing love for the family and loved family
gatherings. She possessed both physical and inward beauty, but most astounding was her love for Jesus
and eagerness to share Him with anyone and everyone. She was very faithful to pray for all of her

Geraldine was preceded in death by her father and mother, Carl and Mimi Bacon, a stepmother,
Beatrice Hively Bacon, and her only sibling, Helen Bacon Keller. Left to honor Gerri and remember her
love, is first and foremost her loving and devoted husband of 72.5 years, Donald E Kilgore, Ronks, PA,
who is a retired Pastor with whom she partnered for many years in the ministry and served by teaching
Sunday School, playing the organ and singing in the choir. She also is survived by her 7 Children: a son
Lanny married to Jocie, Airville, PA; a son Danny married to Jacqueline, Clermont, FL; a son Bob married
to Nancy, Brogue, PA; an only daughter, Donna married to Jack Coleman, Ronks, PA; a son Louis married
to Laura, Franklin Lakes, NJ; a son Rudy married to Brenda, Felton, PA; a son Ron married to Lisa, New
Providence, PA; 33 grandchildren, 46 great grandchildren and 3 great-great grandchildren.

Considering the current situation, private services will be held for immediate family members only. The
family is planning a big celebration of Geraldine’s life for later in the year.

Geraldine will be laid to rest at Chanceford Cemetery, Airville, PA.

One of the most important things that I can say about my mother is here passion for God and the gospel of Jesus Christ. Her persistent prayer was that all her off-spring would have a personal relationship with Jesus and know the joy of being filled with HIS Spirit.
