Geraldine E. (Brundage)'s Story
Mrs. Geraldine E. (Brundage) Soper, 75, of Groveland, Mass., beloved wife of Douglas M. Soper, died Friday, Sept. 1, 2017, at Beverly Hospital with her family by her side.
Born on November 24, 1941, in Boston, she was the daughter of the late Harry and Martha (Thomas) Brundage. She was raised and educated in Beverly, Mass.
A true love story, Geri knew after her first date with Doug that he was her soul mate and that they would be married. She often wrote him little notes and shared her unconditional love with him. She was a devoted and loving wife, mother, and grandmother. She took immense pride in raising her children and providing a warm and loving home for her husband and family.
An excellent cook and baker, Geri's delicious creations were always a treat to those she shared them with. She expressed her love through her cooking and would often bake goodies for family, friends and those who showed her kindness. Geri enjoyed spending her time with her grandchildren as well as crocheting, knitting, reading, and taking long walks with her beloved husband. She enjoyed her travels, especially to Ogunquit, Maine, but always enjoyed returning to her home of over 49 years in Groveland. A true animal lover, Geri had many furry companions over the years and always had a soft spot for any animal. Above all else family was paramount in her life. She will be deeply missed.
Geraldine is survived by her loving husband of 54 years, Douglas M. Soper of Groveland; her son, Douglas A. Soper and his wife, Ellen of Nashua, N.H.; her daughter, Doreen M. Nicosia and her fiancé, Spencer Shepard of Merrimac, Mass.; her two grandchildren, Jordan and Cole Nicosia; and her sister, Helen Simpson of Beverly; as well as many nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at a later date. Assisting the family with the arrangements is the Peterson-O'Donnell Funeral Home, 167 Maple St., (Route 62), Danvers.
