Geraldine Evadne Smith was born February 23, 1946 to George and Amanda August in Belize City, Belize, Central America, and spent her childhood years in Belize City and Mango Creek, Stann District, Belize. She returned to Belize City to pursue her secondary education at St. Hilda’s College, where she participated in several extracurricular activities, and was a good softball player. She was known as one of the most powerful hitters on her softball team.

Upon graduating from high school in 1964, she started teaching as a Pupil Teacher at St. John’s Primary School on Albert Street in Belize City. This was the beginning of a long and rewarding career as a teacher until her retirement in 2005. She attended the Teachers’ College in Belize City where she completed the requirements as set by the College of Preceptors, United Kingdom, to become a certified teacher. Geraldine emigrated from Belize in 2005 to live in California, USA with her daughter, DeAnne, and granddaughter Maya.

Geraldine was partial to a nice meal – not missing an opportunity to gather with family and friends – to celebrate a birthday or just for the pleasure of dining with others. Not only did she love a good meal, but she was a very good cook. Throughout most of her adult life, she continued to improve her talents in the kitchen by attending numerous classes, whether it was to learn new techniques in food preparation, cake decorating, and handicraft. She enjoyed sharing her newly learned cooking and baking techniques and skills with those around her.

It was a joy and a privilege to have her in our lives. She will be greatly missed. May she rest in eternal peace.

“I have fought the good fight, I have finished the course, I have kept the faith…” (2 Timothy 4: 7-8)
