Being in my first Drawing & Painting class was so exciting. Little did I know that the person seated next to me would become a dear, dear friend. Germaine was beautiful both inside and out, and a true blessing to me.

The delightful cards she'd send, copies of meticulously-drawn flowers, birds & Christmas scenes, will always be a reminder of Germaine's thoughtfulness, and the many, many hours we spent in class together!

Because of these things and so much more, the memory of her will always live on in my heart, and bring a smile to my face.

Dear Stephanie & Denise and loved ones,
How wonderful to have had your mom with you all those years enjoying her company & sharing her with all the children & grand children & great grandchildren & great great granddaughter Clara Germaine!
Your mom always ran a very busy household in her Jessup home. I remember frosting birthday cakes in your dining room; simmering duck, fresh fish, rabbit, or venison on the kitchen stove; and admiring your beautiful Christmas decorations, toy trains & tree displayed in your large plate glass front window. I didn’t realize your mom’s artistic talent until much later in life after receiving her carefully hand drawn & colored greeting or thank you cards.
I do believe your mom grew more beautiful as she aged & I’m so fortunate to have enjoyed her many birthday parties where she was always smiling & happy to be amongst family & friends. Germaine will be greatly missed but her spirit will remain fresh as we reminisce with gusto all those memories & photos of your mom’s precious life! With love & condolences,
Frankie Shannon

Dear Stephanie and Denise and all your extended family,
I have many fond memories of growing up next door to your wonderful family. We had great times playing together at your Jessup home. These were fun times playing together both outdoors and indoors during our entire childhood. Your mother, Germaine and father, John were wonderful parents to welcome me into your loving home. I enjoyed seeing Germaine when she visited my mother in her Sarasota vacation home. She was still interested in all the good times that she shared with my parents. Your mother became more beautiful every year and she was a treasure to all who knew her. You were lucky to have her with you for so many years. Our condolences and deepest sympathy to all, Connie & Bohdan Bulawka

Germaine seemed to always have a welcoming smile on her face whenever I was at her home. So gracious. A very lucky woman to live her days with family all around in the home - granddaughter, great grand children and her great-great grandchild before leaving this earth. May God Bless.
She has left quite a hole in the family! However, memories of her will help mend a bit.
My sincere sympathies to the family.
