On November 21, 2019 at 2:04 pm Gerardine “Gerri” Mae Vosbein Hull gained her wings surrounded by her loved ones. When she reached the Pearly Gates of Heaven she ran into the loving arms of her late husband, soulmate, best friend and the love of both her earthly and eternal life, Lawrence “LD” Hull. Those left behind to cherish her memory, continue her never-ending acts of kindness and to finish aggravating people, include her daughters Diane Porretto and Kimberlyn Diehl, her sons (as she never considered them in-laws), David Diehl, Stephen Porretto and Eric Daigle, grandsons Warren Farrell Jr and his wife Sophie, whom she loved as her granddaughter, Benjamin Diehl, great grandson Zane Farrell and great granddaughter Evangeline Farrell due in January. She is also survived by her nieces Margaret Garceau, Carolyn Groner, Carolyn Monte and Madeleine Vosbein. Her nephews Henry Vosbein, Phillip Vosbein, and Fischer Monte. She is also survived by her companion of 16 years Larry Geiger. She is also survived by several nieces and nephews on her husband's side of the family. She was preceded in death by her parents Henry Albert Vosbein and Gerardine Holtz Vosbein, her older brother Henry Vosbein and older sister Patricia Vosbein. She was a member of the Ladies League of St. Jude in the 1970s. She owned Larry's Party Novelties in the late 1980s. Together with her husband she started the Late Comers Irish Club and paraded in the St. Patrick's Day Parade for over 45 years and also the Irish Italian Parade. She was a parishioner of St. Edward the Confessor Church and a member of First Presbyterian Church of Jefferson where she volunteered in the food Bank. She started Gerri's Homeless Corner collecting coats, blankets and necessities for the homeless. She will be remembered for her generous spirit, kind heart, 9 lives and if we are to truly be honest her fiery temper. Our deepest gratitude to the Staff of the 5th floor, ICU, ICU Step Down and Respiratory Departments of Lakeview Hospital in Covington, La for their compassion in their treatment of our mother.

Aunts geggi, you will truly be missed. I have memories of riding on the float on st patty’s day and my favorite as a little girl being at your house watching the parades on tv and the beads magically coming through the tv. May you Rest In Peace. Say hello to pawpaw and my sweet dad for me.
Love
Carolyn

How do I even begin to say goodbye to you? I know it isn't really goodbye it's more like see ya on the other side...but I'm so lost. I took those million calls a day for granted. I kept thinking you really had unlimited lives. You and I had our adventures and fun! Many many escapades, my love. You taught me how to be a mother and a grandmother. You showed me what it meant to be selfless. I know that because of you I'm a better person. No one knows the true sacrifices you made for us. You just keep riding that train in Kennah!! For as long as I breathe you will be remembered. I love you mommy.
