Geraldine B. (Cooper) Cantrall

December 3, 1948 ~ September 17, 2023 (age 74) 74 Years Old


Our beloved mother, Geraldine Cantrall, passed away on September 17, 2023, at the age of 74, after a 5-year battle with cancer. Geraldine was born December 3,1948, to Samuel and Laura (Vint) Cooper in Rhinelander, WI. Geraldine was always surrounded by family as she had six brothers: Wally, Victor, Paul, Keith, Clarence, and a twin brother, Gerald. She also had five sisters: Marion, Henrietta, Helen, Francis, and Luella. She also had many sisters and brothers-in-law, nieces and nephews.

Geraldine worked at McCain foods for 23 years, where she retired from. She was known for her giving nature whether it was cooking for others or giving a lending ear to someone. Geraldine's faith in the Lord was never far from her heart or mind. She was very active in her church, First Assembly of God of Waupaca, and she enjoyed many crafts and gardening.

Geraldine has been the Matriarch of the family.  She has always planned yearly family reunions to ensure the family always remained close. She also had many traditions that were highlights to the family. One of these were Christmas ornaments that were hand-picked by her for her 14 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.

Geraldine was preceded in death by her parents, her son, Daniel Cantrall, granddaughter, Brittany Bottine, sisters, Marion and Luella, and brothers, Victor, Paul, and Wally. She is survived by her sons, Donnie (Sandy), Sam (Rhonda), and Mike (Tammy), 14 grandchildren: Ashley, Terry, Jessica, Amanda, Amber, Josh, Nathan, Megan, Ali, Joseph, Brandon, Michael, Tyler, and Crystal and 21 great-grandchildren, as well as many nieces, nephews, and her loving dog, Bear. The family would like to thank Ashley Searvogel for taking care of her Grandma Geraldine in time of need.
