Geraldine Fugate, 83, passed away peacefully at her home on Wednesday, Sept. 22, 2021. She was born Oct. 3, 1937, in Indianapolis, Indiana, to Lonnie Morphis and Estelle Birdwell Morphis.
She grew up in the Edgewood area while attending Edgewood High School and worked for over 20 years at My Credit Union. On June 8, 1957, she married her true love, E. J. Fugate and together they started a wonderful family together.
Geraldine was Baptist by faith. Sewing kept Geraldine occupied many hours when she wasn’t joking with someone or making plans with her family. She liked to cook, tell jokes and delighted in bluegrass music that would bring the whole group together for some well cherished family time. Geraldine loved to laugh, enjoy life and was devoted to her family but, it was her grand and great-grandchildren that kept her thriving from day to day. Geraldine will be greatly missed by all that knew and loved her.
Geraldine is survived by her daughter, Suzanne Parker and husband Kenny; grandchildren, Cory and Brook Goswick, Cody and Cameron Goswick, Colt and Brittany Goswick and Ryan and Kim Parker; great-grandchildren Grady, Brynlee, Kennedi, Leighton, Paisley, Gavin, Austin, Alex, Makenzie, Ava, Amelia, Anna, Baby Boy Goswick due to arrive in November, niece, Janie and nephew, Wyatt.
