Following her graduation from high school, Geraldine was employed as the Motor Shop secretary at Halliburton for many years and also performed home health care for Mrs. Esther Halliburton. She loved to play softball. She was a talented guitarist and singer which she continued while living at the nursing home.

She was preceded in death by her parents; the father of her children, William Odus Peeples, Sr; her first grandchild, Cherie Anderson; son-in-law, John Robinson; and siblings: Candy Mash, Charlie Boyer, Mary Brake, and Wanda Boyer.
Geraldine is survived by her children: Cheryl Lynn McLen and husband Rusty of Palestine, TX, William Odus Peeples Jr. and wife Virginia of Lawton, Charles Melvel Peeples of New Town, ND; 8 grandchildren; and 9 great grandchildren. She is also survived by her brothers: Jesse Boyer and wife Carolyn of Comanche, Gwin Boyer and wife Vickie of Azle, TX; sisters: Melba Amerson and husband Thurmon of Comanche, Hattie Brown and husband Robert of Edmond; brother-in-law, Bobby Brake of Duncan; sister-in-law, Shirley Boyer of Duncan; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
Geraldine's family wishes to extend a special thank you to the staff at Wilkins Nursing Home for the compassionate care she was given while she was entrusted in their care. A special note of gratitude to her wonderful roommate, Patricia "Trish" Cummins who always looked out for Geraldine when the family was not able to be there.
