Geraldine "Gerri" Hedlund
 
(Saturday - September 11, 2021 - 10:45) - Geraldine "Gerri" Hedlund of Mesa, Arizona, formerly of Iron Mountain, was born on February 26, 1936, in Iron Mountain, the daughter of Oliver and Elizabeth (Krall) Gribble-Ohmen. Gerri left this earth on August 20, 2021, after fighting a courageous battle with breast cancer. She was under the care of hospice at the time and died peacefully at home with her husband Bruce at her side.

Gerri was a 1954 graduate of Kingsford High School. She married Bruce Hedlund on March 31, 1973 in Florida. She ran Geraldine Hedlund Healthcare Billing Services and was employed at Dickinson County Healthcare System for many years.

Gerri was a vibrant and joyful person and was always positive, even in the face of all the adversity that life brought her way. She was strong, independent, and always energetic, having many passions in her life, including figure skating, singing, fashion and golf.

Gerri is survived by her loving husband, Bruce; a stepdaughter, Ericka (John) Sleeter; three sisters, Elizabeth (Dennis) Anderson, Rita Major, and Janet (David) Loring; several grandchildren; and several nieces and a nephew.

Along with her parents, Gerri was preceded in death by a stepfather, Bertel "Mike" Ohmen; a daughter, Terri Jo; a son, David; a stepson, Edward; and a brother-in-law, Stanley Major.

Gerri was cremated and her remains are to be interred in Michigan. Private family services will be held. Burial will be in Iron Mountain Cemetery Park. A Celebration of Life to honor Gerri will be held in Arizona at a later date.
