Geraldine Muller, age 66, born in Philadelphia, (Roxborough), Pa. passed away on June 21, 2021, surrounded by her beloved family.
Gerri is survived by siblings Paul (Kathy), Frank (Linda), Chris (Bob Beisel), Marie (Jerry Levinsky), and Bill Muller, and also aunts, cousins, nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. She was predeceased by her parents, Geraldine and Francis Muller; baby sibling Francis F. Muller; and sister Anne (Desiree Fleck).
Gerri attended IHM grade school and Roxborough High School. She earned a Master's of Science in Nursing from Wayne State University as a Clinical Nurse Specialist and a post-Masters Certificate as a Nurse Practitioner, culminating her education.
Gerri dedicated her life to a nursing career for over 30 years in Detroit, Michigan at Beaumont Hospital and Henry Ford Hospital. Despite having both credentials, she loved being a clinical nurse specialist where she ensured that all nursing staff were knowledgeable about the most up-to-date procedures and nursing care related to emergency nursing. She retired from Henry Ford Hospital in August 2020 and moved to Wilmington, Del., to be closer to her family.
Gerri advocated for patients with compassion and kindness. She was recognized for this with many awards and honors throughout her career. In 2016, she was honored with the Michigan Emergency Nurses Association Lifetime Achievement Award. Her passion for nursing advocacy was evident in her active involvement in the Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), where she was an active committee member, chairperson of the state ENA Education Conference and Michigan ENA President (2008).
Always a dedicated nurse, Gerri recently volunteered to administer COVID vaccines through the Delaware Emergency Nurses organization.
Gerri was a very caring, loving and generous person who always saw the best in people. She loved all animals, but especially her precious cats. She will be remembered for her frequent and cheerful laugh, her "can do" attitude and her enthusiastic pleasure in simple things.
Gerri will continue to make a difference by being an organ donor through the Gift of Life Program.
Relatives and friends are invited to celebrate Gerri's life on Monday, June 28, 2021, at Immaculate Heart of Mary Church, 819 Cathedral Road, Philadelphia, Pa. Visitation will begin at 9 a.m., followed by a Mass of Christian Burial at 10:30 a.m. Interment will be private.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions can be made to the causes that Gerri supported: St. Jude Children’s Hospital (stjude.org); Main Line Animal Rescue (mlar.org); or All About Animals Rescue Michigan (allaboutanimals.org).
