Geraldine loved her family and was generous and supportive.  The only child of the late Marie (Sima) and Frank Kutman, she grew up in Stickney at a time when there were few homes and a farm nearby.  Speaking only Czech when she entered Kindergarten, she graduated from Haley Elementary School in Stickney and Morton East High School in Cicero.  After graduation, she worked at the Sears Roebuck head quarters as a secretary.  She met the love of her life, Donald Coates at a Sokol dance and married in 1949.  They moved to her current home in Forest View after the birth of her 2 children.   Always a strong advocate for education, she was active and involved in many of their school activities. She returned to the workforce and was the Bursar at Loyola University Medical School until her retirement.

Gerry loved to celebrate her Czech heritage with food, family, friends and membership in Sokol, CSA, The Czech Garden Club, the Czech Genealogy Society, and more recently, the Stickney Golden Agers Club.  A lifetime member of Sokol, she fondly recalled stories of going to various Sokol leadership camps throughout the Midwest, the camaraderie she had with fellow Sokol members and actively participated in Sokol classes well into her early eighties.
