Obituary for GERALDINE THERESA GRAY

GERALDINE THERESA GRAY was born on July 10, 1938 to the late Frank George Hall and Annie Holland Hall in Paris, Maryland. She departed this life on Monday, February 24, 2020 at the Burnett Hospice House surrounded by her loving children, sister, granddaughter who helped care for her and Pastor Joan Jones.

A native of Calvert County, she attended Calvert County Public School. In 1954, Geraldine married the late Alvin Elkton Gray, from this union of 42 years ten children were born. Geraldine worked for Forest Lake Apartment for 10 years; after which she decided to stay at home and raise her children. She put into action one of her favorite sayings "charity begins at home, then spread abroad."

After Geraldine's retirement from Forest Lake Apartments, she traveled from one end of Calvert County to the other end as a sales entrepreneur for Mary Kay products. Promoting Mary Kay products was something she enjoyed very much. This was an easy job for Geraldine and gave her an opportunity to showcase her sales talent. Billy Coleman was a top buyer of men's cologne; Geraldine could count on him to meet sales quotas!

Geraldine visited many churches, but joined St. Edmonds United Methodist Church. She would be one of the first to arrive to show off her fashionable outfits. She was very prideful about wearing her Sunday's best. Geraldine had her favorite pew at St. Edmonds. One would find her in the same seat, rocking her head and clapping her hands to the good old hymns and the pastor's sermon. As her health began to decline, Geraldine was quick to tell doctors, family and friends "I know King Jesus!"

Anyone that visited Geraldine's home knew what meticulous care she gave to her living space. Everything was always neat, clean and in place. She was so adamant about keeping a clean kitchen; she refused to cook on her stove. You could often find her enjoying a meal with friends at the local McDonalds.

Geraldine was proceeded in death by her husband, Alvin Gray and son Vaughn Gray (Leola); four brothers: Richard Hall, Walter Hall, Jerome (Penny) and Alvin Hall; and son in-law, Calvin Butler.

Geraldine leaves fond memories to cherish by her treasured daughters: Bonise Jones, Carleen Janey (Redmond, Jr.), Diane Gray, Lisa Berry (John), and Janell Butler; and her hardworking sons: Frank Gray (Stacey), Derrick Gray (Desiree), Timothy Gray and Charles "Chuck" Gray (Annette); sister, Vernita Jones. Grandchildren: Page Jones, Jr., Travis Jones (Theresa), Sean Gray, Lamond Janey, Vaughn Gray Jr., Tamika Hamilton (Ray Jr.), Danielle Gray, Shenna Gray, Courtney Gray, Koryn Parran, KaLynn Johnson, Jeremy, Jie and Jada Smith, Trenton and Ashtin Mason, Nilah Johnson, Ann Marie, Adriena and Isaiah Goldring, Tela Berry and Christopher Seaser.

Great Grandchildren: Jordan, Olivia, Kaniesha and Isaiah Gray, Anthony Holland, Andrea Howe, Jr., Travis Jones, Jr., Maxwell and Morgan Jones, Kaedyn Covington, Gabriella, Ryan and Beau Hamilton. Brothers-in -laws: Charles, Carroll and Barry Gray; Sister-in-laws: Carolyn, llean, Olivia, Dorothy, Catherine, Jean and Jennie Gray; and an aunt, Dorothy Jones of Washington, D.C.

Special friends and cousins that she always said she could really depend on: Velma Dyse, Doris Jones, Cindrella Claggett, Rochelle Jones, Dalerie Beard, Jesse Morsell and Mary Rice. The mention of her nephew, Robert Freeland would brighten her day. Geraldine also leaves a host of family, friends, nieces and nephews; too many to name, she loved them all the same.
