POST, Geraldine "Jerry"

Geraldine "Jerry" Post, of Beavercreek, passed away Thursday, April 21, 2022, at Hospice of Dayton after battling cancer. She was 86.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Earl and Edna Cramer; ex-husband Howard Post; and two sisters, Carol Mae Austin and Betty Casad.

She is survived by her two children, Rick (Alissa) Post of Jamestown and Tammy (Rick) McCrabb of Springboro; three grandchildren, Elisa Crosby, Ryan Post and Hannah McCrabb; three great-grandchildren, twin sister Judy Green of Beavercreek and numerous nieces and nephews and countless friends.

Jerry worked in several schools in Beavercreek doing various jobs. She retired from the Beavercreek Board of Education where she worked in the payroll department. She graduated in 1954 from Beavercreek High School where she was a standout athlete.

She was an avid golfer, playing in several leagues at WGC Golf Course and Beavercreek Golf Course well into her 80s. She made four holes-in-one.

She was a longtime member of Hawker Church of Christ in Beavercreek. She once attended an early service so she could make her late morning tee time and she was the only person in the chapel. The pastor said: "Well, Jerry, it's you and me today."

She thoroughly enjoyed her family and spending the holidays and special occasions with them. She was known for her homemade candies and chocolate chip cookies.

She served on the committee of the McCrabb Open, a charity golf tournament that raises money for children with cancer.
