Obituary for Loraine Elleen Geers

Loraine Elleen Geers (née LeVrier in El Paso, Texas, in 1935) died peacefully in her home on March 30, 2018 at the age of 82. Although Loraine mostly resided in Missouri and North Carolina, she would say: “I am from Texas, though I have lived elsewhere.”

Loraine graduated from Carson Newman College in Jefferson City, Tennessee, and received a Master’s degree in Religious Education from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas. She went on to receive a Master’s degree in education from Southeast Missouri State in Cape Girardeau, Missouri.

Like her mother Annie Lois, Loraine was a kind teacher, of both kindergarten and Sunday School. Like her father John, she was a born traveler; before she finished high school, Loraine had visited all 48 States and many Canadian provinces – all by car. Loraine served with her husband Tom who was shepherd of Trinity Baptist Church in Sikeston, Missouri for 30 years. Together, they worshipped at First Baptist Church in Durham since 2004.

Loraine was famous for her strong faith, gentle disposition, and perceptive wit. A wise, quiet matriarch of a gregarious family, Loraine would carefully time her insightful comments to bring down the house. Loraine is survived by blessed Tom and her five children – John, Karen, Katherine, Marianne, Kenneth – and six grandchildren.

A celebration of her life will be held at First Baptist Church, Durham at 2 pm on Monday, April 2, 2018. In lieu of flowers, please send memorials to the International Missions Ministry of First Baptist Church, Durham. Funeral arrangements are managed by Clements Funeral Home in Durham.
