Geraldine Lee Chaney was born to Donald E. Allen and Virginia M. Allen on July 12, 1950 in Spokane, Washington. She was called to rest on October 2, 2016.

She is also survived by her mother Virginia M. Allen, daughter Alissia A. Kite, son-in-law David W. Kite, grandsons Braden W.L. Kite and Skyler J.D. Royer as well as many close family and friends.
Of the various careers that Gerry had in her life, her passion was in homemaking. Whether it was a cozy crocheted blanket, or an Italian meal prepared with skill and love, she offered her gifts to all comers. Her listening ear and ready advice helped many people, young and old. She was truly the go-to mom in every aspect. She knew the Lord and was an amazing inspiration to all who knew her. The funeral mass will be said by Rev. Victor Blazovich at St. Patrick Parish, 5021 N. Nelson St in Spokane on October 15th at 10am. The reception will follow immediately in the Holy Names Hall. Burial is at 1pm at Holy Cross Cemetery.
The family would like to thank all the doctors, nurses, and first responders who were involved in her care. You did your very best to keep her life as comfortable as possible.
