  3. Our thoughts and prayers are with the Wolfe family in this difficult time. Rod and Mary Salter

  4. So very sorry to hear about Sis, she was the best babysitter to my brothers and I many years ago. Made us pick blackberries and we got excited about having an Aunt Yolanda pie and Sis burnt it. We never let her forget it. She was the best. Prayers to her family and the entire Geci and Wolfe family, I know she will be missed.

  5. Dear Dave and Family,
    I truly feel your loss.
    The Geci family was a big part of my life growing up, they lived right across the highway from us.
    It was like having another family of all brothers and sisters. I loved it.
    Florence “Sis” was what we called her, will always be remembered in my prayers.
    May she now rest in peace.
    You have my deepest sympathy, God bless you all.

  6. I am so sorry to hear of her passing. I remember her best from Thrift/Rite Aid but I do believe she was one of my Girl Scout leaders. Denise Wolfe, I haven’t seen you in ages but I have fond memories of the Girl Scout meetings. She was a sweet soul.

  7. Dee Dee, Rob and all the family.

    Prayers for all of you during this difficult time, especially around the Holidays. Haven’t seen her in years , but always so sweet. Know she is a whisper away and keep her memories alive in your hearts

  8. I have been a part of the Geci family through my husband, Dick for decades. I remember Dick saying that Sis was his babysitter. I see that she is only 5 years older than Dick would have been. He must have been a big baby! My sympathy to each and every one of you. All of you and Yolanda have each touched this Feidler family in so many wonderful ways. God bless!

  9. Aloha — Florence was truly a great spirit….thoughts and prayers for the Wolfe family at this time.

  10. Dave, Annette & the entire Geci Family, we extend deepest sympathy in the passing of your loved one. God’s Blessings to you all.
