Geraldine (Jerry) Younger Obituary

Geraldine (Jerry) Dalton Younger, 84, passed away peacefully on March 16, 2024, at her home in Walnut Cove, North Carolina.

Jerry was born May 27, 1939, in Ringgold, VA, to Ila Dalton and James Gilmore Dalton.

She had fond memories of time spent at Virginia Beach, New Orleans, and Buggs Island Lake, where she spent many seasons boating and fishing with loved ones. She was a talented painter, especially known for her beautiful ocean and lighthouse scenes.

She found joy talking on the phone to her friends and relatives, including her sister Jean, long-time friend Martha, deceased friend Audrey, and special nieces Sue and Janie. Her favorite hobby was keeping up with her children and grandchildren, who were the lights of her life.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Billy Younger, half-sister Glenda , and a very special aunt, Nellie Foster, who was like a mother.

Survivors include her son, Todd Younger of Walnut Cove, NC; daughter, Wendy Hallman of Stokesdale, NC; and grandchildren Victoria Hallman and Jackson Hallman; and sisters, Jean Moore of Danville, VA, and Carolyn Redding of Winston Salem, NC. She had several nieces, nephews, and great-nieces.

A graveside service will be held at 1:00 pm on Saturday, March 23, 2024, at Danville Memorial Gardens in Danville, VA., with Pastor Linda Suggs officiating.

Flowers are appreciated, or memorial donations may be made to Trellis Supportive Care: 101 Hospice Lane. Winston-Salem, NC 27103.
