September 4, 1947 – April 28, 2015

 

Elizabeth (York) Geyman, born Mae Elizabeth York passed away at 8:55 am on Tuesday, April 28, 2015, after a hard-fought, four month battle with leukemia.  Liz’s final weeks were spent as she wished, at her home surrounded by friends and family. 

 

Friends may call from 2 to 8 p.m. Thursday at Rupp Funeral Home.  She will lie instate at 10 a.m. Friday at Stewart Road Christian Ministries Center with funeral services at 11 a.m.  Rev. Dr. Joseph Byrd, pastor of the church, will officiate.  Burial will follow at Roselawn Memorial Park, LaSalle.

 

Liz was born to Helen (Yeary) Notario and Paul York in Middlesboro, KY on September 4, 1947 and was a member of the 1966 graduating class of Monroe High School.  On October 12, 1968, Liz married Thomas Geyman with whom she had three children, Kimberly (Ted), Matthew (Sara), and Gabriel (Tammy).  Liz was most recently employed at the Kroger grocery store on Monroe Street, where she retired in 2013.  In addition to her husband and children, Liz is survived by eight grandchildren and her sister Sue (York) Zion.  Liz was preceded in death by her mother, Helen (Yeary) Notario, her father, Paul York and her beloved step-father, Paul Notario.

 

Liz will be missed by everyone that knew her.  She had a smile and a kind word for anyone within her view. No one was a stranger to Liz and she loved everyone she came in contact with. Chances are that if she knew you, she knew your birthday, your spouse’s name, all your children’s names and all of their birth dates – you were also likely to receive a hug.  Liz was an amazing woman that we are so fortunate to have known.  We will always love her. What wonderful memories we have of our dear wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend.

    So sad that our sweet “Libby” has passed. She was such a wonderful, giving person and her hugs and smiles will certainly be missed. We shared so many good times growing up and I will remember her always. Praying for the family thru this difficult time, but know that she is in a much better place enjoying a reunion with her mom, Paul, and all of those she loved .

    I had the pleasure of knowing “Aunt” Liz for a few years. What a wonderful, caring, and sweet person she was. She also had the best hugs. I will miss her soft sweet voice. I am glad to know she is with our heavenly, and no longer suffering. Until we meet again, I love you Aunt Liz

    Liz was one of my very best friends in high school. She was one of the kindest, most caring and loving women I knew. Liz and her husband, Tom, stood up for me and my husband in our wedding in 1968. My husband, Jerry Long passed away 3 years later. Tom was always a great friend of Jerry’s.
    Although Liz and I have not been able to keep in touch through the years due to my moving out of town,she always had and always will have a very special place in my heart. How wonderful to know Liz is rejoicing in Heaven with Jesus and her family that has gone before her!
    My prayers are with the family at this difficult transition time.
    Love you Liz!

    So sorry to hear of Liz’s passing. I first knew her when I sold Rainbows for Nu-Aire Ind. Then I would see her at Kroger often and she always brought a smile to my face. She was so pleasant and her love for God shone in her personality. My prayers with with you all Tom.
