Allman Brothers' Mother Geraldine Dead At 98 (Week In Review)
Known as Jerry to her friends, she'd brought them up after her husband died suddenly in 1950, just five years after they'd married. Granddaughter Galadrielle Allman's says via Gregg's site: "Jerry had a motto taken from a poem by Sam Walter Floss: 'Let me live in my house by the side of the road and be a friend to man.' The modest beauty of this wish was typical of Jerry.
"She had a natural ability to live in the moment and celebrate the simple pleasures of life. Her door was always open to her many friends and she often had a full house. She took great pleasure in flowers and gardening.
"Her hands were always busy with handwork, crocheting and knitting beautiful things. She was a wonderful cook, and collected cook books and recipes. She loved the ocean and walking on the beach by her home." Read more - here.
