Funeral services were held at the Presbyterian church in Thayer at 1 p.m. Monday and were conducted by Mrs. Roland Shafer, pastor of the church. Interment was made in the Rose Lawn cemetery in charge of Sheets & Son.
She is survived by three children -- Louise McKee, Josephine DeFries and Joseph DerKinderen; also, two grand children, Louise Laurer and Jenny DeFries.
* NOTE -- Although this article gives Mrs. Geysen's birth and death dates as Feb. 16, 1838, through May 16, 1934, it states that her life span ran 96 years, 3 months and 2 days, which seems wrong by a day or two.
