Geraldine E. Kinler, 93, passed from this life on August 30, 2020 in Kerrville, TX. after a long illness.

In New Orleans, she worked at Charity Hospital, then became the public health nurse for the City Hall of New Orleans. Jerry volunteered her nursing care to assist any time she was needed by family, friends and neighbors, as well as with vaccination drives and post hurricane assistance. Jerry was devoted to her family and was deeply loved by them. She also enjoyed working in her garden and taking care of the birds.
She is preceded in death by her parents, her four siblings and their spouses and by her husband Dalton Paul Kinler.
She is survived by her sons, Gary Paul and his wife Joan; Donald James (wife Ana, deceased); daughter, Elise Ann; sister- in- law, Elaine Kinler Enzone; grandchildren, Paul Joseph, Elaine Marie, Christopher Paul, Stephanie Elise and Michael Dalton; great grandchildren, Matthew, Riley and Katelyn and Andrew.
The family gives special thanks to her loving caregiver Connie Dominguez and to Peterson Hospice for their excellent support and care.
