Geraldine Ann Stanek (Adam), age 88, of Pell Lake, WI, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 25, 2021 at Alden Estates of Barrington, IL. Daughter of the late Matthew and Lottie (Kobus) Adam, Geraldine was born on April 9, 1933, in Chicago, IL. She was united in marriage to the late Theodore John Stanek, who preceded her in death in 1999. Geraldine worked as a secretary during her life, and often worked two jobs to provide the best possible life for her five children. Geraldine was a loving, caring, helpful person, described by her kids as a super provider. A member of St. Francis de Sales Catholic Church of Lake Geneva, WI, Geraldine relied heavily on her strong Catholic faith to guide her through life. She was a social butterfly who loved to talk and made friends anywhere she went. She was an avid reader, loved animals, played Bingo, crocheted, enjoyed baking, loved Elvis, and was happy being in the sunshine.
