GERALDINE A WELSH (nee Counselman) age 82, passed away Thursday, August 4, 2016. Gerry will be sadly and profoundly missed by her loving family and her furry best friend, Bella. When she wasn’t waist-deep in the ocean in the Bahamas, she was here, cheering on her dear Cleveland Indians, enjoying her family and socializing with an enormous, life-long circle of friends, many made over forty years while waitressing and bartending at The Northfield Inn. She was truly a local icon.
Beloved wife of the late James; loving mother of James (Pam), Daniel (Laura), Mark (Christina), Gregory (Lora) and Christopher (Kristen); cherished grandmother of Matthew, Benjamin, Jimmy, Jeffrey (Kaylee), Ryan, Aaron (Kayleigh), Christian, Brenna, Mackenzie, Julia, Mia, Little Jimmy, Chuck Ritley, Kristin Ritley and Steve Ritley; great-grandmother of Brett; dear daughter of the late Harry Counselman and Helen (James) McCluskey; sister of the late Harriet (Nate) Trimble.
