Geraldine L. Worrell

Geraldine L. Worrell, age 90, of Prior Lake, entered eternal life on October 23, 2018.

Born on November 17, 1927 in Herington, Kansas to Daniel and Esther (Welch) Allen. She met Orville “Frank” Francis Worrell while he was serving in the Army during WWII. They married on June 13, 1944 in Herington, Kansas. After the war, they settled in Frank’s hometown of Minneapolis, Minnesota.

During much of their marriage, Geraldine was an entrepreneur and business owner, founding and operating grocery stores and a liquor store in Bloomington and Eden Prairie for 25 years. They enjoyed a cottage on Prior Lake and eventually moved to Prior Lake and most of the family settled there as well.

She touched hundreds of lives with her quilts during her life and her quilts are cherished by family and friends. She was a member of one of the early Prior Lake Quilting Clubs and her charities included Caring and Sharing hands, Women’s Alpha Center, and Families Moving Forward.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Frank; son, Patrick, and grandson, Peter Jr. Geraldine is survived by her sons and daughters, Marilyn Revak, Frank (Linda), Tony, Peter, Jim, Katy (Terry) Groves; daughter-in-law, Phyllis; 18 grandchildren and 20 great-grandchildren.

  1. I’m so sorry for your loss, I know this is a hard time for the family. I would like to send my condolences. One thing that has always helped me through times like these, is the hope found in the Bible. The Bible gives a wonderful hope of seeing our loved ones again on a paradise earth! Revelation 21:3,4- And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
    I hope this brings you as much comfort as it did for me.

She became very dear to me, not only because of quilting and reading interests, but because of her sense of humor and caring for others . She and my husband became pals too. We will miss her greatly. Blessings to all of her family . She shared much about the family she loved so deeply.
