Geraldine was born in Peoria, IL on January 18, 1933 to Fred and Olena Koch. She graduated from Manual High School in 1950. She was Senior Class President and also involved in the band, playing the clarinet.

After graduation, she worked for Kraft Foods until 1956. She married Robert Zoul on June 30, 1956 in Berwyn, IL. She and her husband traveled for the first year of marriage when Bob did auditing for Kraft. She had many jobs in each city, working for ManPower and Kelly Girls.

After 10 years, they moved to Barrington Hills where Jerri worked for EBSCO Subscription Services, ending her career as Operations Manager 23 years later.

Retiring to St. Simons Island and then Hot Springs, Arkansas, they moved back to Illinois because of her husband’s illness.
