Geraldine had one sibling, Linda James Johnson, whom she had a loving relationship with her whole life. She was a lifetime resident of Provo, Utah and attended Maeser Elementary, Farr Junior High and graduated from Provo High in 1957 where she participated in several school activities.

Geraldine married her high school sweetheart, Leland Gordon Collard of Provo, Utah, fresh out of high school, August 2, 1957. They had five children: Lee Ann, Cay Lynn, James, Lafey and Richard. Geraldine was very devoted to her children and grandchildren; supporting them in their many activities such as horse showing, ice skating, gymnastics, cheerleading, ballet and many others. Geraldine was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and served in many positions throughout her life, some of them being involved in the Relief Society Presidency as well as a teacher in both Young Women’s and Primary.
