Geraldine Ann (Connolly) Hagg
Hagg, Geraldine Ann (Connolly) Gerry peacefully left this world surrounded by family Friday, 8/16 following a massive stroke. Gerry was born 9/23/32 in Minneapolis to parents John & Sylvia (Stanek) Connolly. The family moved to the Hopkins area where Gerry attended St. Joseph's K-8. They then moved to Benson, MN and back to Spring Park, MN where Gerry graduated from Mound High School in 1950. Preceded in death by parents and daughters Julie Anna and Jenny. Survived by husband William, children John, Jamie (Danah Ditzig), Jacky (Dan Stoddard) and son-in-law Brad Jensen and grandchildren Matt and Mike Stoddard, Shelbi, Hannah and Alex Giesel, and Lili, William and Dylan Hagg. Gerry resided in the Lake Nokomis area for 58 years where she was a homemaker and active community member, attending her children's school & athletic events. She was a long time member of OLP Catholic Church and an avid volunteer for Meals-on-Wheels, Loaves & Fishes and more. Gerry loved estate sales and auctions, which led her to run her own business. Gerry's family & friends considered her famous for her holiday dinners & gatherings at the "Betsy Cabin" which featured outstanding rolls, donuts, pies and more. Gradual failing memory and physical strength led to several years of home care and a move to Village Shores. Please join us for a celebration of her life at Lakewood Cemetery on Thursday, August 29 at noon. Reception with luncheon to follow. Memorials preferred to the Crohn's and Colitis Foundation, in honor of her daughter, or your favorite charity.
