October 30, 1956 - March 7, 2015

Gerilyn (Geri) Washtician Hess, 58, of Harrisburg, passed away Saturday, March 7th at Hershey Medical Center surrounded by her loving family after a courageous six year battle with Triple Negative, Stage IV breast cancer. Born in Pottsville PA, she was a 1974 graduate of Minersville Area High School, attended Bloomsburg University, and worked over 30 years as a Medical Technologist with Polyclinic/Pinnacle Health before joining a private oncology practice where she focused her medical expertise on caring for cancer patients.

Surviving are her loving and devoted husband, Douglas Hess; daughters, Lauren, a Temple University graduate student and Rachel, a Bloomsburg University undergraduate.

In support of life, Geri donated her body to advance medicine and science.

My Generous Sister, Geri

Growing up, Geri was the middle sister -- Five years younger than Diane and five years older than me. She loved climbing trees, ice skating, riding her bike, and gymnastics. Aside from some small battle scars from lively activities, she was beautiful, petite, with dark eyes, and lovely dark hair that went far below her waist. She taught me to do cart wheels, ice skate, and took me to my first disco. Geri was a serious student and a hard worker. While I was far from looking or acting anything like her or Diane, she loved me for the person I became, believed I had an ability to figure out anything, relished in my less serious side, and loved to laugh with me.

Geri was so, so generous to everyone. If you were family, a friend, co-worker, or neighbor, you certainly cannot look around your home without seeing something she gave you or your family. It was apparent that she thought of those she loved often and everywhere she was, she always came home or arrived with something in hand for someone. Even if you can’t think of what she gave to you, she left you a very special gift. Geri cared for her family and friends, their friends, and their friend’s friends health and well being. Whenever she heard of a medical struggle she was on it! Sifting through the internet, medical journals, and drawing from over 30 years experience, she was on a mission to put you on the right track or seek the right help for whatever ailed you. Many are surprised by Geri’s wish to donate her body to medicine, science and research, but really it is so fitting. She was grateful for her opportunities to learn beyond the text books, and wanted to extend opportunities for students, universities, researchers, and all of us to live in a better, healthier world, long after her last breath.

Please support Geri in her gifts to us with a donation to the Geri Hess Memorial Fund, and be sure to scroll to the bottom of this page to enjoy special thoughts and memories from her friends and family. But most of all, we hope you will share your own.
Geri’s loving sister, Donna

The downside of the car tax rates is the trouble it'll cause to average or lower income people. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. Therefore, it will be a wise decision to invest in the new technology rather than relying upon the old technologies.

Consequently, the makers have set up specialist programs in addition to repair facilities. And while the MR2 can be a bit difficult with stock tires - grip can break suddenly if you push the car to hard - simply putting upgraded to sport tires makes the car hang on to bends as if velcroed to the track. Phoenix (muscle car) is a car you use in a race mission (San Fierro Hills).
