Geraldine "Jeri" Marie Stanger, age 76, of Indianapolis, passed away on October 28, 2023. She was born in Indianapolis, Indiana, on July 9, 1947, to her parents, William and Katherine Copeland.

Jeri dedicated 20 years of her life to the art of beautician work. She had a remarkable combination of qualities, possessing the patience of a saint but also a feisty spirit. Jeri was never afraid to speak her mind and stand her ground, especially when it came to matters of family. She had an extraordinary gift for taking care of everyone around her, ensuring that no one ever had to worry about taking care of her in return.

One of Jeri's unique interests was her love for clowns, with a particular fondness for Emmett Kelly figurines. These whimsical characters brought her joy and were a reflection of her playful and light-hearted nature.
