Obituary: Miriam Violet Geiger, 87

Miriam Violet Geiger, 87, made her transition on March 20, 2014 on spring’s first day. A celebration of her life will be held privately at Fairview Cemetery in Westfield, N.J. where she will lay to rest with her husband, Frank J. Geiger, former owner of Geiger Orchards of Red Hook, N.Y.

Born in Aldershot, England, Miriam was a resident of Springfield, N.J., Red Hook, N.Y., and Toms River, N.J. She was the beloved mother of Sandra Greig, Robin Claire, Vivian Cohen, Frank G. Geiger, Sally Daly, and Tracy Higgins.

Miriam was the sister of Nigel Kemp and the late Royston Kemp, cherished grandmother of twelve grandchildren and one great-grandchild. In lieu of flowers, a thoughtful gift of a book to your local library would remember Miriam’s love of reading.
