Geraldine Hendrix

August 13, 1938 — February 3, 2021

Geraldine Hendrix was born on August 13, 1938 to Eron and Edell Yarbrough in Edgewood, Texas. She earned her wings to Heaven on February 3, 2021 at the age of 82 years, where she reunited with her husband, Douglas Hendrix, of 55 years. Geraldine met her future husband at Edgewood High School after he convinced her that his friends had taken his truck and he needed a ride home with her and her friends. They were married on July 13, 1956, prior to her Senior year and right before he left for the U.S. Army to serve in the Korean War. Upon his return, they settled in Mesquite, Texas, where they lived for over 50 years in the same house. Geraldine was an awesome Domestic Engineer and the best Mom to their two daughters, Cindy and Debbie. She chose to stay home and be there for her daughters every day. She was a room mother at their schools, camp counselor as they attended Mt. Lebanon Baptist Camp for many years through their church, and their chauffeur and cheerleader for them in everything they participated in growing up. Their house was always full of neighborhood children and school friends. Geraldine attended and was a charter member of Edgemont Park Baptist Church in Mesquite, Texas, along with her husband, Doug, whom she unconditionally supported in all of his endeavors there. Geraldine was preceded in death by her husband, Douglas Hendrix; her parents, Eron and Edell Yarbrough; and three brothers and two sisters. She is survived by her two daughters, Cindy Kirkpatrick and her husband, Gregg, and Debbie Hallam, and her husband, Doug. In addition, she is survived by her four grandchildren, Jennifer Holdt (& Brian), Joshua Kirkpatrick, Travis Hallam (& Tasha), and Chase Hallam (& Jenn). She was blessed to have four great grandchildren, Kevin Holdt, Jax Holdt, Kaiya Hallam, and Harper Hallam. She will witness the births of her two additional great grandchildren due in May and August from Heaven this year. She is also survived by her twin brother, Gerald (and wife, Geraldine), and her “adopted” grandchildren Ray (& Chloe’), Jeremy (& Emily), Luke, Colin, and Ryan. Geraldine requested that no memorial service be held. The family will celebrate her life at a private family service at DFW National Cemetery on March 17, 2021, as she joins her husband, Doug, who was interred there upon his death in 2011. In lieu of flowers due to current restrictions at the cemetery, we feel Geraldine would be honored if you would like to make a donation in her name to one of the following organizations: American Parkinson Disease Association; Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer in honor of her daughter, Cindy; or Campfire Creek Therapeutic Riding Center in Waxahachie, Texas in honor of her grandson, Joshua.
