Geraldine Wilkerson

March 1, 1930 ~ January 11, 2022 (age 91)


The angels are rejoicing with the arrival of Geraldine Wilkerson, Tuesday afternoon.  Although her beauty, grace, and fun loving personality will be missed, we celebrate her life with friends and family who remember her for her caring spirit, contagious smile and her ability to never meet a stranger.   Geraldine always had time to stop and talk with friends and did not leave a conversation without telling them she loved them.  Rich with love of family and friends, nothing gave her greater joy than spending time with them.


 Geraldine Carroll Wilkerson, 91, of Hickory Grove, SC passed away on Tuesday, January 11, 2022.  We invite you to celebrate her remarkable life with us.


A Celebration of Life service will be held at 11:00 AM on Saturday, January 15, 2022 at Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church in Hickory Grove, SC with the Reverend Beth Drennen officiating. Burial will be at Hickory Grove Cemetery. Friends can visit with the family at the cemetery following the interment and at other times at the home of her daughter, Denise.

Geraldine was born on March 1, 1930 in York, SC. She was the daughter of the late Campbell Carroll and Lela McManus Carroll, and was the widow of Roy Edwin Wilkerson. She enjoyed her work at the Clerk of Court office and later at the Hickory Grove Branch of the Bank of Sharon.  Geraldine would tell you her biggest accomplishments were her family and friends.  She dearly loved her community, and her church.

Geraldine is survived by her daughter, Denise Mitchell, grandson, Will Mitchell (Rebekah) and granddaughter, Allison Norwood (John). Her love expanded even more with great-grandsons, Driggs and Bridger Mitchell, and her soon-to-be great-grandtwins, Jones and Barrow.

In addition to her parents and husband, Geraldine was preceded in death by her son-in-law, William M. Mitchell, and siblings: Dwight Carroll, Rhoda Hill, Peggy Fulcher, and Delois Moss.

The family wishes to thank HarborChase of Rock Hill and Carolina Gardens of York for their devotion and loving kindness given to her during her residence.
