Geraldine Vera (Arndts) Mutzner, 96 of Richmond, Indiana, passed away Tuesday, October 20 at Forest Park Health Campus in Richmond. She was born August 18, 1924 to Hubert (Nick) C. and Rose Mae (Smith) Eldridge in Dayton.

Geraldine was loved by so many, many people. Her great-nieces called her “Aunt Geri the Great!” She worked for many years at Donenfeld’s in the Salem Mall. She loved traveling and dancing, was a member of a square-dancing club. Later in life, she loved listening to her audio books.

She is survived by her son Gary Ray (JoAnn) Arndts, grandson Christopher Ray (Kimberly) Arndts; step grandchildren Scott (Francie) Ingram and Lora Ingram, and step great-grandchildren Hannah, Sean and Rachel Ingram.

She was preceded in death by the love of her life, husband Raymond Arndts in 1981 and then John Mutzner in 1989. Having lost her mother at the age of 12, she was especially close to her late brothers, Herbert, Marvin, Bill and Glen, her sister Pauline, step-mother Monta Eldridge and step-sister Cloda (Lloyd) Baird. Geraldine dearly loved her nieces and nephews, and great-nieces and nephews.
