CARROLTON - A memorial open house for Geri Roseanne Acevedo, 65, will be held at the home of Matthew and Casey DeKrey in Carrollton on Saturday, July 27.

Geri was born in Brownwood and graduated from Stephenville High School. She received a bachelor’s degree in journalism from Howard Payne University. 

She married David Acevedo on May 23, 1980. 

Geri had a career in radio and television spanning 40 years and several states, beginning in television in Victoria, and working her way up to co-host the Dave and Geri Morning Show in Grand Rapids, MI.

Grand Rapids was where Dave and Geri made their lives and raised their children, retiring from radio in 2007. 

Outside of work, Geri had a passion for gardening, writing, reading, cooking, pop culture, the news and her family. 

She is survived by her husband David, her daughters Casey DeKrey (Matthew) of Carrollton, and Kristen Acevedo-Toll (Keith) of Los Angeles, CA. 

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations in Geri’s name to Operation Kindess Animal Shelter at www.operationkindness.org.
