Jeanette M. Geiger, 91, passed away peacefully in her sleep on April 30, 2021. She was born on Oct. 30, 1929 in Sacramento County and spent her early years living on the Geiger Family Dairy in Galt until 1943 when the family moved to the Rio Linda Geiger Dairy (now known as the Dry Creek Ranch House, Rio Linda/Elverta Historical Society).
Jeanette worked for the State of California for 40 years, starting as a keypunch operator and advancing to data tech supervisor II. She retired from the Dept. of Health Services in 1985, eventually moving to Galt, an area to which she felt a close attachment.
Jeanette maintained contact with extended family members and was a major contributor to the Geiger/Rutishauser family history project.
Preceding her in death were her parents, George and Amelia Geiger, and 10 brothers and sisters. She is survived by her many nieces and nephews and their families.
Jeanette will be laid to rest at the Galt-Arno Cemetery.
