WOODBURN: Geraldine (Boswell), 71, of 5997 West Fall Road, Lake Worth, Fla., went to be with the Lord on Sunday, Dec. 16, 2001, at the Wentworth-Douglas Hospital, Dover, N.H., following a short illness.

She enjoyed a long, rewarding career as a registered nurse at the Life Care Retirement Home in Delray Beach, Fla., prior to her retirement last December. Geraldine will be held in countless hearts and will always be remembered as someone who put others first.

She is survived by her mother, Alice Boswell of Rochester, N.H.; a son, Gerald "Dusty" Woodburn of West Palm Beach, Fla.; four daughters, Denise Woodburn of Lake Worth, Fla., Elizabeth Woodburn-Hurst and Tracie Woodburn, both of West Palm Beach, Fla., and Audrey King of Lancaster, N.H.; eight grandchildren; two great-grandchildren; two brothers, Earl Boswell and Edward Boswell, both of Whitefield; three sisters, Una Lewis and Mary Rodrigue, both of Rochester, N.H., and Ruby Haefner of Dorchester, Mass.; several nieces and nephews; and her devoted friend Robert Williams of Lyman, N.H.
