Elizabeth ‘Libby’ Geyer, 58, devoted to her family, her eyes and smile lit up every room she entered

By on June 27, 2018

Elizabeth “Libby” Geyer, 58, went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, June 20, 2018, at her home in Lititz after a long and very courageous battle with breast cancer.

Libby was born in Chicago, Ill., and was the daughter of Jerry Tyler and Elaine Marshall.

She was preceded in death by her father; her stepfather: Leonard Marshall; and her eldest brother; Jerome Tyler.

In addition to Jeff, her husband of nearly 35 years, she is survived by her three children: Hannah (married to Ben) Wolfe of Pittsburgh; Philip (married to Brittany) Geyer of Annapolis, Md.; and David Geyer of Arlington, Va.; her beloved granddaughter: Charlotte Wolfe; her mother: Elaine of Placentia, Calif.; sister: Michelle (married to Billy) Corrigan of Lake Arrowhead, Calif.; her brother: Vince (married to Nancy) Tyler, and their two sons, Austin and Zachary Tyler, of Nashville, Tenn.; and stepmother: Vivian Tyler of Chicago, Ill.

Libby was a beautiful and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and special friend to so many. Her eyes and smile lit up every room she entered and she had a way of engaging with people that made them feel as if what they were saying was the most important thing in the world. Her children, their spouses, and of course, Charlotte, are her greatest legacy and she was most proud of the “PHD” (Philip-Hannah-David) that she earned while staying home to raise her kids.

Services will be held on Wednesday, June 27, at the Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home, 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz. Visitation with the family will begin at 4:30 p.m., and be followed by the memorial service at 6. As Libby requested, and in keeping with her spirit, all are requested to wear something bright and cheery as we celebrate her life, far too short but so well lived.

In lieu of flowers, please consider a donation to support Philip’s mother-in-law, Aracelly Woodall, as she runs the New York City Marathon this November in honor of Libby. All donations will support cancer research through Fred’s Team – Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and can be made directly at mskcc.convio.net/site/TR/RunsWalks/FredsTeam?px=4047217&pg=personal&fr_id=3111.
