At St. Patrick's School in Menasha, WI, we knew Sister Jean Ford as Sister Gerald. She taught the mathematics section of my 8th grade class, and from a very progressive text. She was smart, funny, and kind. One time in the back of the room, Sister Gerald expanded on some geometry we were doing with statements about how time was the fourth dimension. I thought of Sister when I finally sorted that out a few years later. She leaves a delightful memory with me, and I wish deepest condolences to those who knew her well. I'm sure Sister Jean is already missed.

As my 7th grade homeroom and math teacher, Sr. Gerald was a bright, spunky and brilliant light at St. Patrick's grade school in Menasha. I caught up with her decades later when she was the principal of a school in Chicago. Her energy, enthusiasm and unfailing sense of humor will be a joy to me forever.

I worked with Jean for a number of years ago at St Mary Central high School in Menasha. She was a marvelous person I am saddened to hear of her passing😪
