NORWAY — Geraldine T. Price, 65, of Oxford, passed away Thursday, Nov. 24. She left this world the way she lived, surrounded by family and friends.

Gerri was born in Woburn, Mass., on Sept. 23, 1946, the daughter of Myrtle (Morrill) Vilasi and Sebastian Vilasi. She was raised in Stoneham, Mass., where she attended school.

Gerri gave back to her community, working almost 20 years coordinating the Christmas for Kids program for Oxford County, enriching the lives of thousands of children.
