Marlborough – Geraldine B. “Gerrie” (Schaefer) Cavicchio, 78, died at home Saturday June 11, 2011, surrounded by her loving family, after a brief illness.

She was the loving mother of 11 children, Kenneth, Eileen, Jane, Steven, William, Richard, Michael, Paul, Thomas, Joseph and John; 17 grandchildren; and 10 great-grandchildren. All of her children were very proud of her and she will sorely be missed by them all.
