Mrs. Geer graduated from Stetson University in 1949 with a B.A. in English with further studies in Library Science. She always had a great fondness for music; teaching was another strong interest. She taught piano lessons in her home for over 25 years. Her church responsibilities included teaching children, youth, and internationals; the library, and accompanying the junior choir. She also taught English as a Second Language one day a week at the church for 20 years. Her husband, the Dr. William Dudley Geer (1922-2003), joined the faculty at Samford University in 1959 serving as the first dean of the School of Business from 1966-1990. During that time, Mrs. Geer served as an active member of the Samford Faculty Women's Club and the Women's Auxiliary. Along with her husband, Mrs. Geer enjoyed traveling and entertaining internationals in their home. She resided at Town Village, Vestavia, where she played the piano for the Sunday morning worship services.
