Geraldine Whitaker Hyde, 69, of Owensboro, passed away January 17, 2022, at Owensboro Health Regional Hospital. She was born October 12, 1952, in Daviess County to the late Paul Ray Whitaker and Eva Christine. Geraldine loved to sing karaoke at the Bowl-a-drome, where she worked as a bartender.

She is survived by her children, Kirk Patrick Harrison, Jeffery Wayne Harrison, Pamela Gail Presson, and Johnny Franklin Harrison; her brothers Paul Ray Whitaker II, Larry David Whitaker and Thomas Dwayne Carter; sisters, Judith Ann "Judy" King and Brenda Sue Griffin; 18 grandchildren, 16 great-grandchildren, and a large and loving extended family.
