From friends of St. Elizabeth’s, one of the City’s oldest Catholic high schools:

The St. Elizabeth Academy school community has suffered a loss. We were informed yesterday that Mrs. Susan Geldmacher, our Principal from 2005 until October, 2007, has passed away. As you may know, she took a medical leave of absence when her cancer reoccurred. She was surrounded by her family and friends at home. The community gathered in chapel to receive this news and to pray for Mrs. Geldmacher and her family.

School will be closed on Thursday, January 17, out of respect for Mrs. Geldmacher.

The wake will be from 2:00 PM to 8:00 PM on Wednesday, January 16, at

Gebken-Benz Mortuary
2842 Meramec Street
St. Louis, MO 63118

The Mass of Resurrection (funeral) will be at 10:00 AM on Thursday, January 17, at
St. Anthony of Padua Church
3140 Meramec Street
St Louis, MO 63118

Aware of Mrs. Geldmacher's wishes, the family requested donations to St. Elizabeth Academy for the Empowering Women in Science Project.

Please continue your prayers for Mrs. Geldmacher, her family, and the entire St. Elizabeth Academy community during this very difficult time.
