Beauty in Belmont by, Delleny Molisani

Alice Elaine Geer, 50, Wellsville


Alice Elaine Geer, 50, entered into heaven on Tuesday (January 4, 2022) at Jones Memorial Hospital in Wellsville following complication of Covid-19.

Alice was born on January 14, 1971 in Wellsville to Wendall J. and Gloria J. (Davison) Post. She earned her GED through the Southern Tier Travelling Teacher Association in 2004.

Alice devoted many years as a homemaker raising her children in their younger years, in addition to helping care for her several nieces and nephews. She was also very proud of her experience as a full order cook for T.C. Nook Restaurant in Scio. She also worked for Allegany County ARC and Wellsville Manor Care Center, both in Wellsville. As a teenager, she volunteered with the Steuben County SPCA.

Alice is survived by her former husband, George Geer of Scio with whom she shares three sons, Alan (Kacie) Geer of Malvern, Ark., Adam (Tryssa) Geer of Wellsville and Anthony Geer of Scio; three siblings, Christopher (Kim) Post  of Alabama, N.Y., JoAnne (John) Gant of Belmont and Carol (Jim) Myers of Silver Creek; seven grandchildren, Gaberella, Kyleigh, Serena, Lilith, Hanna, Zoey, Bella, and one on the way; four God-children, Rebekah Marble of Wellsville, Jeremiah Myers, Kayleigh Myers, and Katelynn Myers all of Silver Creek; a special cousin, Pamela Trebik of Belmont; several nieces, nephews and cousins; and her faithful companion, Scrappy.

She was predeceased by her parents, Wendall and Gloria Post and her grandparents, Carol and Clinton Davison.

Alice loved nature and the animals that lived there. Some of her favorite memories were the fishing trips on Alma Pond and Allen Lake with her children. She greatly enjoyed camping on the local state land and knew all the nature spots in Allegany County. Canoeing down the Genesee River were also fond memories. The highlights of the summers were the extended family picnics at the local parks.

Alice loved the Lord from an early age. As a child she attended the Alma United Methodist Church and later the Riverside Assembly of God Church in Wellsville. When she lived in Silver Creek, she was a member of the Christ Chapel Church.

Due to the current Covid-19 constraints, there will be a Celebration of Life ceremony later in the year at a time to be determined. She will be laid to rest alongside her father in Alfred Rural Cemetery. Arrangements are under the direction of Baker-Swan Funeral Home in Wellsville/Scio. Online condolences may be offered at
