Sinn Féin Foyle MLA Karen Mullan led the tributes to the local woman.

“I am very sad today to learn of the passing of Geraldine my fellow Pink lady and friend," she said.

"We are indebted to the work she has done over the years.

“I would like to send my condolences to her family circle and friends at this time. They are in our thoughts and prayers."
