 Mourning passing of Mandy Gerace

 On February 4, 2023, the green industry lost one of its leaders. We are all mourning the sudden passing of Mandy Gerace. Mandy was just 46 years old. 

Mandy was currently serving as President of the Colorado Nursery and Greenhouse Association board. Mandy was the youngest member of the Gerace family's third generation and had worked at Welby Gardens for 13 years. Gerace grew up in the horticulture industry.

In August 2020, Mandy joined the Syngenta Flowers production team. As Mandy's health would no longer permit her to travel, she transitioned into a sales position. 

A Celebration of Life for Mandy was held at Chateaux at Fox Meadows on Thurs., Feb. 16, 2023. As a tribute to her love of baking, people brought many desserts and baked goods that were shared at the celebration.

In lieu of flowers, the family is asking for donations to help care for Mandy’s children, Ethan and Reese Foster. A memorial page is set up at
