Gerry was such a sweetheart of a woman, always quietly concerned about others. Enjoyed our monthly lunches at the Green Mill over at least 10 years. So glad she touched my life.

I will always remember the great times I had with my "Beta" sister. She always had a smile on her face and kept us in line when we got too rowdy! Prayers and love to her family.

Sorry for your loss Jim and family. Rich and I were neighbors back in 1966. Gerry joined Rich. May they Rest In Peace.
