I met Gerry in Va Beach... I remember riding my bicycle from Lake Edwards to hang out with her in Diamond Springs. Her loving family always welcomed me with open arms. Her friends are genuine just as she. A very strong and caring person with a big heart. I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. My love and prayers go out to all her friends and family. Patrick Dozier

I met Gerry when I was in 10th grade at Bayside High School. We became fast friends and did something just about every weekend together. Our biggest adventures were our spur of the moment camping trips to Kerr Lake. I will cherish all of our memories and speak of them often. I will miss you Gerry.. I have and will always love you. You have gone to become an angel. Please watch over all of us !

I have known Gerry for many years and one memory that will always stick in my mind is how she could back up a camper trailer better than any man I know. On one camping trip many years ago, while all the men went to put the boat in the water, Gerry climbed behind the wheel of a pickup truck and started back the camper into it's camping spot. Everyone stepped back and laughed at this woman who withing seconds had that big camper in place. She had a beautiful smile and when she laughed, EVERYONE laughed. I will miss those days and miss her very much. Rest in peace sweet angel and you are always welcome at our campsite!

I worked with Gerry in the late 90's at Uncle Harry's. She helped plan and organize my wedding. So many fun memories with her! A great lady who adored her family. She was so proud to be Lauren's mom. Praying for comfort for all who loved this sweet lady.
