    Gerry will be remembered by all her family and cousins who grew up with her not only as a relative, but also as a close friend. We had so much fun, all 13 of us, and will always remember our escapades on Gibbens Lane in Baker, where we spent most weekends together! Gerry was quiet, and so talented in many ways, including her artistic abilities. Her sweetness and tenderness will be surely missed.
