Gerri was born in Macklin Saskatchewan on July 14, 1941. Gerri was the second youngest daughter in a family of 10, growing up on a farm in Denzil Saskatchewan, riding horses and enjoying a big loving family.
Gerri was a good natured and helpful child and this carried throughout her adult life. As a young lady she spread her wings and moved in with her brother Ray who she assisted at his podiatry practice in Ottawa. In her spare time she enjoyed Skiing, playing tennis, driving her MGM and socializing with her friends.
Gerri and Dennis met through an introduction from mutual friends at a pub in Aylmer in 1965, they hit it off and Dennis proposed to Gerri in 1966 at a candlelit dinner in a restaurant in Ottawa. She accepted and they were married in a catholic church in Ottawa on Easter on April 10, 1967.They enjoyed 55 wonderful years together before she passed.
Gerri lived her life faithfully devoted to church and family. She was a nurturing and loving wife, mother and grandmother. No task was too great for Gerri. We are all deeply saddened by her very sudden loss. We are also very blessed to have had an angel like Gerri in our lives.
