Gerry was a clerk and also a model for Dentsply International in York for over 30 years. She was a wonderful homemaker and a good friend to so many. The things most important to her and closest to her heart were her family and friends. She enjoyed cooking, hosting holiday meals, spending time with her grandchildren, visiting friends from church and enjoying her grand-dog, Cassie.
