It is with deep sadness that we say goodbye to Gerry; our mother, sister, aunt, grandmother, great grandmother and great great grandmother on Monday, December 20, 2021 at the Colchester East Hants Health Centre.

Gerry held a few jobs throughout her life. The first was a nurse’s aide which she enjoyed but decided to change careers and became a school bus driver in 1976 and stayed until her retirement.  She was a member of the Lady’s Auxiliary Branch 26 Royal Canadian Legion where she met and had many friends. Gerry loved camping, card games and spending time with Family and friends.
