Gerry was known to her grandchildren and many others as Gigi. She was born in Atlanta, GA on October 26, 1940. She attended Murphy High School in Atlanta, before marrying and raising a family. She worked at DeKalb Community College, Mathis Dairy and ultimately retired from IBM. She was a long time member of Mount Carmel Christian Church, where she was heavily involved in the music ministry and the women’s ministry. Most recently, she was a member of Smoke Rise Baptist Church. Gigi loved to sew, draw, paint, read, and travel with friends. Gigi fiercely loved her family and was an amazing mother, grandmother, sister, and aunt. She was a strong Christian woman who loved the Lord and had a servant's heart. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to World Vision at Worldvision.org. Worldvision is a humanitarian aid program. Instead of presents at Christmas, Gigi would often sponsor a child, buy a bicycle, a goat, or a sewing machine through World Vision so children in impoverished areas could thrive, stay safe, and not go hungry. A graveside service will be held on Saturday, February 13, 2021 at 11:00 AM at Fairview Memorial Gardens, Stockbridge, GA. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to World Vision, https://www.worldvision.org/donate. If you would like, World Vision will send a card to let the family know of your donation.
