She enjoyed gardening and meeting many people selling their beautiful produce at the farmers markets in Trenton and Chillicothe. Gerry loved children and over the years was a 4H leader, wrestling mom, band booster, and a great supporter of anything related to kids and schools, even when the kids were adults. 

In addition to gardening, she was a prolific knitter and baker. She made many, many gifts and legendary cinnamon rolls over the years for her family and friends. Since retirement she has been able to travel extensively and enjoyed seeing new places and meeting new people.
