    Gerry was a great lady. I was the Life Enrichment Director at Legacy when she moved in. She always had a kind word to say about everyone and was so so much fun. She had many friends who she played cards with and Gerry engaged in numerous activities. We all loved her. She will be missed immensely. 🙏❤️❤️❤️

    Dear Kirk and Family,
    My mom and I send you our deepest sympathies. Gerry was a true friend and wonderful lady. She was the first person we met at Legacy over 3 years ago, and she continued to be a friend ever since. Her strength through her trials, will never be forgotten. My mom and I will treasure the friendship with her, and you, especially in these last months. It was truly a blessing to have met Gerry on this road, and we’ll miss her.
    Marge Koenig and Moe Reuter
