With a zest for life, Gerri was a proud Army wife for 20+ years while working a successful career for Eastern Airlines and as a travel agent. She was a dedicated member of the Smyrna Oakdale Moose Lodge as well as the Marietta Moose Lodge where you could typically find Gerri dancing with friends, singing karaoke, playing bingo, or shooting pool. For more enjoyment, she enjoyed traveling or cruising, bowling in her bowling league, watching TV or reading a good book. After retiring to Panama City, FL in 2002 with her groom, Bob, Gerri enjoyed spending time with her grandkids, taking in a swim around the pool, a competitive game of Chicken Foot, watching her game shows and she still loved to read a good book.
