She volunteered for many causes including quilting at St. John the Baptist Church, as a member of the SJB Christian Women, reading assistance at Fairview School, and sewing Camo Quilts for the military. Most of all, she was a loving wife and mother to her family, attending most events in the lives of her children and grandchildren.

She was an avid gardener, loved traveling, and enjoyed camping across the United States with her family. Her favorite hobbies included weaving baskets, sewing, reading and she loved spending time in the outdoors.

Gerri is survived by her husband of 63 years, David, her three sons: Dan (Cindy), Paul (EnChi), and Mark (Lynn) Connors; Two daughters: Kathy (Kevin) Head and Pat (Jim) Scherer; Her 12 grandchildren: Jen (Kevin) Humphrey and Val (Will) Steiner, Kristin and Katlyn Head, Allison, Hannah (fiance Cody Wisman) and Cailin Scherer, Erin and Micaela Connors, and Amanda, Nick, and Kelsey Connors; Three great-grandchildren: Tiffany, Dylan, and Dustin Humphrey; Two sisters: Betty (Dick) Hecht, Sandy Lottes; and brother: Phil (Maggie) Lottes and many other relatives.

Gerri was preceded in death by her parents, her brother and sister-in-law: Bob and Carol Lottes, and her beloved daughter, Linda.
