(nee KALIAN)

January 22, 1933 - November 3, 2022

Peacefully, in her 90th year, Gerry passed away at Lions Manor in Winnipeg after a long illness.
She is survived by her loving husband Gary, of 66 years, her children Colleen and Reid (Gwenda), granddaughters Sarah (Adam), Julia, Deanna, and Leanne, brother Gordon (Ruby), and close family Ravi.
Gerry was born and raised in Winnipeg, where she excelled in artistic endeavours (painting and crafts) and athletic pursuits, especially speedskating, basketball, and tennis. She was known for her devotion to family, her talented help with science projects and Halloween costumes for her children, for the creation of amazing Christmases and holiday celebrations, and for supporting her grandchildren in their life goals and various artistic and athletic pursuits. Grandma Gerry could always be found courtside in her wheelchair cheering on a grandchild at a basketball game or weightlifting competition. She will be very deeply missed.
Cremation has taken place. Donations to the Parkinson's Society of Canada or the Humane Society would be gratefully accepted.
