Gerry Ann enjoyed being outdoors and loved gardening indoors and out. She also enjoyed reading, cooking, scrapbooking, sewing, and any other types of crafting. She especially loved having craft nights with her girls. She loved any time that she could gather with her family. Bible journaling was a huge love of hers.
