She was active in several organizations including Self Help for Hard of Hearing People and the I Love Constantine Maroulis fan club.

  1. Heart broken about Gerri. We have been friends for about 40 years. My mother, Etta Feinstein, worked together and became wonderful friends. Karen, Chris and I send our deepest sympathy to the family, especially George and Justin

  2. CandleImageGerri was a customer of El Norteño Molino where she would buy tamales. She was friend like my with Martin Perez. She just recently found me on Facebook. I will miss her

  3. CandleImageGerri, I will truly miss you and you will not be forgotten. I am glad you lived life to the fullest. You traveled a lot, went to many shows & events, enjoyed so many restaurants, visited your family often, loved the casinos & slot group pulls, were an original member of the San Antonio Kickapoo Krew, and you were always there for your friends and family. Gone too soon! 🥰 I love you and will miss our chats and trips to Kickapoo!

  4. To Gerri’s family, my heartfelt sympathy to your loss. I met Gerrie at SHHH meeting and found her to be so compassionate to help others with hearing loss. She was a good friend, took my dog Lily in when I had my son (due to breathing concerns). Even when we moved from San Antonio, Gerrie kept in touch with me, and for that, her friendship meant a lot. She loved her family with her whole heart. Rest in peace, she will never be forgotten.

  5. My most sincerest condolences to a beautiful woman I had the pleasure of meeting. May you RIP 🙏 prayers for the family.

  6. My deepest condolences to Gerri’s family and friends. My heart is so broken. I missed her at our last Kickapoo meeting. Missing her hugs and her smiles. She was such a beautiful soul, and I will never forget her. May she rest in peace. Love you my friend Gerri, till we meet again.

  7. Very sorry to receive the information that Gerri had passed away. She will be missed by people that worked with her during those 39 years. She challenged me to be a better librarian during the years we worked together. I will miss the emails and the monthly lunches we shared with others from Fort Sam. RIP Prayers to George and Justin.
