For many years, Gerry lived a very full and rich life. She was born in Brockton on September 24, 1934 to Bob and Stella Mineikis Stanley. Her brother, Bob, came along a few years later. He and their parents preceded her in death.
She grew up in Brockton and lived there for many years. At age 18, she started her long and very successful career with New England Tel & Tel, which later became AT&T. After her retirement, she and her mother moved to Leisurewoods in Rockland. There she lived for many years, enjoying making new friends and spending time with old friends, as well. Gerry had a passion for golf and spent many happy hours out on a course. She was also quite good!
Another passion she had was traveling. She was able to visit many countries and states, and during those visits, her camera was always at hand. Photography was another thing she enjoyed and did very well.
Gerry was a very giving person, who not only kept in touch with her family and friends, but made sure some of the elderly ones were looked after and had what they needed. The last year or so, she did not enjoy good health herself. She passed away at Life Care in Plymouth on May 4, 2020. She is survived by her sister-in-law, Diane Stanley in Omaha, NE, as well as many cousins, and friends.
Funeral services will not be held, according to her wishes. However, raise a glass, especially one with Limoncello, and toast to her good and long life. She will be buried in Omaha, Nebraska at Mt Auburn Cemetery.
