Memories Timeline


  1. We are deeply saddened by the passing of Gerri. We knew her through Dr Mac. Him and my husband were big buddies, he did surgery on my husband 3 times and he was a great inspiration to us always. We went to see him in the Lexington hospital and when we got there Gerri came to the door and I started to tell her who we were and she said I know who you are, but we had never met until that day. She was a fine lady and we will keep this family in our thoughts and prayers in the many difficult days ahead. Our hearts are broken for the family. May God comfort, strengthen, and give you the understanding to get through the many days ahead. May God Bless this Family Always.

  2. Thoughts and Prayers for Lowery and her brothers; her Mom was a very strong and compassionate woman and helped to hold my Mother together so many years ago after a car wreck while Dr Mack saved my life. May God Bless You and Keep You through this trying time…

  3. Prayers for family and remembering Happy days in the 70’s and 80’s When we were all young . Beauty and. Grace were my memories of you . Molly

  4. I have wonderful memories of Gerry back through all the years. She was a beautiful person in every way. I know she will be greatly missed and I will always remember her.. I send my deepest sympathy, Lowrey , I knew you a little when you lived in Asheville, and to the rest of Gerry\’s family.

  5. Somehow fitting that Gerry died on Valentine’s Day, as I remember her as a “sweetheart” of a person. I can see her now in her big, clunky “H” sweater, getting all pink in her pretty face, pouring heart and soul into leading the Harrodsburg crowd in cheers for the Pioneer basket ball team. Another memory is of her dancing with her longtime boyfriend to the last dance of the evening in the old gym, while the rest of us gave them the floor for what seemed like the most romantic moment ever. Most telling about who Gerry was is my memory of her extraordinary kindness to me, a somewhat younger girl, and how much out of her way she went to be welcome me feel as I moved into high school from junior high.

  6. Gerry was a longtime neighbor and supportive friend. . For my entire 30 years on Lancaster Road, I could look out the back window and see her light on. She was brave beautiful, classy and caring. She loved her family and friends, history and preservation. The world is a better place because of her. Wherever she is, I think her light is shining.

  7. What an honor to know this beautiful lady! Your family is in my heart and prayers! Heaven has gained a beautiful angel for sure!

  8. Jim and I thought so highly of Gerry and Mac as our neighbors. And they, with their children, welcomed us… especially Jim, as dear friends. Gerri so warm and welcoming always. Rest In Peace in peace sweet Gerry. And condolences to all.. especially her children and grandchildren.

  9. My condolences to her family and loved ones. Her brother\’s death (George) before we left Harrodsburg and moved to Lexington shook my world and made me think for the first time, how fleeting and fragile our lives are. May God give her eternal rest!

  10. So sorry for the loss of this nice lady. One of the things I will always remember about your family is how Gerry and Mac took my son, Scott, in as a teenager to work with them in Gerry\’s beautiful gardens. He loved working with her plants and I am sure this influenced his choice of careers after college. She will be missed. May God comfort you all.
