Gerry was a loving wife, mother and friend. She was born to Thelma (Eblin) and Donald Nourse. She grew up in the Minford community with her brother, Don Nourse.
She attended Mercy School of Nursing and was a compassionate, caring nurse throughout her life – working at Mercy Hospital and the Community Action Clinic.
Gerry married Bob Wilson in January 1961. Together they raised their three daughters, Lynn (Rod), Jill (Keith), and Sara (Gill) in a home full of laughter.
She was passionate about gardening, the Cincinnati Reds, singing in the choir at Cornerstone UMC and caring for others. She loved to joke and her laughter was contagious. Gerry never met a stranger.
Blessed to be her grandchildren are: Andrew, Michael, Reilly Clark; Zach, Luke, Sydney Harris, and Emma and Leah McKinney.
Above is a piece of our Mama’s obituary. Our inspiration (for this business and so much more) has passed. While we miss her more than words can describe, she is finally free. No more illness, no more sickness – she is whole. We are incredible thankful for that. So while our hearts hurt to the point of not being able to catch our breath, we are also filled with complete joy in knowing she is healed and in heaven rejoicing.
Our Dad, her three daughters and her brother were all able to be with her as she passed. It was a beautiful moment that we are so thankful to have had. We were able to walk the loving, compassionate, pistol of a woman who brought us into this world – into Jesus’ arms.
Please excuse us as we take time to pause and remember our Mama (like how fiercly she loved us and how she loved to play jokes - for example waking her younger brother in July and telling him Santa had been there.) We’ll be back to join you in two weeks.
