She was a graduate of Marycliff High School.
Gerry is survived by her husband of 62 years, Ernest J. Pupo; her son, Ernest A. Pupo of Spokane, WA; her granddaughter, Misty D. (James) Leber and two great-grandsons: Trenton and Matthew Leber of Firestone, CO; her aunt, Della Travo; and numerous cousins, nieces and nephews.
She was preceded in death by her parents: Angelina and Antonio Travo; her sisters: Mary Aquino and Julia Monteith; and her nephew, Michael Aquino.
Gerry was a devoted wife, mother and grandmother.
She took great pleasure in cooking for her family and friends over the years.
Her Italian kitchen was the heart of her home.
Leaving there hungry was absolutely not an option.
She was dearly loved and will be sorely missed by all who knew her.
The family wishes to express their gratitude to the staff at Avalon Care Center for the tender loving care Gerry received during her stay.
She never failed the mention how much she appreciated all of you.
You now have a champion in heaven to watch over you, the way you watched over her.
God bless you.
Also, we wish to thank Paul Murphy for his many many kindnesses toward Gerry.
She now has your back Paul, and a special thanks to Linda Monteith for all the many hours spent with Gerry.
