Barb, Pat, Lynne, This is a beautiful tribute to your mom. I know the photo was taken many years after I last saw her, but the smile and the twinkle in the eyes are just as I remember. It made me smile.

I had the pleasure of knowing Mrs. Corn through her daughters, especially Barb. Mrs. Corn was known for her love of travel and her amazing pies. I was the recipient of some of those pies and her reputation of being of a wonderful baker was not exaggerated. Her travels with her three daughters brought her great joy as she continued her lifelong quest of being a lifelong learner. Her service to others, her many friendships and her love of family, have given many gifts to those that were fortunate to know her. My deepest sympathy to a great family. I know Gerry Corn will be greatly missed.
With much love,

I had the privilege of being your Mother’s hairdresser at Asbury. I haven’t met many people that have enjoyed life as much as she did, I can only hope to aspire to be like her. Thank you for sharing the beautiful video tribute. I will always remember her beautiful smile.

On May 30, 2004, I took Mother to the WWII Memorial--the day after its dedication. I insisted she wear her Navy hat. Not only did I have the fun of seeing her meet her first bikers (all coming up to "thank you for your service, Ma'am!"), but to see something even more touching. She and an Army nurse were sharing memories. They stood in front of the wall of stars, each star representing 100 dead soldiers or sailors. Then I realized that the job of these nurses was to keep stars OFF of that wall. I had the honor of congratulating them on helping to make the wall smaller.

We always enjoyed our dinner and bridge games with Gerry and Lynne. Gerry was a patient and encouraging bridge coach, with a great sense of humor and a warmth that made our times together very special. As others have noted, Gerry was also a great conversationalist. We will remember her with great fondness. Beth and Jack

Larry and I echo sentiments expressed by Susan and Bruce. It was always a treat to have her join our New Year's celebration--sometimes dancing. Best to her lovely family.

Dear Lynne and family,
I send my condolences to you all at this sad time. What a fine and lovely person your mother was! I had a short visit with her last November, and although she had a broken bone at the time! we had a nice chat in which she told me about her grandchildren and asked about mine. I believe she had a very curious mind, she was interested in so many different people and subjects. I always enjoyed visiting her when I met up with Lynne.
Thank you for this lovely memory book and giving us all a chance to remember this remarkable woman.

We knew Gerry through Lynne. Our interactions with her were mostly a wave and a smile every now and again as her daughter escorted her back and forth from the car on the weekends she visited. What we knew about her came from Lynne. It was easy to tell that Lynne was proud and slightly in awe of her mother and her ability to overcome life's obstacles head-on all the while playing Bridge like a pro. We know she will be missed.
