She returned to the workforce and was the Bursar at Loyola University Medical School until her retirement.

Gerry loved to celebrate her Czech heritage with food, family, friends and membership in Sokol, CSA, The Czech Garden Club, the Czech Genealogy Society, and more recently, the Stickney Golden Agers Club.  A lifetime member of Sokol, she fondly recalled stories of going to various Sokol leadership camps throughout the Midwest, the camaraderie she had with fellow Sokol members and actively participated in Sokol classes well into her early eighties.
