KRAMER Gerry passed away on January 10, 2014 from complications related to ALS at the far too young age of 60. Gerry lived her life with a remarkable and endearing combination of sophistication and wonder. She found joy in nature, music, food, mystery stories, crosswords, whimsy and all things beautiful and true. She earned a Master’s Degree in Education from Lesley College, helping students of all ages and abilities to reach their reading and writing goals. She was also an award winning photographer, a fine writer, a naturally gifted singer and along with her husband, a collector of art. Their collection of Japanese iron teapots was showcased in a major exhibition at the Morikami Museum in Florida in 2009. But her real passion was connecting with people, ever open to meeting them and understanding their stories. She was a loyal and interested friend with a sympathetic ear and positive spirit, always ready to cheer a triumph, share a special moment, or try to help in times of need, she will be terribly missed by all. Gerry is survived by Peter, her husband of 28 years. They met at the Cambridge Art Association in 1983 when Peter was serving on the Board of Directors and Gerry joined the organization as its new Director. She is also survived by her sister Connie Festo Lafond of Wakefield, Massachusetts, her sisters Rosanne Festo and Mary Grace Festo and her brothers Bill and Bob Festo of Stamford, Connecticut. A Memorial celebration service will be held at the Mann and Rodgers Funeral Home, 44 Perkins Street (corner of South Huntington Ave) Jamaica Plain Thursday January 16 from 5:00-8:00 P.M.
