Born in Iowa to James and Essie Fitzgerald, Gerry was the middle of three siblings.

Gerry worked as a dance instructor and performed in various ballets as part of a Southern California dance troupe.
Gerry moved to Fresno after college to sing at Club Margo during WWII. While working there, she met U.S. Army Lt. Walter Kozub and they were married on June 21, 1945.
Gerry and Walt had one child, son James Kozub.
Gerry worked for a number of years for Arthur's Toy Store in Fresno, but her greatest satisfaction came from performing volunteer work at local convalescent hospitals and a hospice.
Gerry was preceded in death by her husband, Walter Kozub; her sister, Rita Mason; and her brother, Lowell Fitzgerald.
She is survived by James and Marianne Kozub; her grandaughter Gabriella; nieces, Jill Grumbles and Lisa Fitzgerald; and nephew, Donald Mason.
