Geraldine "Gerri" Cryan passed away on Thursday, November 1, 2012, at the Parkcliffe Alzheimer's Community, surrounded by her loving family. She was born in Toledo, Ohio on November 9, 1921 to Jacob and Cloetta (Durliat) Rossler. She was a proud graduate of Central Catholic High School, Class of 1939. On October 27, 1945, she was married to Robert (Bob) Cryan at Immaculate Conception Church. Together they raised six children and were very active in the church.
Gerri was employed by the former Ohio Bell Telephone Co., Walbridge Cleaners, and the Catholic Charities of the Toledo Diocese, where she was the switchboard operator, a position she enjoyed, retiring at the age of 73. In retirement she enjoyed sewing and her many trips to Las Vegas and Maine; lunches and vacations with her retired friends, and dancing at the Margaret Hunt Senior Center and the DC Ranch. Sunday family dinners at her home were the highlight of the week. Spending special grandma days with all of her grandchildren were cherished times by grandma and grandchildren alike.

She is survived by her daughters Kathy (Doug) Biggie and Mary Ann (Rick) Weber and sons, Mike (Laury), Terry, Tom (Ralph) and Larry (Kim). 13 grandchildren; Brian (Tracy), Stacy (Ken), Kristen (Jeff), Kurt (Jenn), Jennifer (Bill), Kim (Justin), Kendra, Jim (Senait), Rachel, Robert, Sara, Joe and Matt; 15 great grandchildren and her sister-in-law Mary Rossler.
