July 28, 1937 - September 4, 2010

Eugenia Rush Gerrard was born on July 28, 1937 in Bryan, Texas, the eldest of three beloved children of Eugene Alvin and Dorothy Logue Rush. After a brief illness, Eugenia passed away peacefully at home in La Jolla, California, surrounded by family, on September 4, 2010.

Eugenia joyously crafted an adventurous life, one well-lived by any measure. The brightest star in the sky of almost all who knew her, Eugenia will be remembered as a transformative figure, a sweet, complicated, emotionally engaged and generous woman. Throughout her seventy-three years, Eugenia passionately pursued, nurtured and maintained complex relationships with an enormous constellation of very fortunate people.

Eugenia grew up in College Station, Texas. She graduated from A & M Consolidated High School in 1955 and from the University of Texas at Austin in 1958. As a longtime resident of Berkeley, California, Eugenia was actively involved in the League of Women Voters, and co-founded SAGE, a ground-breaking actualization program for senior living. After moving to San Diego, California in 1987, Eugenia built a thriving psychotherapy practice. Her deep commitment to that work and to the well-being of her clients will continue to bear fruit for many years to come. Her incredibly full life also included many trips abroad, sailing, and art school, living in a trailer in San Francisco and on a sailboat in Hawaii. If she found it interesting, she did it.

Eugenia is survived, mourned and celebrated by Donald Gerrard, her husband of more than forty years, brothers Alex and Jody Rush, daughter Renee McCrary Kirk, sons Bren and Sean McCrary, and most adored and doted upon grandchildren Bryn Kirk, Sienna Kirk, Caidan Speth-McCrary and Sarah McCrary.

While no words can express our collective loss, let it be known to all that Eugenia was a rare and beautiful spirit who continues to be loved and appreciated by all whom she came into contact with.

A celebration of Eugenia's life was held on Saturday, October 2, 2010 in Rancho Santa Fe, California. For more information, please go to, log in, and search for "Eugenia Gerrard."
