On March 8, 2020, Gerry Cousins, 79, of Kennett Square, PA passed away in Penn Medicine, Chester County Hospital due to a Heart Attack and Pneumonia.
All services are being postponed.
Gerry Cousins was born in Manhattan, NY to John and Lucy Rosalia on January 31, 1941 and grew up going to public school in Queens, NY. Her first career was working for Miki Moto Pearls on the 97th floor of the Empire State Building. On November 9, 1963, she married Thomas Cousins in Sacred Heart Parish in Queens, NY. Together, they raised four children.
However, Gerry was more than just a homemaker; she was the center of the family’s universe and the life of every party. As she considered it, she was a ‘Domestic Engineer’ and was able to happily go above and beyond for her four children on the salary of an NYPD officer. Gerry cared for her family and everyone else as though they were family.
Gerry is preceded in death by her parents, John and Lucy Rosalia. Gerry is survived by Tom, her husband, and her children: Bob, Cathy, John and James. She is also survived by in-laws Lynn Cousins, Chris Campbell, Tracy Cousins, Kim Cousins; and her nine beautiful grandchildren: Sean Cousins, Stephanie Campbell, Ali Cousins, Caroline Cousins, Sarah Cousins, Matthew Cousins, Aidan Campbell, Alex Cousins and Faith Cousins.
