Geraldyne (Jerry) Yvonne Carr, 89, passed away December 1, 2021, followed by her beloved cat “Cookie” on December 6.

Geraldyne was born October 23, 1932 in Tacoma, WA. She moved to Kansas City in 1949 and began her career as a telephone operator shortly after.

Her infectious laughter and kind, loving heart will be sorely missed by all those whose lives she touched.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Helen and Clifford Smith; her husband, Gil Carr; and her brother, Gene Smith.

She is survived by her children, Bill Knight (Joy), Danette (Dani) Quisenberry (Scott), Darcie Star; three grandchildren, and her sister, Judi Sortore (Michael).

Jerry will be missed by all. Memorial services will be held at 2 p.m. on Monday December 20, 2021 at Muehlebach Funeral Care, 6800 Troost Ave, Kansas City, MO.
