Gerri Reichert, 71, of Greeley, Colorado, passed away Sunday, October 4, 2020 at North Colorado Medical Center. She was born July 22, 1949 in Greeley to Robert Kenneth and Eunice Louise (Stolte) Reinick.

Being raised and educated in Greeley, Gerri graduated from Greeley West High School in 1967. After graduation, she attended Joslins Cosmetology School in Denver. She worked at Joslins in Greeley until she retired in 1972.

My heart goes out to you all for the loss of Gerri.

I have such fond memories of our dance years together. Teaching Lynn and Cheri and having Gerri costume our dancers for years. She was a genius! Then of course, the cast picnics after the shows and Keith was always there.

Try to remember the good times. She is a beautiful soul who will watch over her loved ones. Keep her in your hearts as I will. My thoughts are with you. Jerri Sweet

Geri was one of a kind. When I first came to Greeley, she and Keith were wonderful supports to my family. We laughed for hours and enjoyed the years we knew her. She will be missed. God bless Keith and and the whole family who mourn their loss as they rejoice in Geri's eternal gain.
