Patricia E. (Perry) Gerrish, 72, of Braintree, MA, formerly of Hingham, died December 28, 2019 in Weymouth, peacefully with family by her side.

Daughter of Herman & Lillian Perry, Patricia (Pat) leaves behind her husband of 49 years, John E. Gerrish of Norwell, daughter Elaine P. Schirmer and her husband Ralph F. Schirmer Jr. of Hingham, grandchildren Joseph & Julia Schirmer and sister-in-law Diane Fortier and her husband Ed of Scituate.

Pat was a devoted Bruins fan, enjoyed her Corvette GTO, her boat and roller skating. She worked as a bookkeeper in her earlier years. At the age of 39, Pat suffered a cerebral hemorrhage, but that didn’t stop her drive and smile. She was upbeat, kind and enjoyed helping others. She will be missed by all that knew her.
