Alonnisos Loses a Beloved Resident

It is with great sadness that I report that Gerry Ivison, a longtime time resident of Alonnisos, passed away at her home in the Old Village on Friday, September 8th, a day after her 67th birthday. Her husband Dave was at her side, which was very fitting given that they were essentially inseparable during their nearly 40 years of marriage.Gerry faced down cancer for nine years, and throughout that time kept a very positive outlook, doing her very best to enjoy each and every day. Gerry was a wonderful person with a powerful will to live, a smile that was truly illuminating, and a sense of humor that endeared her to many, many people. To say the least, she will be sorely missed on this island by anyone who had the great pleasure to meet her and get to know her.

This small photo montage of her life was on display at Panselinos Restaurant after her funeral, which was attended by numerous friends from Alonnisos, the UK, and several other places as well.

Should you be inspired to do so, please do send an email message of sympathy to Dave Court by using the email link on this page of their Ivicourt.com website.
