Geraldine “Geri” Mary Lou Wainscott of Cass Lake, Minnesota, passed away unexpectedly at her home on December 25, 2018. Gerri was born in Cass Lake on October 10, 1952, to Louie “Hurricane” Jackson and Mary Jane Roberts. She was adopted when she was three years old and grew up in Augusta, Kansas where she went on to attend college for two years.

Gerri loved animals and served as an advocate for Red Lake Rosie’s Dog Rescue. She was also a volunteer for Leech Lake Legacy animal rescue. She fostered many pets over the years, always supporting animal rights. Gerri enjoyed spending time with her grand-nieces and nephews and also loved going to the casino with her beloved son William and playing the slots. She had a generous heart and was always helpful to a fault.
