On the Feast of Saint Jude, Monday, October 28th, our beloved Edward Gerard “Jerry” Gill passed away surrounded by his family Jackie, Robert, Marion and Mary Margaret. He was preceded in death by his loving parents Mary and James Gill. A graduate of Central Catholic, he attended Saint Francis University, Indiana University and joined the family business. Hearing a call to the priesthood, he attended Sacred Heart Major Seminary until health issues prevented him from completing his studies. A lover of truth and justice, his childlike confidence in God’s merciful will inspired all whose lives he touched. Always thinking of others, his smile brought instant joy and he was continually seeking ways to add to that joy. Whether it be cards, flowers, gifts, phone calls, prayers, visits, parties, pilgrimages or vacations, if Jerry thought it would make you happy, he would make it happen. Highly regarded for his “kind soul”, “quiet way”, “peaceful cheerfulness”, and “tremendous generosity of spirit”; Jerry spent his life filling the lives of his many friends and loved ones with a multitude of blessings. He leaves a tremendous void that can only be healed by trying to imitate what we have learned from him. Jerry had a great devotion to Our Blessed Mother, the Saints and Holy Angels. In honor of Jerry’s devotion, we pray “Saint Michael the Archangel, defend us in battle, be our safeguard against the wickedness and snares of the devil. May God rebuke him we humbly pray and do Thou, O Prince of the heavenly hosts, by the power of God, cast into hell, satan and all the evil spirits who prowl about the world seeking the ruin of souls. Amen. Mass of Christian Burial will be 12:00 pm, Saturday, November 2, 2019 at Saint Mother Theodore Guerin Chapel, 1122 S. Clinton St. Ft. Wayne, with calling one hour prior.
