Mrs. Geraldine Miller “Gerry” Sheek, 95, died Sunday, Dec. 6, 2020 at Davie Nursing and Rehab.

She was born on Oct. 20, 1925 in Davie County to the late Chal V. and Ida Markland Miller. After graduation from Mocksville High School, where she was a standout basketball player, she worked for many years at Western Auto. She married Gilbert George Sheek of Mocksville and moved to Charlotte. She enjoyed playing Bridge with her girlfriends, watching UNC basketball, and cooking for her son and “all the boys,” as she would say.  If you left her house hungry, it was your own fault.  There was always plenty of food and love. She was committed to her faith in our Savior and her church. Her most cherished and loved were her three grandchildren.

Survivors: her son, Gilbert “Gil” Miller Sheek (Sandy) of Mocksville; grandchildren, Carley, Brady, and Benjamin Sheek; special friend, Josie Miller; and many nieces and nephews.

A graveside service was to be conducted at 2 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 9 in Rose Cemetery with the Rev. A. Shane Nixon officiating.
