UPDATED MEMORIAL SERVICE AND DONATION INFORMATION FOR GERRY LARGAY
Friends and Family
I am sharing updated information on the memorial service for Gerry, including a time change for the service (now at 9
a.m.) and lodging details for out-of-town guests. Thank you for your support over these last several weeks. I am
looking forward to seeing many of you in Atlanta on Oct. 12.
• The memorial service will be held for Gerry at St. Brigid Catholic Church in John’s Creek, Georgia outside of
Atlanta on Saturday, October 12 at 9 a.m.
St. Brigid Catholic Church
3400 Old Alabama Road
John’s Creek, GA 30022
Key Information on the Memorial Service
• The start time has been moved up to 9 a.m. in order to help accommodate a previously scheduled wedding
taking place at the church at 2 p.m., preparations for which begin at 1 p.m.
• Following the 9 a.m. Mass (performed by Father Mark Beckman of Nashville), personal remarks will be made in
the sanctuary by a small group of friends and family members.
• Following those remarks, guests are invited to stay for a brunch-style reception in the adjoining Corbett Hall.
We will need to adjourn no later than 1 p.m.
• Hotel Arrangements: A block of 30 rooms has been reserved for both Friday and Saturday nights at the Holiday
Inn Express, 2950 Mansell Road, Alpharetta, GA 30022. The nightly rate is $75 and includes breakfast and free
Internet. To book a room, you MUST call the hotel DIRECTLY at 770-552-0006 and reference the Gerry Largay
Memorial Service. Do NOT call the 800 number as they do not know of this special rate. For any questions or
problems, please call. Ms. Kerri McEwin, Senior Manager of Events & Tradeshows, at 404-459-7191. She made the
arrangements with the hotel. If additional rooms are needed beyond the block of 30, there is a contingency plan in
place for that.
• In lieu of flowers, donations can be made in Gerry’s honor to either of two organizations, the Nature
Conservancy, an organization long near and dear to her, and the Maine Association of Search and Rescue, which
has led the search efforts.
