Grosse Pointe Farms resident Geraldyne (“Gery”) Rounds Henkel, 88 passed away peacefully surrounded by her family on Saturday, October 5th, 2019.

Born in Detroit, Gery lived in Grosse Pointe for most of her life.

She attended Miss Newman’s School, Grosse Pointe South High School, Garland College and Michigan State University.

Following college and for thirty-five years thereafter, Gery was actively involved in Mid-West Hydro-Pierce, Inc., an engineering and manufacturing company founded by her family. During this same period, she was also involved in the Junior League of Detroit as a Vice President and chaired its Poison Control Project.

Gery had a longstanding interest in riding, and for many years, rode to hounds with the Metamora Hunt earning her colors, several hunts in the East, and a season of foxhunting in Ireland. Subsequently, she enjoyed tennis and paddle tennis at the Country Club of Detroit, and membership in the Village Garden Club.

Those who knew Gery loved her. She was loved dearly by her children and grandchildren, but most of all, by her husband, Eddie, to whom she was married 61 year.

Predeceased by her son, Edward (“Trey”) Henkel III, and her husband, Edward Henkel, Jr., Gery is survived by her daughters Geraldyne (Larry) Brennan, Eloise (John) Gates and Heidi (John) McGarry; her grandchildren Geraldyne (Weston) Quasha, Lindsey Johnson, Fordy (Allison), Thomas and Edward Henkel Gates, and, Eloise and Thomas McGarry; and her great grandchild Charlotte Quasha.

The family is also deeply thankful for Debbie and her wonderful team.
