Jeanne L. (Bordeaux) Gerber, 87, of Deer Path Trail, passed away peacefully Friday afternoon,
July 14, 2023, at her home with her loving husband at her side.
Born on March 14, 1936, in Montague, Massachusetts, she was the daughter of the late Lionel
and Marion (Welcome) Bordeaux. She was the oldest of their nine children.
She married the love of her life, Norman E. Gerber, on August 27, 1955. They shared 67 years of
Her many enjoyments included her family, being the loudest cheerleader at her husband’s
football games, crossword puzzles, sewing, making quilts, belonging to the Indian Lake crafters,
any activity she could do outside; swimming, hiking, skiing, etc.
The family moved several times due to Norman’s coaching job changes. Jeanne was the glue
that kept it all together through the discomfort of the family’s uprooting and the normal
growing pains of six children. She was at once financial manager, mover, logistician,
psychologist and academic tutor but most importantly a great mom and friend.
Jeanne and Norman retired to their cherished Indian Lake cabin in 1998.

Survivors include her husband, Norman Gerber; daughters: Fay Gerber, Lynn McAdams (Brian)
and Mary Sivalia (Jon); Sons: Michael (Erica), James and Jonathan; 12 grandchildren and 4 great
grandchildren. She is also survived by her sisters: Janice Fuller, Lori Bastarache and Bonnie
Root; her brothers: David, Alan and Denis; many nieces and nephews.
