Geraldine "Gerry" Adcock, age 103, of Bedford Township passed away peacefully on Saturday morning, October 2, 2021. She was born in Bedford Township, MI in 1918 to Casper and Alice Uldriks. Being one of 9 children, Gerry had to help take care of her younger siblings and work on the farm while attending school. She attended Kirby School, Level Park School and Battle Creek Central.

After her husband, Arthur Olaf Adcock, passed away in 1980 she decided to move to Lakeland, FL and had 8 wonderful years making new friends and memories, and then returned to Battle Creek to be near her family. Her hobbies included crocheting, playing cards and board games, and embroidery. She loved to discuss politics and current events. Gerry was also very active in the community as part of the Bedford Republican Club, Eastern Star, Hookers (Crochet Club), a Red Cross Volunteer, and a Lioness.
