Geraldine “Gerry” Louise Bourg Zamzow passed away peacefully surrounded by family and joined her Heavenly Father on Saturday, March 13, 2021 at the age of 59.
Gerry was born August 31, 1961 in Thibodaux, Louisiana to James and Louise Bourg. She lived in Raceland, Louisiana with her parents and 4 siblings, Barbara, Linda, Connie, and Jimmy, until she was 5 years old. They moved to Cottonport, LA where she attended Saint Mary’s Catholic School through junior high. When she was a freshman, the family moved to Three Rivers, Texas, and she graduated from Three Rivers High School in 1979. While in Three Rivers, Gerry met the love of her life, Donny Gene Zamzow, and they were married December 22, 1978. They have two children, Jeremy Hubert Zamzow and Jacob Wade Zamzow, and raised their family on their farm in Ray Point, Texas. Gerry worked for Pawlik Water Well services for 20 years as the office manager and retired in 2016.
Gerry was a devoted daughter, sister, wife, mother, and “Oma”. She enjoyed playing dominoes, hunting and fishing with Donny, cooking, eating crawfish with her “special sauce”, playing with her grandchildren, and visiting with family. She and Donny spent many vacations traveling the United States on road trips where they enjoyed seeing the sights and spending time outdoors. She was a Christian woman with a strong faith and was an active member of Our Savior Lutheran Church in Three Rivers, Texas. Gerry was known for her beaming smile, warm hugs, faithfulness, love of her family, and open arms to anyone that met her.
Gerry is preceded in death by her father, James Hubert Bourg; and her baby brother, Larry Jacob Bourg.
