"Grease," a 1978 American musical film directed by Ran- dal Kleiser and based on War- ren Casey's and Jim Jacobs's musical of the same name, is about two lovers in a 1959 high school. The film stars John Travol- ta, Olivia Newton-John, Stockard Channing and Jeff Conaway. It was a box office and critical success. Although Travolta was al- ready famous from "Saturday Night Fever" and "Welcome Back Kotter," "Grease" reaf- firmed his status as a super- star. Newton-John's fame also reached new heights after the movie released. The movie received five Golden Globe Award nomina- tions in 1979, and was the highest grossing movie of 1978, and the highest-grossing movie musical at the time, surpassing 1965's "The Sound Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta of Music." duets, "You're the One That I The movie's soundtrack Want" and"Summer Nights," was a number one album in were number one hits and ap- many different countries.

She worked as an office manage for JCPenney for over 15 years before moving with her husband to Quincy in 1975 where she managed apartments, worked for Quin- cy Drug Store and traveled the country helping her son build a national seminar busi- ness. Gerry enjoyed bowling, was a master at "Jeopardy," ran to Reno whenever she could, loved to entertain her family and friends with sumptuous feasts, great conversation, hardy laughter and always a sense of humor. She will be deeply missed by all who knew her. Survivors include her son Ed and daughter Kathy; sister Mickey and brother Dan; granddaughter Olivia, grand- sons Michael and wife Megan, Chris and wife Michelle, Ben and wife Rachel, Sam and Bri- an; great-grand daughter Em- ma and great-grandsons Jack and Austin. Although named the Beemer Bash, held Sept. 17 - 19, and sponsored by Central California BMW Riders, other motorcycle riders on Harleys and Hondas were welcome at the private weekend gathering at the fairgrounds in Quincy. In an oxymoronic moment, a sleek red Ducati sat in front of the Peppard Cabin as friends sat on the cabin's porch much as they did when transport was powered by horses, not horsepower. Dave and Lynda Kimerer of Yuba City are first-timers at the Bash, but they frequently ride the La Porte-Quincy-Bucks Summit route.
