Christy attended the Public Schools of Miami Dade County. After relocating to South Carolina, she was employed with several entities, until her health declined.

Christy, commonly known to family as “Monique” was a strong outgoing woman. She was a very outspoken, lovable, and fun to be around person that was always the life of the party everywhere she went.

I will never forget her last speech to me "Never put someone of your sister don't treat her like trash that's your little sister be her older sister and let her look up to you". I will never forget her last time hugging me in Walmart Telling me she loves me. And I will never forget her last words to me "Brianna please scratch my feet". Love Christy Gerralds Daughter,Brianna
