Geraldine M.  Metzger (nee Ferro), age 88 passed away on July 21, 2020. 

Born in Philadelphia, Gerry attended St. Bernard School where she met her husband Harrison,  and right after graduating St. Hubert High School she married him. She loved children. After raising 6 children of her own, her days of caring for children were not over and she went back to work at a Pediatric doctor's office. After finally retiring, she and her husband relocated to the Poconos. She was a Eucharistic Minister at St. Bernadette Catholic Church and taught Sunday school classes. Gerry loved  baking, reading, dancing, singing, camping and most especially, spending time with her grandchildren, making each and every one of them feel extra special. 

She was a kind, gentle and peaceful soul and was adored by her family.

Wife of the late Harrison. Beloved mother of Harrison (Bernice), Kathleen (Bob) Scheiblein, Stephen (Regina), Christopher (Lisa), the late Thomas and the late George. She is survived by 16  devoted grandchildren, 26 loving great-grandchildren and 3 cherished great great grandchildren. Dear sister in law of Michael (Carol) and Margaret Mary (the late Joseph) Santora.
