Geraldine “Gerry”  McGrath died peacefully in her sleep at home, with family nearby, on September 12, 2023. She is survived by her four children: Loretta McGrath (Tawnya Laveta), P. Christopher McGrath, Matt McGrath, and Julie Bartol; grandchildren: Matthew McGrath (Colleen McGrath), Amber Bartol, Dakota Bartol, and Wyatt Bartol; her new great-granddaughter, Saylor Rose McGrath; sisters: Isabelle Rzeszutek and Cathy Gramlich (Mike Sullivan); brother: Joe Gramlich (Renee Gramlich); many cousins, nieces, nephews, and dear friends, especially Rose Huber and Pauline Bailey. She is preceded in death by her parents, Joseph Gerald and Isabella Gramlich, brother James Gramlich, brother-in-law Ron Rzeszutek and son-in-law, Patrick Bartol. 

Gerry graduated from St. Joseph’s Catholic School in Warrington and Cardinal Dougherty High School in Philadelphia. Her professional career as an administrator spanned over 35 yrs, most prominently at Henkels & McCoy, and the non-profit and banking/finance sectors. 

Having deep empathy for the suffering of others, Gerry served community members as a guide and mentor, providing wise and gentle counsel to those in need. Gerry’s life revolved around her family and friends, her love and care of her land, home, and flowers, time at the beach, and reading novels in quiet moments. She will be remembered as a woman of great faith, tenacity, resilience, resourcefulness and humility. Above all, Gerry loved and cared for many people, had a deep love of life, of square dancing with friends, attending cultural events and of appreciating the beauty of the natural world & seasons.
