Geraldine “Gerry” A. Meyer, 86, of Elk Haven Nursing Home and formerly of 1018 S. Michael Street, passed away on Friday, October 21, 2022 at Elk Haven Nursing Home.

She was born December 29, 1935, in DuBois, daughter of the late Joseph and Rose Perry Garofalo.  Gerry was a graduate of Reynoldsville High School and DuBois Business College.  In 1958, she married Eugene Lorelli, who preceded her in death in 1959.

On June 22, 1968, Gerry married Harold W. Meyer, who preceded her in death on May 13, 2010.  In that same year, Gerry and Harold moved to St. Marys where they made a life together and raised their family.

She is survived by three loving daughters: Cindi Lorelli of Erie, Beth Upperman (Kevin) of St. Marys, and Lori Clinger (David) of St. Marys; four grandchildren: William, Karrie, Destiny, and Kalani; and four great-grandchildren: Hunter, Tekoda, Jonathan, and Evelyn.

In addition to her husband and parents, she was preceded in death by her sister, Dolores Garofalo and her brother, Thomas.  She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.

Gerry was a member of the Queen of the World Church and set an example of service to her community by volunteering her time in the cafeterias of Queen of the World School and Elk County Christian High School.  She enjoyed polka and square dancing with her husband and playing cards with friends.  She had a fondness for pets and an incredible love for her family.  She will be missed.
