One of our own lost her sister yesterday.
@areawoman, admin extraordinaire, animal lover, witty, intelligent and all around beautiful person, lost her sister yesterday.
This was a sudden loss. Mary Gerba, areawoman’s older sister, died, suddenly, in her home yesterday morning.
Mary and her family have suffered great loss over the years. They lost their home to hurricane Sandy. Then, suddenly, just four years ago, she lost her husband, father of her children.
Now, this family has lost their mother, sister, aunt and friend
Mary’s children are in their 20s and are unable to pay for all the expenses to properly say goodbye to their mother. There is no life insurance.
Areawoman has been moderating JackpineRadicals since day one. She may not post much but she’s always watching over us. She’s hard working and one of the funniest, kindest people I know. I’m proud to call her friend.
Friends of the family have started a gofundme to help pay for funeral and cremation expenses. If you are able, please send what you can to help.
Thank you so much for any help you can give.
Our deepest sympathies on your heartbreaking loss, areawoman. You are loved and appreciated.
Mary and her daughter
Anyone who wants to donate but can’t use gofundme for whatever reason, you can use the donate to the site and send me a pm. I will send it directly to areawoman
