Obituary for Gloria N. Gerhard

Gloria N. Gerhard, 84, of Hamburg, passed away Saturday, September 19, 2020 in her residence.

Born in Maidencreek Twp., she was the daughter of the late Paul A. and Minnie M. (Beck) Kemmerer. She was a member of Zion's Church, Windsor Twp. Gloria was generous, selfless, and always thought of others first. Her wish was to have her body be donated to medical research but due to extenuating circumstances, this was not possible. She was an avid gardener, enjoyed reading, needlepoint, and travelling in the past few years with Dennis, especially to Alaska.

She is survived by two sons: Baron M. Gerhard, husband of Kathleen, and Bradley P. Gerhard; a daughter: Melanie S. (Gerhard) Harris, wife of John; four grandchildren: Nicholas and Connor Harris, and Ethan and Emily Gerhard; a step-granddaughter: Heather Beaver, wife of Ben and two great-granddaughters: Annie and Riley Withelder. She is also survived by three sisters: Betty M. (Kemmerer) Johns wife of Douglas, Dorothy E. (Kemmerer) Cohler wife of Dr. Alan; and Ruth E. (Kemmerer) Kaucher, wife of Charles. She is also survived by her best friend and loving companion: Dennis Clemens. She was predeceased by a brother: Ralph J. "Dewey" Kemmerer.

Services will be announced at a later date. Memorial contributions may be sent to: Zion's Church, 770 Zion Church Road, Hamburg, PA 19526 Leibensperger Funeral Homes, Inc., Hamburg is in charge of arrangements. For online condolences, please visit

Dear Melanie, John and the boys.....wanted to let you know I am thinking about you and praying for you all. Our mothers love us unconditionally and losing them, no matter what age, is soul crushing. You will have bad moments, but you will also have wonderful ones, full of everything she ever said to you and all the love you knew would be there. She's your angel now...when things are tough, close your eyes and feel her and hugs to you both

To my cousins Baron, Melanie, and Brad - our deepest sympathies in the loss of your mother. I hadn't seen Gloria in decades (last time was at Moselem Springs Inn) but I remember her smiles, laughter, and warmth.
My sincerest hope is that your happy memories will give you comfort and peace.
