Geraldine M. “Gerry” Walter, 87

February 09, 2021

Geraldine M. Walter, 87, of Lancaster, passed away on February 9, 2021 at Moravian Manor. Born and raised in Lancaster, she was the daughter of the late George and Teresa (Hecker) Schreder.

She attended Lancaster Catholic High School, graduating class of 1951. In 1953 Gerry married the love of her life, Robert F. Walter, with whom she shared 67 years of marriage. She worked for Turkey Hill Minit Markets in their payroll department for over 20 years.

Gerry was an avid reader and enjoyed getting together with her long-time girlfriends from high school and playing cards. Along with her husband, she traveled across Europe, Africa, the United States, including Hawaii and Alaska, and Canada. One of her favorite activities recently was Rock Steady Boxing.

She was a life-long member of St. Joseph Catholic Church, and volunteered with St. Joe’s preparing funeral lunches, and with St. Anne’s making brown bag lunches.

She will be missed by her husband, Robert F. Walter, her sons; Robert J. Walter, companion of Linda Scott, of Lancaster and Stephen M. Walter of Carlisle, and many dear cousins.

Gerry is preceded in death by her parents and her brothers, George J, Charles, Joseph, and Fritz Schreder.

A Funeral Service will be held Monday, February 15, 2021 at 10:00am at Charles F. Snyder Jr. Funeral Home & Crematory at 3110 Lititz Pike, Lititz, PA 17543. Guests will be received for a time of viewing prior to the service starting at 9:00am. Interment will follow at St. Joseph’s New Catholic Cemetery, Bausman.

I am so very sorry for your loss.  I always enjoyed talking with Gerry and her determination ran deep.  I told her she reminded me of my aunt for whom I was especially fond.  I did not know that she assisted with funeral lunches at St Joe.  She probably knew my mother who did the same!
My condolensces to you and your family.

Dear Bob and Family,
   I had the pleasure of working with Gerry at Rock Steady Boxing. When I first met her she was determined to jump. She couldn’t understand why she just couldn’t get her feet off the floor. We tried it many times and when we were successful she got this big smile. Gerry was a very warm and friendly person. I will miss her. My sympathy to all of you .
