McDONALD — “It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great-grandmother.” Geraldine “Jerrie” Stitt Unger, 87, died at 10:22 am on Wednesday, November 16, 2022 at her daughter’s home.

She was born in Rimersburg, Pennsylvania, on September 13, 1935, the daughter of the late Granville and Mabel Murray Stitt.

Jerrie held many jobs throughout her adult life, but the one job she enjoyed the most was “the popcorn lady” at Hills Department Store.

What brought her the most joy in life were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved watching “Hoarders” and “Family Feud” on television and shopping at Walmart.

Her husband, William Unger, whom she married on June 28, 1958, died on May 17, 2013.

She leaves behind to mourn her passing, her daughters, Marsha (Kenny) Lowe of Niles, Tammy (Brian) Lauer of McDonald and Lisa (Steve) Jordan of Mineral Ridge; her grandchildren, Mike (Kari) Lowe, Ashley (Grant) Lowe, Nikki Lowe, Emily Best, Joe (Polly) Toman, Brittany (Ross) Thompson, Cody (Carley) Jordan, Joe (Kayla) Mohn, Dylan (Sarah) Mohn , Maureen (John) Gatta and Maribeth Lauer; 11 great-grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter, expected in March 2023; two brothers, Gerald (Gwen) Stitt and Ray (Ethel) Stitt; a sister, Mary (Frank) Smith; and two sisters-in-law, Kathy Stitt (Denny) and Kathy Stitt (Bob).

In addition to her parents and husband, Jerrie was preceded in death by a daughter, Debbie Mohn; a great-grandson, Hunter Toman; two brothers, Bob and Denny Stitt; a sister, Jean Bigley; and her beloved dog, Sara.

The family would like to thank caretaker Tammy Gilliam, who made Mum’s life complete and enabled her to be independent for so long. Also to Hospice of the Valley nurse, Danielle, and assistant, Sylvia, for their excellent care.
