Geraldine (Crawford) Matthews

New Freedom, Pa.


Gerry and her beagle live in New Freedom, Pa.  She was married to Norman Matthews who passed away on May 16, 1993. They met at a square dance in 1955, and they have three children, five grandchildren, and one great grandchild! She worked at the Standard Register in York and is retired.


Her hobby is quilting. Mrs. Jones was her favorite teacher, and Mrs. Jones also got her vote for the most effective teacher at EHS. She enjoys attending high school sports events and events her grandchildren are in.


She sometimes thinks about the good old days, and she misses, “friends and good health” of those days. Gerry is grateful for our modern medical technology.


The thing she is most proud of is …


“Our children.”


Gerry’s message to her classmates is …


“Health and happiness to all of you.”
