Carole I. Gehrig, 85, of Schuylkill Haven, passed away Tuesday, May 25th, at Lehigh Valley Medical Center-Cedar Crest, Allentown.

Born in Cressona, on July 13, 1935, a daughter of the late Florence (Heinze) and Guy L. Hoy. She was the widow of William L. "Bill" Gehrig, Jr.

She was a member of Jerusalem Lutheran Church, Schuylkill Haven. She was a graduate of Cressona High, where she made lifelong girlfriends. In high school she played basketball and softball and her love of sports continued throughout her life. She knew all the coaches and players in the NFL, better than those "in" the NFL. She was an avid fan of the Pittsburgh Steelers, warning new tenants that on Sundays she would be yelling at the TV when the Steelers were playing, and that nothing was wrong, unless they were losing. She would often be seen twirling her 'Terrible Towel' around her head.

She retired from Hamburg Center, Hamburg.

Carole loved her girls, grand kids and great granddaughter dearly, she was a loving Nan, Nanny, Mom or to them all. Although she was not a fan of cats, Sophie chose her to be her Nanny. She was a member of the Senior Citizens of Meadowbrook Center, where she enjoyed exercise classes and weekly get togethers. She loved the casinos, vacationing at Dewey Beach, watching Hallmark Movies, all types of flowers and sitting out in the yard with a good book. She was always ready to crochet a personalized baby blanket to pass the time and was an excellent seamstress. She would make Easter outfits for her daughters and granddaughters. A lover of music and a pianist, she instilled that into her girls and grandchildren throughout their lives.

Most importantly, Carole was a strong-willed, independent, loving woman who passed those traits along to her daughters Cynthia Moore, Wernersville, Karen Dudley, Pottsville, Wendy Schuller, Schuylkill Haven and Janet Meck, Orwigsburg. LOVE YOU MORE, MOM.

She is also survived by her grandchildren Sara Dudley, Julia and Emily Schuller and Maria and Michael Russo; great granddaughter, Camryn; sister Gail Knauf, Ohio.

In addition to her husband, she is preceded in death by her brothers Donald, Guy, Jr., Kenneth and Gerald and a sister Joan Luckenbill.

A Celebration of Life Memorial will be held at Jerusalem Lutheran Church in Schuylkill Haven, on Wednesday, June 2 at 10:30 am with Rev. David Rowe officiating.

A visitation for family and friends will be held prior from 9:30 am until the time of the service at the Church.
