Her numerous trips to the homeland of her relatives in Boleraz and Bratislava, Slovakia brought her great joy. Her pilgrimage to Medjugorje, Bosnia/Herzegovina where she climbed the mountain of stones to visit the shrine of the Blessed Mother was a dream of her lifetime. She will be missed, but never forgotten. Her kindness and generous spirit will live on in each person's life she touched. She took great joy in and cherished each and every one of her children, but the delight on her face when she saw her nine grandchildren and two great-grandchildren (one on the way) was beyond words. Survivors include her husband of 63 years, Edward J. Gernat; her children, Sherry L. (James) Murphy, Milton, Del., Mark A. Gernat, Flowery Branch, Ga., Leslie A. Collier, Sewickley, Christopher J.
