Grace A. Cerra, 97, of Dunmore, passed away Wednesday morning surrounded by her family at Regional Hospital of Scranton. Her husband, the late Joseph A., passed away on July 27, 2021. The couple had been married for 74 years.

She was a kind, gentle and supportive woman who always put the needs of others before her own. She would always find the good in people. She adored her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and will be sadly missed by all who knew and loved her.
Grace's family wishes to thank Dr. Linda Franz and the nurses and staff at Regional Hospital of Scranton for all of their care and compassion.
