Geraldine Dombrowski Obituary

Geraldine T. (Zawistowski) Dombrowski, 81, of Edinboro, passed away peacefully on Thursday, February 1, 2024, at UPMC Hamot surrounded by loved ones. 

Born in Erie on February 27, 1942, to the late Walter and Helen (Fotek) Zawistowski, Gerri graduated in 1960 from East High School and in 1964 from the Hamot Hospital School of Nursing. Over the years, she made significant contributions as a mental health registered nurse at Hamot and various facilities in Erie.

Gerri's compassionate nature extended beyond her profession. She found joy in the company of animals, especially her cherished dogs Duchess, Heidi, Lucy, and Spicey, as well as her cats Laundry and Mister Presley. She was a voracious reader who loved crossword puzzles and her favorite television programs. 

She was a devoted mother, grandmother and aunt, who always enjoyed the time she spent with family and friends. Gerri leaves behind a legacy of warmth and affection.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her beloved nephew, Stephen. She is survived by her sons David, Christopher (Maggie), and Jeffrey; her grandson Jeffrey Jr.; her brothers Ronald (Naomi) Zawistowski and Walter Jr. (Dolores) Zawistowski; her nieces Deborah, Jennifer, Laura, Rose, Renee, Rhonda, and Carla; and her nephews Ronald Jr., Brian, and Nicholas.

Gerri's message to all is to love God and make the most of each day. Care for all your brothers and sisters of the world. Be happy.

The family extends gratitude for the support and care provided by the Hamot MICU during her final moments.
