In Memory of
Donna Gerlach
December 31, 1943 - October 7, 2021

Saturday, October 9th at 10 a.m. at Moreland Funeral Home

Donna Burdge Gerlach lost her recent battle against cancer. Though as a sports fan she would likely want it known she beat cancer three times prior. Donna joins her beloved husband, William in the great beyond. The memory of her laugh and skeptical looks will be remembered by her daughters, Ene-Kathryn Hartnagel and Cecilie Read; her sister, Mary Jane Berise; her grandsons, Brendan Hartnagel, William Read and Henry Read as well as her many loving cousins, nieces, nephews, family and a multitude of friends. Donna graduated from The Ohio State University and was one of the biggest OSU football fans ever. She was a loyal sister of Gamma Phi Beta. She proudly worked for the social security administration for many years. She was a loving and wise mother, wife and friend. In lieu of flowers, her family requests donations to The James - OSU Comprehensive Cancer Center.
