Sarah Anne (Gehringer) Vallimont, age 78, of Erie, passed away on Tuesday, October 27, 2020.  She was born in Erie, a daughter of the late Howard and Frances (Rieger) Gehringer.

Sarah was a graduate of Saint Benedict Academy and Villa Maria College School of Nursing.  She went to work as a nurse at Hamot Hospital and Great Lakes Home Health Care. 

Sarah was a longtime member of Saint Boniface Church in Erie, PA and an active member more recently at St. Gregory Thaumaturgus (North East, PA).  She served on the Bereavement Committee at both parishes as well as a member of the Sodality of Mary.

Family was always Sarah’s first priority and she enjoyed cooking family meals, baking, gardening and bird watching.  Sarah was loved by many extended family and friends whom she cherished spending time with.  One quote that she wanted to tell everyone was, “I came to this world, stayed a little while, and then I went home!”
