"For you meet him with the blessings of goodness; You set a crown of pure gold upon his head.
He asked life from You, and You gave it to him- Length of days forever and ever. His glory is
great in Your salvation; Honor and majesty You have put on His head. Psalm 21:3-5

younger daughter is Marcelle Bastworos married to Ossama Anwar in Dubai, UAE and their

Ms. Gerges became a widow when she was only 45 years old. She raised her daughters on her
own according to God's way. She was thankful all the time, even towards the end of her life,
enduring a very difficult pain.
Originally from Cairo/Egypt, Ms. Gerges moved to the USA in 2009 to join her daughter. Having
multiple health complications.The Lord had helped her to overcome a major health setback 10
years ago, During this time, she helped her daughters raise their children.

Galatians 5:22. Loving the Lord and His Church, she was an active member of Saint Mary
Coptic Orthodox church of Cooksville, MD. She was a faithful servant in the Holy Family ministry
and everyone saw how faithful and dedicated she was in serving our Lord Jesus Christ. She
cared for the poor and needy around her, especially the poor in Egypt. Through a local church in
