Mechanicsburg, Pennsylvania

Georgetta “GG” Mae (Tuckey) Crone, age 87, of Mechanicsburg, PA, died on Friday, May 31, 2024. Georgetta was born on Thursday, October 8, 1936, in Newberry Township to the late George Tuckey and Martha (Whisler) Tuckey. In addition to her parents, Georgetta was preceded in death by her three siblings, Jim Tuckey, Denver Tuckey, and Martha Perry, and her grandson, Michael Sponsler.

Georgetta is survived by her four children: Debra Sponsler and her husband Dennis, of Mechanicsburg, PA; Ralph “Chuck” Crone and his significant other Pam Still, of Mt. Holly Springs, PA; Carl Crone and his wife Traci, of Carlisle, PA; and Jay Crone and his significant other Lori Ellison, of Mechanicsburg, PA. She is also survived by her eight grandchildren: Jessica Sponsler and her husband Arjun Sanyal, of Lancaster, PA; Jennifer Burns and her husband Michael, of Baltimore, MD; April Cohen Crone and her wife Melissa, of York, PA; Carmen Crone, of Carlisle, PA; Tenessa Miller and her husband John, of Carlisle, PA; Tasha Mumma and her husband Steven, of Shermans Dale, PA; Brandon Crone, of Virginia Beach, VA; and Dylan Crone, of Mechanicsburg, PA.

Georgetta found joy in life’s simple pleasures. She played the piano beautifully and sang in her church choir, her voice bringing warmth to all who heard it. She loved watching her favorite movie, The Sound of Music, and eagerly awaited new episodes of HGTV’s Farmhouse Fixer.

However, it was sewing that truly captured Georgetta’s heart. Her talent with a needle and thread was unmatched, from crafting beautiful bridesmaid dresses to altering garments for friends and family, and repairing beloved, worn-out stuffed animals. She also made quilts for veterans and knitted lap blankets for local hospitals. Her sewing skills were not just a hobby but a way of expressing her love and care for those around her. Georgetta’s handiwork touched the lives of many, leaving behind a legacy of creativity and compassion. She will be deeply missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
