Friederike M. “Ricke” Bond, 68, of Mechanicsburg and formerly of New Cumberland, passed away on Friday, March 18, 2022 in UPMC Pinnacle West Shore Hospital, Hampden Twp. with her family at her side.
She was a retired administrative assistant with Kinney Shoe Corporation, Shiremanstown. Ricke was a tireless volunteer with St. Theresa School for many years while her children attended and she was a devoted and caring animal lover. But more than anything, she loved her family, and “Nonna” loved nothing more than spending time with her grandson, Miles.
Ricke was born in Harrisburg, the daughter of the late George A. and Friederike M. (Spessa) Perry. She was a graduate of Central Dauphin East High School, Class of 1971, and Kaplan College.
She is survived by her children, Vanessa L. Holt of Chantilly, VA and Tyler A. Bond of Willow Street; siblings, Christine M. Perry-Pannebaker of Lancaster, Susan Hopkins of Harrisburg and Frank J. Perry of Harrisburg; a grandson Miles R. Holt of Chantilly, VA; and several nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at 10:30 am on Saturday, April 2, 2022 in Parthemore Funeral Home & Cremation Services, New Cumberland with the Rev. Kyle Sahd officiating. Visitation with the family will be one hour prior to service time. Burial will be in Resurrection Cemetery, West Hanover Twp., Harrisburg.
