Riley Jo Ferrera, 2, of Hanover Township, died Monday, December 10, 2018, in Geisinger South Wilkes-Barre, as the result of a tragic two alarm fire, at her home.
Born in Wilkes-Barre, she was the daughter of Michael S. Ferrera Jr., and the late Julia Oschal Crossley, who was also a victim of the Monday morning fire. Riley was a very happy little girl, who loved to play. Her big brown eyes and contagious smile would brighten anyone's day. Her laugh was infectious and she will always be her Daddy's Little Angel.
