Gertrude was the best mom, grandmother and mother-in-law anyone could ever hope for. Always with open loving arms, positive words and always encouraging us to do our best. She was a wonderful sister and friend to all of her brothers and sisters and an aunt who knew everyone and cared and loved all of them. She especially loved being thoroughly involved with all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She loved to sing with her sisters, dance with her senior group and beat us all when she was bowling. She was a very active and vibrant soul, a great friend and she will be dearly missed and always loved and remembered for her openness, honesty and quick and charming wit.
