Words cannot express how sorry we were to hear of Gert’s passing. She was a kind, caring, loving lady who brought a lot to the lives of the people who knew her. She had a wonderful sense of humor and always made us smile when we saw her. We were privileged to have her babysit Kendra when she was a small child and she treated her like her own granddaughter and for that we will always be grateful. She will be missed by many and never forgotten. Rest in peace Gert. You will always hold a special place in our hearts.

John, Marilyn & Kendra

Rip Aunt Gert you will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the rest of the family
