Death notice of a quiet, anonymous and much loved woman.

When I was a VERY young girl, I met my cousin, Gertrude. She was 24. She and her parents had just arrived from Germany and came to live with my parents until they could get settled. I never saw a more beautiful creature! She was a tall, slender young woman with the most amazing face, blue eyes and mane of red hair!

She was a daughter who became a wife and mother. She had one child, a son, whom she adored. Life moved on for Gertrude. Her son moved to Alberta and her husband died. She sold the family home and moved into an apartment. At the age of 91, she moved into a retirement home.

Gertrude was a private person, keeping very much to herself. She outlived many family members and friends. She was not lonely, however. She kept up to date on world affairs and enjoyed giving me her opinions.

Gertrude died of COVID-19 late last night.  She did have health problems.

I just wanted people to know this quiet, private woman was an honest, hard-working soul who asked little of life. I loved her and will miss her. Erica
