Gertrude was a kind, hardworking, lady who loved the Lord and her family dearly. She was generally a quiet, reserved individual but had a unique ability to create laughter among those around her. Although a woman of few words, she was full of wisdom. Gertrude was very independent, strong willed and had a sharp mind. She loved her church and was very intentional about sharing her faith with everyone she met, especially her family. Gertrude was known for her forgiving heart and humble nature. She was the cornerstone of the family and will forever be missed.
