Gertie was so precious. Her love of music was contageous. We just loved her at Knutson Place, we miss her gentle smile. Her family was so good to her and she appreciated all of you. She was the best dressed lady at Knutson Place!
Bless her memory. She is home with her Lord.

It was truly a pleasure, as a nurse at st. johns, caring for Gertie and getting to know her truly loving family members. It was also VERY obvious Gertie was a remarkable woman and very dear to many hearts, which was evident by all the love that surrounded her on a daily basis!
My thoughts & prayers are with both of you girls Jeanine&Janice May you find comfort in eachother and in your MANY blessed memories of your "MOM"
Take Care and God Bless You!
