Passed away peacefully on March 26, 2014.
Gertrud was pre-deceased by her husband Joe, her sisters Doris, Ruth, Elsie and brother Robert.
She is survived and will be greatly missed by her sister Susi and brother Peter both of Switzerland and many nephews, nieces and friends in Nanaimo and Switzerland.
Gertrud was a very generous and caring person with a zest for life. She greatly enjoyed the outdoors where she hiked, mountain climbed, skied, fished, canoed and gardened. She loved camping in her motorhome and did so until she was in her 90’s. Her many travels took her throughout Canada, the US, Mexico, central America, Europe and the far east.
The family would like to thank Denise, Connie and all the staff of Trillium at Woodgrove Manor for their wonderful and caring support of Gertrud during the past 2 months.
No service by request. A Celebration of Life will take place at a later date.
