Gertha had a love for the Bible as well as a love for Jehovah. She dedicated her life to Jehovah by baptism. She loved taking part in the field ministry and other aspects in Jehovah’s organization. Gertha especially looked forward to the resurrection hope in paradise earth where she will be able to see her mother, father, brother and baby sister again.
Gertha loved gardening and especially spending time with her children including her grandchildren and great grandchildren whom they called her “GG”. She enjoyed cooking and entertaining for her family and friends. She was very outspoken and had an opinion for everything. She would tell you like it is and love you all at the same time. She was such a beautiful person.
During the last two years of her life, she endured much suffering and pain. She spent most of her time receiving chemotherapy and maintenance medical support. She approached her illness with the same determination, as she astonished the Doctors with her persistent recoveries. She was able to enjoy the comforts of her home, children and her grandchildren. She will always be remembered and live on in our hearts and mind until we see her again.
