Gertie was a great co-mother-in-law. She and her family always welcomed me when I came to visit with Ann and Robert. I am sad that she is gone and I didn't have a chance to say goodbye.
My sincere condolences to the Palomo family.

Aunt Gertie made her loving spirit known by sending out cards for birthdays, holidays & get well wishes. My dad Izzy was surprised one day when his younger sister Gertie sent him a birthday card with $. When my dad & Aunt Gertie talked on the phone their conversations would always end with them sharing a prayer. Much love & blessings to a spiritual & loving Aunt. 💐
