    Gertie was my next door neighbor for years in Clinton. She was a very friendly and good neighbor and I have missed her since she went to a nursing home. I met her sister and brother in law and have missed them too. I can't make it to the funeral because of a a doctor's appointment. All my best. Prayers..

    Gertie was an amazing cook.   I will always remember her special recipes that filled the air and table with such wonderful flavors.     Her laughter was contagious.   She will be missed by everyone.
