Gerda grew up in Germany and immigrated to Southern Alberta with her family. Gerda attended SAIT and became a Nurse’s Aide. She worked in the Eckville Hospital until she retired.

Condolences

The Doreen Shippelt Family:

Our deepest condolences to the entire family on the loss of a wonderful woman! Gerda was always kind, and compassionate and a great neighbour to have! She will be missed by all who knew her and our thoughts and prayers are with you all!

Diane Thompson:

Ralph and I were privileged to have know Gerda and Sam for many years, first as fiends as our daughter Bev and son-in-law were neighbours and good friends with Dave and his girls. Sam and Gerda came with the package! She was always a ray of sunshine and had such a positive attitude. Mandy, Chelsie and Sam took over being her support and caregivers after both Sam and Dave had passed. So pleased that our family had the opportunity to know Gerda. A real lady!

Judy and Ernie Rodermond:

Our sympathy to all the family. Gerda was a very special person. She was a good friend and neighbour to our family.

Sandra Cech:

My sympathies to Gerda’s family.
In a word, Gerda was a lady. Kind and thoughtful, a wonderful sense of humour. And boy, she always looked fantastic in a jacket and skirt, even at 4H achievement days where she lent her support to everyone.
Your Gerda was a treasure and she will be missed.
