The Baha'is of the Fox Valley regretfully were unable to attend Gert's funeral. She was very precious to us. Gert and Sue had many devotional prayer meetings at her house as well as some Holy Day celebrations. Because we were unable to attend, we will be holding a memorial service for Gert this Sunday. It has been nice to read about her entire life. She was quite a lady and it makes it even more special to have known her.

Gert's obit struck a familiar note with me as I am part of her extended family. My mother, Esther Thoma Schmidt, was a niece of Aunt Ida Knoke. I remember fondly many trips to Appleton to visit her and many trips to hear Melvin sing. I remember hearing the names of Leland, Gert, Gary, and Curt. She certainly sounds like someone I would have enjoyed knowing better! It sounds like she leaves quite a legacy. I am sure she will be greatly missed. God's blessings to your family.

I want to thank Gertrude's son and his wife for all the kindnesses and thoughtfulness to me when I lived at Grand Horizons with Gertrude. I always knew your mother was a classy lady. She always wanted to talk and continually wore a smile.
