GERDA LUISE HERZBERG

Condolences & Memories (6 entries)

  • My condolences to Ralph, Pat and Liam. I myself never knew Gerda but found out through later working with Pat that I had purchased the house that Gerda and Fred had lived in on Harcourt in St James. I found out through the neighbours, that Gerda’s gardening skills were nothing I could ever compete with. Sounded like she was a meticulous person with great love for her family! - Posted by: Debbie Smithson (Friend) on: Jul 05, 2020

  • Tante Gerda was my mom, Ursula (Ushi) Grubert's Best Friend Forever. They were buddies for over 60 years. My mom keeps saying "I will never find a friend like Gerda". They shared so many of life's ups and downs and could always count on each other for support and honesty. Their love was unconditional, they were more like sisters. Gerda and Ushi would laugh about getting older and how so much has changed since they were younger. They would sometimes talk in German in public when they were critiquing how the "younger people now a days" were dressed. We will all miss Tante Gerda's wit and great sense of humor. She also was such a great sport with an adventurous spirit always willing to try anything. She was also such a wonderful story teller who loved to share her fishing tales. When we went to Mexico she would converse with the local fisherman by our hotel. Although sometimes it was a challenge close off a conversation with Tante Gerda on the phone, she loved to talk, I would do anything to hear her voice again. Till we meet again Tante Gerda. Thanks for the memories! - Posted by: Karin Durand (like a niece) on: Jul 05, 2020

  • So sorry to hear about “Mrs. Herzie’s” passing. Have many great memories of our time together as neighbours on Harcourt Street, at the cottages, and at other gatherings. She was a wonderful woman and will be dearly missed. Condolences from Lindsey, Amy, Susan and Rob Knodel - Posted by: Rob Knodel (Friend of family) on: Jul 04, 2020

  • Sorry for your loss, she had a great long life. - Posted by: Diane Gallant (Friend) on: Jul 04, 2020

  • Having Gerda in our life through the marriage of our son to Brenda has given us good memories. We always enjoyed our visits and talks with Gerda. A true pleasure in having Gerda in our life. We will miss you. - Posted by: Ken & Joan Ezinicki (Brenda & Mark, son & daughter-in-law) on: Jul 04, 2020
