Gert grew up in the Dubuc District, SK with ten sisters and one brother. She met the love of her life, Allan, and was married in 1946. They raised two daughters, Val (Jeff Loeffler) and Cindy (James Kunz). She took pride in her family including her two grandchildren, Michelle Kunz and Lindsey Kunz-Whitton (Dave).

    Sorry to hear about Aunty Gert’s passing. Hamish and I saw her not that long ago while visiting in Calgary and had a good time chatting and looking at old photos. She was very proud of her grandchildren and delighted in telling us all about them. Very sad to hear of her passing. I envision her now in heaven with the rest of her sisters and brother and Uncle Al of course, having a gab session and laughing with each other. Our sincere condolences to you all. Love to you all from your cousins Sandy and Hamish Boswell.

    Gert was a gem and I will miss her so much. She loved her birds and when they escaped their cage she would ask me to catch them for her. When I would ask how they were she would say “they missed me”. Gert always had a smile and a kind word for everyone she was in contact with. Gert is in my prayers and hopefully dancing with her husband in heaven.
