My condolences to the Lerner family as they mourn the loss of their loved one. May God be a comfort and strength to you. He is the hearer of prayer. Psalms 65:2.
My father was Gerda's 1st cousin, but the family has not been in contact for many years. My condolences to her family and I would be pleased if they could contact me.
We, as women, owe her a great debt of gratitude. People of my generaton cannot appreciate how arcaic academia can be at ANY time in history. My best wishes and prayers to her family at this sad time. I can only hope to gain a minor fraction of the perseverence and "guts" she had. God bless her rest and the rest of those two ladies who helped encourage this great intellect.
My condolences to the family. May The Lord strength you as you shared chries memories of laughter.
An amazing woman who made broadly profound contributions in the advancement of women's rights. I first became familiar with her when she appeared as a guest speaker during my college years. I became a fan and followed her literary work since that time.
Thank you and R.I.P., Ms, Lerner...
The impact of Gerda Lerner's scholarship, insight, and determination will ripple through current and future generations. With thanks for a life well lived.
i never met her but shes right, i am the same way, cuz theres a way to be and a way not to be. and im always trying very diligently to not only be the way i know im supposed to be to others but i try to get others to be that way too. it might seem mean to not be like everyone else but GOD doesnt use a cookie cutter when He makes us!i lived thru jail fro a week to save someones job for him, in solitary , which was my hell, i want others to know that sometimes when you tell the truths no one wants to hear, you may have to pay that price as i did. but its all worth it in the end and i bet she knew it too.
She will live always through her books and works. Her book The Majority Finds Its Past changed my life! Blessings abound for Ms. Lerner.
My condolences to the Lerner family. Just from reading that little piece, makes me want to go buy her books because she sound like such an amazing women. I wish I could of had the chance to meet her. I know your family will miss her dearly. I pray that your family has comfort from Psalm 46:1. Your family will be in my prayers.
Wow! I just read about her after never hearing of her but What a Woman! I wrote down her book titles and will be reading them! RIP.
I had the pleasure and honor of knowing Gerda personally. The last time we saw each other was at Sarah Lawrence College at the 25th Anniversary Reunion of The Women's History Institute for Leaders of National Women's Organizations
I have had her book about the Grimke Sisters of South Carolina on my shelves for years, and honor the historian who gave us so many outstanding works. Rest in peace, after a long life well lived.
Gerda's passing is humanity's loss. Truly a great woman who taught so many, including those she never met.
Rest in Peace, Gerda

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

I offer my condolences. We all look forward to the day when there is no injustice. She was 92 years young, for God put time indefinite in our hearts.

A grand and beautiful lady, whose gifts she shared in this world freely. Her light burns brightly as she continues on her journey. Loving condolences and all of God's blessings to her family.
Gerda Lerner died almost one year to the day when my mother Winifred Milius Lubell died. They were friends during the 1950s and I and their children later attended the same school in NYC. I recognise her legacy in the same way as I do my mothers, in that both were keenly interested in the history and role of women in society. Long may their spirit and memory be kept alive!
Gerda touched many women's lives. She will be remembered. God is near to those broken at heart. My sincerest condolences to Gerda's family and close friends.
Rest in peace. God blesses you for doing His work in the world. Thank you.
Well done, Gerda Lerner. You were a great role model.
Her impact has and will be felt by many women who did not even know her name. I am glad I recognize her contribution and, in some small way, pay homage and respect to her.
Much sympathy on the loss of your loved one she will always be in our hearts.With the love of the Creator there is a remembnce.
My sincere condolences to the family. It is hard to lose someone close to us.
But please know that God does not forget our loved ones or us as we have to cope with this loss.
May the Learner family find comfort in the scriptural hope of everlasting life. (Johnn 17:3)
