Bertha GAETZ

GAETZ, Bertha
October 14, 1913 - February 23, 2013
Bertha "Bert", a lady loved by all, went to be with her Lord and Savior on February 23, 2013 in Calgary, AB at the age of 99 years. Bertha was born in Hanna, AB on October 14, 1913. She was just eight months shy of her 100th birthday. What a great life she had; she never lost her wonderful smile. Bertha is survived by many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her five brothers and three sisters. In keeping with Bert's wishes, no Funeral Services will be held. A Graveside Service will be held at Queen's Park Cemetery on Friday, March 1, 2013 at 2:00 p.m. Condolences may be forwarded through If friends so desire, memorial tributes can be made directly to the Calgary Dream Center at 4510 Macleod Trail S.W. Calgary, AB T2G 0A4 (Telephone 403-243-5598). We wish to thank the staff of Brentwood Care Center for all their kindness and compassion shown to Bert as well as her two special care givers Marlene and Joan. Time spent with Bert will be remembered with smiles and laughter. In living memory of Bertha Gaetz, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park.
