The sweetest, nicest, kindest neighbor anyone could have. Always very friendly and with a smile. She will be missed by all, including by my son and nephew who loved walking to the "min-mill" house (windmill!).
To her family, our condolences to you during this time. May you find peace in your faith and comfort from all the memories you share.

Several years ago I was a notary working in a San Leandro real estate office when I met Gisela and her best friend Ingrid..Conversations were always peppered with giggles and laughter, gradually a friendship developed, and I was invited to have cookies and coffee in their homes..

Anyway, Gisela was always unruffled by almost anything. Smile Smile Smile - she always had this wonderful welcoming smile. And food- she always had delicious food and was often cooking;...
