Gertrude Khuner

Teacher, dancer, and matriarch, Gertrude died peacefully in her sleep in her Berkeley home at age 100 on December 9, 2013.

She leaves 4 children and their spouses: Margo Leslie, Kathy Khuner (Theda), Jonathan Khuner (Jillian), and Eliot Khuner (Anne); 8 grandchildren; and 2 great-grandchildren. She was born in New York, and was married for almost 50 years to Felix Khuner, who passed away in 1991.

An intuitive, intelligent, active woman of many interests, Gertrude was extremely involved in the community – teaching exercise and dance in Bay Area schools and senior centers for many decades. She will be dearly missed by students, friends, and family. She will continue to inspire all who met her.
