GERTRUDE (GERT) NYMARK (nee MENTZEL) Passed away peacefully on Friday, February 15th, 2013 at Glynnwood Retirement Home at the age of 97. Loving Wife to Ed (deceased); devoted Mother to Marilyn and Sandy; caring Grandmother to Jason, Lisa (Sean), and Marc; doting Great-Grandmother to Connor and Karys. Predeceased by siblings Florence (Jack), Frankie (Grace), Herbie (Ruth), Eddie (Isabel) and Billy (Lillian). Gert enjoyed a wonderful life surrounded by much love and laughter. She was a very active member of her Church and enjoyed knitting and a game of bridge. She was the epitome of grace and elegance. Gert had a passion for music, good food and a good joke. She was a wonderfully kind and funny soul who brought joy and happiness to all those around her. Gert and her beautiful, generous spirit will sorely be missed, but comfort is in knowing that she is now reunited with her love Ed, welcomed by him with open arms we are certain. In lieu of flowers, a donation to a charity is greatly appreciated. A private family burial will be held at Mount Pleasant Cemetery on Tuesday, February 26th, 2013 followed by a Memorial Service to be held later in the Spring.
The Guest Book is expired.
