Gertrud Zimmerschied


My wonderful friend,

Gertrud passed away at the Central Okanagan Hospice

on February 25, 2013 at

the age of 79, after a long courageous battle with

cancer. Gertrud was

predeceased by her

husband, Werner in 2006

and survived by one son,

Peter(Lily), two grandchildren and one great-grandson, of Beaumont, AB. Gertrud was an accomplished stitcher and created many beautiful framed embroideries. She loved her home, her garden with the beautiful roses and shopping. I had the privilege of being her friend/caregiver prior to

her stay at Hospice and Gertrud leaves me with precious memories. I want to thank the incredible staff, nurses and volunteers for the wonderful care, compassion and love

that was given to Gertrud and (me) during her 9 month

stay in your beautiful facility. You truly became her family, you always made her feel special with your hugs and kind words. Allan and I will miss our friend and neighbor.

Rest In Peace My Friend.~ Kristina Chase
