Condolence: Condolence From: Dan Peterson and family in Canada, Hong Kong and England
Condolence: Our families have known each other for nearly as long as I can remember, sharing enjoyable visits from childhood and over the years filled with congenial conversations, laughter, the warmth of good companionship and memorable occasions sprinkled with practical jokes and characterised by good humour all around. Gerda was always and unfailingly a leading light and a bright spot on these occasions. She just naturally made those around her feel happy in her presence, a rare gift. The world has lost a genuinely nice person and we will miss her. Our sincere condolences to Al and family, to Roy and family, and to all of Gerda’s extensive extended family as well.
Condolence: I had the honour of meeting Gerda through her involvement in the Canadian Federation of University Women (CFUW) Perth and District. What a lovely lady. And so very warm. I just saw Gerda two weeks ago, we hugged and planned to meet soon, for coffee and a chat. I had no idea that would be the final time I'd see Gerda, but typical Gerda, it was with a hug and a smile and I have that lovely memory to treasure.
Condolence: On behalf of Rotarians everywhere and in particular Members of the Rotary Club of Perth I want to offer my most sincere and heartfelt condolence to the entire Hearty family at the loss of Gerda.
The moto of Rotary is "service above self" and Gerda truly personified this in all aspects of her life and we have all as a community benefited from her efforts and can safely say she has made a lasting contribution. We shall all miss her immensely.
Sending you all, our sympathies during this difficult time.
Condolence: I was so sorry to hear of the loss of Gerda. She was a wonderful teacher, and a great coach- she was able to combine a sense of humour and fun with enough discipline to produce winning teams!She was a lovely lady and will be missed.
My deepest sympathy to all of Gerda's family.
Condolence: I was sorry to hear about your loss and I express my sincere sympathy to you and your family. May care and love of those around you provide comfort and peace to get you through the days ahead. My most sincere condolences.
Condolence: Al and family, was shocked to hear of the sudden loss of Gerda, she was such a lovely lady and will be missed by all who knew her. Know that you are all in my thoughts and prayers at this time. Muriel
