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.
