Gerda was a trained dental assistant.  She gave generously of everything she had to give.  Gerda gave her time, work, and most importantly, her love.  She was very genuine, loyal, honest, and trustworthy; a true blessing to those who knew her.  Gerda loved animals, nature, and being outdoors, especially hiking with her dogs.  She gave generously to many charities.  She was a child of God, a sister in Christ, and a beloved mother and best friend.  Gerda was a beautiful person inside and out.   

Surviving are her children, Claudia Helene Advincula of Bedford and Monika Gabriele Dombrowski of Mitchell; granddaughter, Andrea Talbot of Springville; great-granddaughter, Ava Brooke Talbot; and one surviving sister. 

Her parents; husband; and two brothers, preceded her in death.
