It is with great sadness that the family of Gertrude Blanche Bechtold (nee Sinclair) announces her passing at the age of 87, on Tuesday, September 8, 2020, after a brief illness.
Gert will be lovingly remembered by Walt, her husband of 66 years, and their children, Harold (Debbie), Harvey (Gloria), and Ralph. Gert will also be fondly remembered by her 6 grandchildren, Russell (Alicia), Sarah (Chad), Andrea (Darren), Brayden (Laura), Taylor (Thane), and Landon (Kara), by her sisters, Ellie and Marg, brother, Rae (Delores) and by 15 (soon to be 16) great grandchildren; she was predeceased by her parents, 5 siblings and great-grandson Takato.
Gert was born January 31, 1933, on a small farm outside of Moosomin, Saskatchewan one of 9 children born to Robert and Myrtle Sinclair.
Gert was a devoted and caring wife, mother, grandmother, and great grandmother, as well as a fantastic cook and we will never forget her amazing brownies, cookies, cake, and pies!
There will be no service, and the family requests in lieu of flowers donations be made to the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses located at 2114 Meredith Rd, Nanaimo, BC V9S 2N3 in honour of Gerts faith.
