Gerth, Mary (nee: Zinke)
Peacefully at Elgin Manor in St. Thomas on Sunday, July 19, 2020, Mary Gerth in her 95th year. Beloved wife of the late John for 70 years. Loving mother of Josephina (the late Bill) Marshall, Henry (Brenda), the late Bill (Vicki), Anna (Jim) MacDonald and Mary-Linda (Craig) Jackson.

She is survived by four siblings in Holland. Mary always lived her life to the fullest and will also be remembered for her love of all games especially Rummikub and Bridge. The love she felt for her husband John, family and friends was truly reflected by the smile on her face. She leaves behind a legacy of love and the importance of family.
