Obituary for Gertrude Norvell

Gertrude (Gertie) Eva Maria Norvell, 85, of Golconda died Tuesday September 25, 2012 at 9:30 pm.
Gertie was born in Vienna Austria where she met her husband during WWII. Gertie was a devoted Mother of 7 who loved her family more than life itself. She enjoyed swimming, singing, dancing and making others happy. Gertie never met a stranger. She was a friend to all, and will be sadly missed by those whose lives she touched.
Gertie is survived by son Mike and his wife Deborah, son Johnny and his wife Beth, daughter Patricia and her husband John, daughter Susan, and daughter Rosa and her husband Dale. She adored her 18 grandchildren, 17 great-grandchildren, 4 great-great grandchildren and her niece Gerti from Austria.
Gertie was preceded in death by Bert, her loving husband of 60 years, and their son and daughter, Kenneth Wayne and Shirley Marie.
She attended the Gospel Mission Tabernacle in Golconda and found solace that the Lord would call her home to a much better place. She passed peacefully at home, saying good-bye to her loved ones here and hello to her loved ones waiting to greet her.

 The family will receive friends for a celebration of Gertie's life at New Liberty Church located near Eddyville, IL on Saturday October 6th, 2012 from 1:00 to 3:00.
