Dear Batist Family, Gertie was ia wonderful woman who cared about people, important causes and rolled up her sleeves to do the “heavy lifting” when necessary. She did so with a smile and grace. She always greeted me warmly, wherever we met, often in the company of your father especially in later years, when she was a devoted caregiver. We worked together on behalf of Soviet Jewry. We met at the McGill Jewish Studies Graduations, at lectures and many other events. Gertie was one of those people that one was happy to know and have in one’s life. May her memory be a blessing. Warmly, Anna
