Gertrude Anna Schneider Patrolia passed away on Sunday, November 25, 2012 at the age of 86. She was the loving wife of 64 years to Henry J. Patrolia.

Gertrude was well loved and will be forever remembered as a loving and loyal wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend who took care of so many people out of the kindness of her heart. While caring for those around her she somehow found time to devote to her beloved plants and flowers that she kept so beautiful. She made this world a better place.
