Gertrude Rhode went peacefully to be with her Lord at her home.
Gertrude was a devoted Catholic who was a member Most Holy Redeemer Catholic Church. She retired after a lengthy career with the State of Florida. She loved hosting family holidays, and annually made her famous Christmas cookies. She made every visit with grandchildren and great grandchildren adventurous and uniquely memorable.
