Our dear wife, mother and grandmother Gisela Neitzert passed away peacefully surrounded by family on October 17, 2019, at the Margaret Bahen hospice after bravely battling cancer. Gisela is survived by her beloved husband Fred Neitzert. She was a loving mother to Frank, Monica, Robert (deceased), Christina, and Tanya. She cherished and nurtured her grandchildren Daniel, Ehren, Oliver, Charlotte, Rachel, Mia, Nicholas and Chloé. Her family, as well as her many friends, colleagues and clients will deeply miss her.
Gisela was a social worker whose compassion and support touched many. With incredible drive and work ethic, Gisela had tireless energy for work, church volunteering, outdoor activities, camping, spending time at her serene cottage, taking special care of her son Robert, and having fun with and supporting her husband, children and grandchildren.
She will be deeply missed for her determined spirit, her love of nature, canoeing, music and symphony performances, church, and her profound love for her family, her passion for life, and deep empathy.
A memorial service will be held on Saturday, November 9, 2019 at 11am at the Christ the King Lutheran Church, 149 Bay Thorn Dr, Thornhill, ON L3T 3V2
