Gertrude Rita Walter, my grandmother, daughter of Jack and Gertrude Kearney, mother of three, grandmother of six, great-grandmother of 4, passed from this life to the next this evening at 7:25 in the Philadelphia suburbs.
Thank you for your prayers during this past week and please continue to pray for her immortal soul.
Eternal Rest grant unto her, O Lord, and may perpetual light shine upon her. May her soul and all the souls of the faithful departed, through the mercy of God, rest in peace. Amen.
UPDATE: Grandmom's funeral will be on Friday, July 7 at St. John of the Cross Church, Roslyn, PA.
Thanks so much to all of you who have read this and are praying for her soul and for our family. She was very ill and while we have all had time to mourn while she was still alive, it's difficult now that she's not here. God bless you all.
