Gertrude A. VanEps April 19 1938 – August 11 2023 – age 85
Leaves behind daughter, Diane VanEps, son, Kenneth (Julianne) VanEps,
and adopted daughter, Mary Umpierre. Also a brother, Stan (Cora) King,
niece, Stephanie (Chris) King, nephew, David, and a sister, Sue Dowe.
She was a loving mother with a very generous spirit. She worked her
job so that she could own her farm, where she was able to enjoy riding
her horse, raising goats and sheep, along with her chickens, all of
which were pampered. She even had a blind chicken that lived very well
and for a long time. She also took in stray cats and adopted dogs.
Revelations 21:3,4 – (3) With that I heard a loud voice from the
throne say: “Look! The tent of God is with mankind, and he will reside
with them, and they will be his people. And God himself will be with
them. (4) And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death
will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.
The former things have passed away.
Her Faith will carry her through to the New System, to be in Paradise.
Her laughter and guidance will be missed.
