Gertrude A. Garczynski, 89, of Sheboygan Falls, passed away on Thursday, December 8, 2022, at Pine Haven Christian Homes- Giddings Avenue.

Gertrude was born on September 19, 1933, in Sheboygan Falls, daughter of Harold and Veronica (Rommelfanger) Schroeder. She graduated from Sheboygan Falls High School in 1951 and went on to study to be a Certified Medical Assistant at Lakeshore Technical Institute. She worked with local pediatricians Dr. Simonson and Dr. Reinemann for over 10 years.

Gertrude was a member of St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Sheboygan Falls, where she had served as the treasurer for many years and was also a member of the Women’s Guild. She was a member of the Red Hat Society, and very active with local food pantries, especially Plymouth’s. An avid Brewers fan, Gertrude had enjoyed gardening and canning. She loved knitting and crocheting, and donated countless blankets to local shelters, newborn hats to local hospitals, and outfits and dolls to Community Bank for their display.

Gertrude is survived by her two sons, Alan (Jeanne) Garczynski of Sheboygan and Drew Garczynski of Plymouth; seven grandchildren and eleven great-grandchildren; brother Richard Schroeder; sisters-in-law Agnes Schroeder and Judy Schroeder.  She is further survived by nieces, nephews, other relatives, and friends.
