My thoughts and prayers go out to the Hirschfeld and Noonan families. Gert and my father Bill were cousins, lifelong friends, and proud members of Medford High's Class of 42. They also shared a terrific sense of humor. I have fond memories of visits to the Hirschfeld's, particularly at the holidays, and Gert attending many of our family celebrations including my wedding in Chicago in 1999, along with Lucille Noonan. A warm, caring individual who took great interest in others. A positive light and role model for all of us. She will be deeply missed. Peace.

Gert led your family with her grace, beauty, stamina, style, and sense of humor. It's always difficult to grieve the loss of loved ones, but Gert has gone to a joyous place with God and is now free of pain and suffering. You have my sympathy. Remember all

I admired that because I too was brought up to always look your best and do your best. I think it keeps you young and

Mrs. Hirschfeld was a great lady and raised a great family. She welcomed many to her home on Bellevue Ave and always made them feel at home. God Bless her and the entire Hirschfeld family.

Very few people make such a difference as Aunt Gert. Our most sincere sympathies to all, but what a blessing she was to all.
