    To the Gerzan family. I just saw the notice of Mrs. Gerzan’s passing. I’m so sorry for your loss. She was such a lovely, kind lady and a special part of the neighborhood. God Bless her. She will always be a part of my happy memories of growing up on Edson Ave. Your family is all in my thoughts and prayers.

    I was so sorry to see that Mrs. Gerzan has passed away. She was much loved by all of her Edson Ave. neighbors. I have many wonderful memories of her and Mr. Gerzan from my childhood. Betty mowing her lawn every week even into her 90’s. The drinking fountain on the garage where we would ride on our bikes to get a drink of water just because it was cool. The BIG candy bars on Halloween. The merry go round that was given to us for our backyard after the Gerzan kids were too old for it. (Now it still goes on in Komel’s back yard.) She always had a wave hello and a smile when we passed by and she was working in her front yard. She was a kind and beautiful lady and I’m sure she will be missed by her family and friends. RIP Betty Gerzan. Our thoughts and prayers are with her family. Edson Avenue has lossed one of it’s best.
