Condolence From: Sherry Nason Zimmerman
Condolence: To the Gerner family,

Just saw that Ella passed away and I'm saddened. Although, it was nearly 50 years ago, she was a very special woman in my life. I loved her and because she didn't have any girls, I was like a daughter to her then. I'm so happy we were able to connect last year and we had a wonderful conversation about the special relationship we had in the 60's and the love we shared. She was such a beautiful caring woman both inside and out! Her family will always have a special place in my heart.
My sympathies to Eric and the rest of her family.

Condolence: To my dear Aunt Ella who always took time to talk, share with me advice on raising three boys and most importantly always had a wonderful story and memory of my mom that would bring a smile to my face. Kind, caring and fiercely devoted to her family, I will miss her greatly! So sorry we can not get to the service but we are sending love and prayers!

Condolence: To the Ella Gerner family, we will miss Ella terribly. She was a true friend and a great bridge player. We will be unable to attend her funeral, but will be thinking of all of you on Saturday. We have a granddaughter, Ella, so I will remember her by the mere fact that they are two of my favorite people with Ella as a first name. ❤️❤️
