  • Gertrude L. Smith, age 84, of East North Street, passed away peacefully on Wednesday morning, September 26, 2012, in Folts Homes, Herkimer. She had the comfort of her loving family at her side.
    She was born on December 3, 1927, in Herkimer, daughter of the late Fred Gilbert. A lifelong area resident, she was a graduate of Herkimer High School. Gertrude was the widow of Albert Smith, Sr., who preceded her in death in 1982. Mrs. Smith had resided in Ilion since 1985, coming from Herkimer.
    Gertrude was a devoted wife, mother and homemaker. She was happiest when she was surrounded by her many friends and family, especially her many grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Outside of her home, she found much relaxation in walking. Not a day would go by that she wasn't walking to either a store or to visit friends. She will be greatly missed.
    Surviving are four sons, Albert Smith, Jr., and his wife, Robin, of AZ, Thomas Smith and his wife, Tina, of Corning, Alan Smith, of Herkimer, and Earl Smith, of Colton; five daughters, Diane Youker and her husband, Russell, of Dolgeville, Kathy Dunn and her husband, Patrick, of Ilion, Robin Singer and her husband, Michael, of Ilion, and Susan Davis, of Little Falls; three sisters, including Florence Sennett of AZ; twenty-six grandchildren; twenty-six great-grandchildren; and several nieces, nephews and cousins. Besides her parents and husband, Albert, Sr., she was preceded in death by two sons, Leo and Fred Smith; a brother, Fred Gilbert; and cherished granddaughter, Kimberly Ann Dunn.
    Funeral service will be on Tuesday at 2:00 p.m. in Fenner Funeral Home, Inc., 115 Court Street, Herkimer. The Reverend Cathy Lee, Chaplain of Folts Homes, will officiate. Interment will follow in Oak Hill Cemetery. The family will be present in the funeral home to receive relatives and friends on Monday from 4:00 until 7:00 PM.
