Gertrude Carter, 86, passed away in Venice, FL on April 8, 2022. She was born December 22, 1935, in East Pittsburgh, PA to Raymond Tubbs and Gertrude Tubbs Snyder. After Graduating from high school, Gertrude studied bookkeeping and accounting.

Gertrude enjoyed gardening her flowers inside and out around the house and deeply cared for her family and friends. Her positive attitude and devout faith were extremely contagious. Her love and kindness touched many over the years. She was a member of the Epiphany Cathedral Catholic Church.
