Gertrude Theresa Vajdos Brezina was born on October 27, 1919. She married Eligius Michael Brezina on July 2, 1940. Michael’s untimely passing in 1953 left Gertie to raise, on her own, seven sons and one daughter: Robert, August, Cassian, Gregory, Nancy, Mark, Stephen, and Eligius. The children ranged in age from 12 years to 9 months and Gertie made the commitment to keep her family together and to raise the children that God had given her. For most of the years that her children were in school, Gertie was employed as cafeteria manager/dietitian for Louise ISD. Gertie will be long remembered by all who knew her for her unfailing faith in God, which gave her strength, courage and perseverance. She will also be remembered for her mile-high pies and upside down cinnamon rolls. She is irreplaceable and will be greatly missed, but she leaves a legacy of a life well lived and treasure-trove of cherished memories to her loved ones. “Her children rise up and call her blessed. Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Proverbs 31:28 In lieu of flowers donations may be sent to: Brezina Scholarship Louise Independent School District P.O.
