    This obituary is such a beautiful tribute to Aunt Gert. A wonderful woman, a devout Catholic and someone always looking out for “the other”. Sometimes it may sound trite, but in this case it is so true, “a life well lived”.

  • Shannon McNamara Verklan

    What a wonderful memorial for Aunt Gert! Thank you! Sending love and prayers to my mom and all of the Campau cousins.

  • Thomas, Lisa and Eddie Switek

    Aunt Gert, what a special and mysterious aunt she was to me. This tribute answered a lot of questions about her I never knew. My mom, Teresa Switek, always talked highly of her. I’m glad she could carry on the Campau name. Museums and libraries in the Saginaw area list this name as one of the first to settle here. Hope we can all get together after this pandemic and celebrate her life. God bless Aunt Gert.

    What a lovely tribute to such a kind and devoted woman. I will always remember Aunt Gert as a steady beacon, always there in support of others, especially her family. She was a great example of living God’s word.

    Aunt Gert was fabulous. She looked out for all of her nieces and nephews and other family members. It’s hard to believe she’s gone. She will be greatly missed by all who knew her.

  • Paula Monteleone-Ezell

    What a beautiful tribute to Aunt Gert. I remember her well from my visits to my Aunt Marge and Uncle Phil Militello’s home in Bay City. Her stories of her travels always fascinating. I remember when she brought my father Joseph Monteleone souvenirs from the Grand Monteleone Hotel in New Orleans. My father cherished those item that proudly displayed our last name for many years. She was so well versed in many subjects and inspired all the women in the family to be their best. My prayers go out to her and all the people she has inspired.
