Gertrude Strizver, age 98, died peacefully at the Jewish Home in Fairfield after a long, happy life. She was the beloved wife of the late Leonard Strizver who passed in 1982. Gertie was born in Brooklyn, NY to Isidore and Anna (Trepper) Zehngut on November 4, 1920. She was always very upbeat, had a great sense of humor, and she adored her family, especially cooking for them. She was adored by everyone who knew her, and will be dearly missed.
