Gertrude Netter Kauders – Nee August 14, 1895 in Philadelphia –  My Mother’s Mother

My grandmother, Gertrude Netter Kauders, was born in Philadelphia, Pa. on this day 120 years ago. This is also the anniversary of V-J day — Aug. 14, 1945. That would have been my grandmother’s 50th birthday. I have a ring that she was given on that day, with her initials and the date engraved inside. My grandmother was very good to me and loved me a lot, which made what was, in many ways, a difficult and harsh childhood bearable. She held me on her lap and wrote stories for me, which I still have in the black-and-white, cardboard bound school composition book in which she wrote them. In the front of the book, she wrote, “Dedicated to my darling granddaughter, Terese Loeb, from her Nana. September 1951.” Happy Birthday, Nana. I still think of you and I still love you.

That was the same year that I was born on January 29.  I was 8 months old – nee at Abington Hospital in Montgomery County.
