Gertrude (Gertie) Dembny, age 98, of Posen, died peacefully on Jan. 12, 2020 with her family at her side. A kind and generous soul, she was the fifth of 13 children born to Stanley and Rose (Rygwelski) Wozniak. She was a devoted wife to Edward (Eddie) Dembny who preceded her in death in 1993. She was a loving mother to Norman (deceased in 1968), Ann (deceased in 1997) and Rose. She was a gracious mother-in-law to Jerry Tolsdorf and Paul Gryniewicz and a proud grandmother of five grandchildren: Shannon (Scott) Heide, Jason (Shelly) Tolsdorf, Nicole (Mark) Bajis, Amy (Joe) DiCresce, and Kristy (Paul) Allison. She also had 10 great-grandchildren.
Additionally Gertie is survived by one sister, Blanche Myers, and two brothers, Stanley (Virginia) Wozniak and Raymond/Burke (Lori) Wozniak, all of Posen — and a host of loving in-laws, nieces and nephews, great-nieces and great-nephews, godchildren, friends and neighbors. She brought joy to many people during her life that lasted nearly a century.
