Gertrude Pierre

Gertrude Pierre

Gertrude Pierre has achieved a great milestone in her life and graduated with her Bachelor of Social Work degree in 2011 at the age of 64.  Despite family being everything, she sacrificed time away from her husband, children & grandchildren. Since graduating she decided to help the people in the downtown Eastside. She shares the love, kindness and compassion in her work and  has these folks adopt her as their mother or grandmother.  From her hard work and dedication she has been recognized by the Circles of Understanding to be the respective elder for the residential school project “I Have to Tell My Story”  She does this with humbleness as an elder should but she always goes above and beyond her work. She deserves the acknowledgement to be chosen as the Remarkable Woman, you will surely agree with me upon meeting her.
