UNDERWOOD Gertie Landsiedel, 102, Underwood, formerly of Turtle Lake, passed away peacefully on Dec. 13, 2011, at Prairieview Nursing Home, Underwood. Services will be held at 10:30 a.m. Monday, Dec. 19, at Turtle Lake United Methodist Church with the Rev. Peder Anderson officiating. Interment will be in Turtle Lake Cemetery.

Gertie was born Oct. 9, 1909, near Underwood, one of 10 children born to Andreas and Magdalena (Schlechter) Sayler. She grew up on her parents' farm southwest of Underwood and attended rural school. On Oct. 18, 1928, she married Edward Landsiedel of Garrison. The couple farmed in the Underwood/Turtle Lake area and raised their nine children there. In the spring of 1959, Edward died suddenly of a cerebral hemorrhage. Gertie continued to live on the farm until 1965, when she moved to Turtle Lake. She was employed as a dietary aide at the Turtle Lake Memorial Hospital. She retired at the age of 65 and focused her energy on spending time with her family and friends.

Gertie was a member of the Turtle Lake United Methodist Church and women's ministry. Her hobbies included gardening, embroidery and crocheting. She created many embroidered and crocheted keepsakes for her family. In 2003, she sold her house and moved to the Sheridan Home in McClusky. She later moved to the Prairieview Nursing Home, where she had made her home since 2006. Gertie always looked forward to Sayler family reunions in Underwood. She and her cousin, Emma Landenberger (who passed away last week), were the last living members of their generation of the extended Sayler family.

Gertie is survived by four sons and two daughters, Wayne Landsiedel, Underwood, Glen (Joan) Landsiedel, Parshall, Leora Singer and Bob (Jean) Landsiedel, Washburn, Larry (Alma) Landsiedel, Baldwin, and Betty (Claude) Linder, Nashua, Minn.; four daughters-in-law, Sharon, Ardella and Lenora Landsiedel and Kathy Westrum; many grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren; and several nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Edward; three sons, Virgil, Cleo and Darrel; one grandson, Steven Landsiedel; one son-in-law, Willie Singer; six brothers; and three sisters.
