Gertrude Ann Bruno

Gertrude Ann Bruno, 78, Home, PA, gracefully entered the presence of the Lord, following a courageous struggle with renal failure at IRMC on Sunday, Nov 2, 2014, All Souls’ Day.

Born in 1936, in Ernest, PA, to John and Anna (Zinzella) Liscinsky, Gert was a 1954 graduate of Indiana High School and Business College. A devote Roman Catholic, she had been a member of churches in Ernest, Sagamore, and Yatesboro. Gert strongly believed in the power of prayer and relied on her unwavering faith commitment.

Family was Gert’s priority. Married to Rudolph Bruno on July 6, 1957, at the Assumption Church in Ernest, they were blessed with four children: James (Sheree) Bruno, Marianne Cubeta and Christina Bruno. Their youngest daughter, Rebecca, died as an infant in 1969. A loving and influential grandmother to Sara (Justin) Aion, Daniel (Brandy) Bruno, PJ (Maura) Cubeta, Erin (Brian) Davis and Gregory (Kate) Davis, Jr, she was additionally able to enjoy her great-grandchildren: Harper, Brynn, Bailee, Lena, Bowen and Morrigan. Rudy and Gert were destined to marry as he was born on the feast day of Saint Gertrude the Great.

Gert enjoyed a 30 year career at Marion Center Schools as a secretary and was honored in 2014 by PSAR for her selfless service and dedication. During her years at Marion Center, she was deeply involved in supporting extracurricular activities and strongly advocated for countless students.

Always the center of family gatherings, Gert’s home was filled with laughter, delicious meals and lots of love.

Preceding her in death were her parents, daughter, siblings (Kathryn Pruner, Adam and John Liscinsky) and son-in-law, Pete Cubeta, as well as many extended family members.

Visitation will be at Bowser-Minich Funeral Home in Indiana, PA on Tuesday, November 4th from 1 to 4 and 6-8 P.M. and again at 10 A.M. on Wednesday. A Catholic Mass of Christian Burial will be celebrated by Rev. Fr. Tim Kruthaupt at the Church of the Resurrection, Ernest site, at 11 A.M. on Wednesday, November 5th, with interment to immediately follow at St. Bernard Cemetery, Indiana, PA.

Finally at peace, Gert would want to thank the staff of IRMC, the Dialysis Center, Citizens’ Ambulance, Beacon Ridge, Scenery Hill and VNA, as well as the many friends and family members who showed compassion to her during her lengthy illness. She is now with those whom she has missed and for whom she has prayed.
