Gisela Maier was born January 20, 1931 to Jacob and Elsa Maier in Geislingen, Germany. She married Albert Goetz on March 26, 1955 in a duel ceremony with her sister Marianne on the occasion of their parent’s 25th wedding anniversary. Together the young couple immigrated to Canada in July 1958 with their 2 young daughters to find a better life. Two years later Michael was born to complete the family. Gisela was a devoted wife and loving mother. After raising her family, she enjoyed being Oma to her grandchildren and always delighted being with them.
