Gerarda Johanna Hardeveld, 1888 - 1986
My beautiful great-grandmother, possibly on her wedding day. She married Pieter de Goede on July 24th 1912 in Amsterdam. Together they had three children, Annie, Catharina (my grandmother) and Gerard. I would visit her once in a while, she was very old and fragile. She was always embroidering something. She would let her daughter take care of her, which she did quite sternly. Getting even perhaps, with the old days. My great-grandmother shared her lunch with me and smiled.
