Gilberte managed the Atlas Hotel for 20 plus years. Mom was a caring and giving woman with many friends who she enjoyed spending time with. In her quiet times, she'd spend many hours completing jigsaw, Suduko and crossword puzzles. She cherished her butterfly jigsaw puzzle she completed and proudly displayed it in her living room.
