A memorial for Gayl Bertagni, the co-owner of The Swiss Pub who died Friday night in an accident, is planned for Saturday at the pub. The public is invited.

A funeral Mass was held today at 11 a.m. at St. Stephen the Martyr Church in Renton. The following e-mail was forwarded to The News Tribune by family friend and fellow business owner Marty Campbell:

A celebration of Gayl Bertagni’s life will continue on Saturday, May

30th beginning at 3:00 pm at The Swiss Pub, 1904 South Jefferson,

Tacoma, WA 98402. The Swiss is expecting quite a bit of turnout, and

while they will be providing some food for the guests, would also like

to request that you please bring a dish that you would have enjoyed

sharing with Gayl.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Emergency Food Network and

support your local farmers.

The Swiss pub will be closed through Sunday, May 31st, reopening for

business on Monday, June 1st.
