Maybe Gerda's wishes was the Diabetes Foundation.

You could consider donating the funds to that organization on behalf of Gerda and in her memory, if you can not find other living relatives in Germany or USA.
The money does not belong to the OP. It belongs to Gerda's estate.

OP could contact the funeral home and find out who arranged the cremation.

Not to be a stick in the mud,
but the small amount of money involved in this , under 1,000 , there is
no estate.
The OP can do what ever she likes with the money, and if she want to donate
to the Diabetes Foundation, well, I think she can.
I think that would be a very good cause to donate to in memory of her grandmas
best friend.
An estate is alot more than the small amount of money that was found.
The woman involved, died a Long time ago too.
The estate was settled a decade ago.

No, the money belongs to the estate. Your belief that the amount is inconsequential has no bearing on the situation. The estate can be reopened, if necessary.

However, one consideration would be to check with the probate court and find out if Gerda left a will. That might give the OP the names of the heirs.

Thank you for the message Kelly.
Your Grandmother Mary Mulcahy was the personal representative of Gerda's estate.
The attorney "for the personal representative" was Andrew R. Matteson.
His office may have a copy of Gerda's will in their 1998-99 files.
This may be the correct one so contact their office.
