Gertrude lived a very full life. She enjoyed life on the farm and was the most wonderful cook. After selling the farm Gertrude and Percy enjoyed travelling and winters in California. In her later years she lived in a seniors apartment. She loved to play cards, bingo, shuffling and visits with her good friend Pearl Blanchard. At age 99 Gertrude moved into Providence Place where she made friends with many of the residents and staff alike. Gertrude lived an extraordinarily healthy life which she attributed to having a very large family that visited often and kept her young at heart. The family thanks the staff at Providence Place for their care and compassion and a special thanks to Clinton and Nicole Shepherd who took Gertrude to so many doctor appointments, shopping and to the casino overthe years.
