If anyone in the Howie family is interested, the post of Gertrude's death in CA has been verified and a 2nd marriage was found. Her only child Raymond died in a traffic accident and is buried in Forest Lawn in Los Angeles. Unfortunately, her 2nd dh died while she was out of town. She went to work at a hospital until she died. I have an early photo of Gertrude taken in Alaska about the time she moved to Everett WA.
