She was born in Glen Falls, WV, on May 14, 1923, a daughter of the late Fred and Ada Tomblin Holt.

Gertrude was a graduate of Victory High School, Class of 1941, and retired in 2002 from Elder-Beerman as a sales clerk.

 

She was a 60-year member of the First Baptist Church of Nutter Fort where she had been the Bible School Director and head of the children’s department.  She taught Sunday School for over 50 years.   She was a member of the American Baptist Women’s Society, and the Lady Bugs CEOS.
