|It was here that
Gertrude had her beauty parlor in her home. Her father, Jacob
Bouwman, who lived with his wife until she died at 114
Quimby St., moved to be with Gertrude until he died in 1954.
When Gerrtrude couldn't maintain her home anymore, she moved to.the
Rest Haven Home where she died
in 1999. ..Her
nephew, LaVerne, remembers
when he visited in 1960 that she had trouble with her arm, making it difficult
to work in the beauty parlor. ...Gertrude
passed information by telephone or mail about her brother Herman
to his son Vern.
