I was privileged to know Gertrude as a fellow member of the Park Forest Area League of Women Voters, where she attained Life Member status for her 50 + years of membership. She was an active and involved member, and graciously hosted the League's Summer Breakfast series of informative programs for many years in her lovely home and garden in Park Forest. She will be missed by us all. With deepest sympathy to her family,
Mary Lubertozzi
