Gertie was a lifelong employee of 1st Security Bank. When she wasn’t working, she was spending time with her family.
Gertie’s favorite things to do were working in her yard, taking care of her many flowers, and running around. She loved to go no matter where or with who, hence her nickname “Gatabout Gertie”. She would never turn down a game of cards.
