Meet Phillip and Gertrude

Gertrude and Philip met through her brother’s introduction and were married on December 1, 1951. They had 4 children and loved to travel with them when they were younger. Their family grew up on a farm and enjoyed milking cows, making their own butter, and growing their own garden.

Philip spent years as a high school Shop and Metal Teacher. He mentored at-risk children, kept up with them, and got to see them become successful. He also loved to carve and whittle things. Often, he would see objects on their family trips, come home and sketch them, and then carve them. He is also a World War II Veteran.

Gertrude was a stay-at-home mom and loved to bake. She made homemade, from scratch, bread and pies and made most of her daughter’s clothing. She loved to embroider, crochet, and still enjoys knitting. Gertrude completed business school and worked once the children were gone from home.

We are so glad that they have become part of our Sodalis family and look forward to seeing them share many more wonderful memories together.
