Mrs. Gertrude M. Suhr, widow of the late William A. Suhr, passed away Dec. 21 at her home on the Medina Road after a brief illness. Born in Cleveland, Oct. 26, 1868, she came to Norwalk at the age of five. She was married to William A. Suhr April 24, 1888, and her entire life was spent in the community in which she died.
Mrs. Suhr was very active in community affairs. For many years she was an officer in the Parent-Teacher Association of District No. 6 and secretary of the Worth While Farm Woman's Club for the past 34 consecutive years. She had made many friends and was loved by all who knew her.

One daughter, Mrs. Paul C. Stumpf, preceded her in death. She is also survived by 12 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and one great-great-grandchild. One grandchild, Charles F. Stumpf, whom she raised from a baby, now serving at Fort Benning, Ga., through the courtesy of the Red Cross, was able to be at her bedside at the time of death. A sister, Mrs. Maude Kean and a brother Frank E. Curtiss both of Buffalo, N. Y., also survive.
