Gertrude Marjorie, daughter of Edward W. and Marie (Wenzel) Hamann, was born May 7, 1923, near Manilla, Iowa. She attended country school at Greeley Township #1 in Shelby County.

In 1970 they stopped farming and Gertrude worked at Trinity Lutheran Church for a year. In 1975 they moved into Manilla.
