Gertrude Burnedetta Young circa 1917 abt age 20.

Later at age 27, Gertie married Clarence Miller in 1924. Both were age 27 at their marriage. They had no children. However after Mary Wild Etue's death in Oct 1941 (age 33) and Peter Etue was discharged from St. Joseph's hospital, London, in April, 1942, Gertie & Clarence agreed to adopt and raise Mary's infant son; Peter Etue.

Gertie turned age 45 on 18 Apr 1942... Peter's arrival was a welcome addition to Gertie & Clarence's lives. Gertie's obituary indicates that she had poor health for about 10 years (43-53). In addition she had been hospitalized for a long period before her passing in Oct 1950. It is noted that Anthony Etue did not attend Gertrude's funeral.

Peter's memories are few between age -1 and 9 but I am confident that Gertie & Clarence did an excellent job of raising me with lots of love and kindness.

Peter was nine years old when Gertie passed away in Oct 1950 at age 53. Peter's father had remarried in Oct 1950 and he took Peter back to his home in 20 Dec 1950 in Goderich, Ontario.

Clarence at age 56 lost his wife in Oct 1950, his adopted son in Dec of 1950 and Clarence died in Nov 1961. Life can be cruel at times!

Peter will always be gratetul for the sacrifices Clarence & Gertie made for me by teaching me the basic values in life. I am a much better person for having Clarence & Gertie in my life as my adopted parents. PFE
