Birth: 1880
Death: 1890
Hennepin County
Minnesota, USA

Sister of billionaire industrialist and philanthropist J. Paul Getty. Gertrude died from Typhoid fever two years before Getty's birth.

"The parents never fully recovered and were unprepared for J. Paul's arrival. There was no parental affection. There were no birthday parties, no Christmas trees. George and Sarah refused to let him play with other children lest he contract a contagious disease. It was a lonely and chilly childhood." ~ Titans of Fortune
