Gertrude Kramer or Cramer was baptized January 11, 1859, at Sankt Servinus Katholisch [Catholic Church] in Calle Meschede, Westphalia, Germany. Her parents were Joseph Cramer and Catharina Becker, and she had two sisters and one brother. She attended a boarding school in Paderborn, Germany, when she was 18 years old. In 1885 or 1888 she emigrated, and married John Pape in 1888. They had seven children. It appears that she lived almost all her life in the United States in Evanston, Illinois. She may have had family in Fowler, Indiana. She died of liver cancer.
