Girtrue "Gertie" Swan
Birth: Apr. 4, 1901, USA
Death: Oct., 1980
Shelby County
Tennessee, USA

This is my Grandmother on my Mom's side. I remember visiting her lots of times. She was retired from MGM, she reviewed film footage before it being sent to the theaters. Boy could she cook - she loved to cook. I still have her recipe for Chess pie, mine never turned out, I still remember hers though.
She was buried in Forest Hill Midtown.
