Gertrude Helwagen Webbe
Birth: Jan. 31, 1902
Pickaway County
Ohio, USA
Death: Aug. 13, 1979
Pickaway County
Ohio, USA

Gertrude was the daughter of Elmer and Marietta (Adkins) Helwagen. She was born at Williamsport, Ohio. I am unsure when the family relocated to Circleville, but by 1923 she was living in Circleville next door to the Webbe Family on E. Mound Street.

It was there that she met Charles Franklin Webbe, a man several years her senior. He was the well dressed man about town and she was the girl next door. They were married at Trinity Lutheran Church in early 1923. They welcomed children in late 1923 and in 1924.

While much of her time was spent as a housewife, she did work for a time during the Great Depression at the local telephone company to provide additional support to the family. During her adult life she was very active in the local community, serving as President of several local women's organizations (such as the Daughter's of Union Veterans and the Von Bora Society).

Later in life she suffered a stroke that left her confined to a wheelchair. In the mid to late 1970s she developed breast cancer and despite surgery, passed away from this disease.
