Matilda, better known as "Till" was the daughter of John and Katherine (Heimbach) Gast.
She married her first cousin David Gast, and was the mother of Ralph V. and Kathryn.
Till had very bad arthritis in her hands and didn't like for them to be seen by anyone.
Dave made her a large wooden fork & spoon set so that she would have an easier time eating.
