From Colfax Garden Club May 24, 2017
Dear Golden Foothills members,
It is with a sad heart that  I am telling you that our dear friend Gertrude Paul passed away Tuesday  May 23.  Gertrude joined the Colfax Garden club in 1977. Until the last 2 or 3 years she has been active at our local level, the District level and State level. She was President of our club in 1977.  She started the Arbor Day Essay contest with the 5th graders,  Every year the winners would plant a tree in downtown Colfax, or the school, or the park.
Her daughter Carlotta Wixon has  been active in the Chicago Park Garden Club and at District and State level.
Carlotta tells me that a service will be held for Gertrude on June 2, at 11am at the Faith Lutheran Church, 1115 Combie Road in Meadow Vista.. This is behind the Shopping Center in Meadow Vista.
Best wishes to all of you.
Jewell DeLapp, President
