Today, November 3rd, is the birthday of Gertrude “Betty” Jeanette McCormack Waltz.
Betty was born on 3 Nov 1917 in Sparks, Nevada to Henry Peacock McCormack and Ethel Davis. Her actual first name was Gertrude which I believe was in honor of her grandmother, Gertrude Peacock McCormack. She would have been 97 years old if she lived. On 29 Jan 1940, she married Charles Wayne Waltz, the love of her life. She and Charles had 4 children and of those four children, three are still alive. Betty is survived by three grandsons, three granddaughters, four great-grandsons and four great-granddaughters.
Betty is my second cousin once removed.
Happy Birthday, cousin Betty!
