Mrs. Gertrude K. Roos Summoned By Death

Mrs. Gertrude Kettenbach Roos, 63, Lewiston pioneer, died at 11:25 last night at her home, 1026 Ninth avenue, where she resided with her brother-in-law and sister, Dr. and Mrs. S. Salsberg.

A native of Indianapolis, Ind., the daughter of the late Henry C. Kettenbach and Ada Kettenbach, Mrs. Roos came to Lewiston when she was a little more than three years old. She received her elementary and high school education here and was among the earliest graduates of the Lewiston normal. She was one of the organizers of the Tsceminicum club and a life-long member of the Episcopal church and sang in its choir from childhood until about one year ago. For 16 years she had her home in Boise.

Survivors include her sister, Mrs. S. Salsberg, her uncle, Frank W. Kettenbach, Calgary, three first cousins, Mrs. Mortimer Van Ostrand, Alfred Kettenbach, both residents of Calgary, and Mrs. Grace Kettenbach Pfafflin, Indianapolis; and three second cousins, Mrs. E. V. Lorenz, Mrs. S. C. Skillern, of Lewiston, and Mrs. Dryden Eberhart, Wilmette, Ill.

The body is at the Vassar-Rawls funeral home. Burial arrangements are pending.
