The Passing of a Generation

Millie and Son, July 1962.

Early morning July 30, 2010 Man's mother passed.

Mildred Louise Gehrke Stevens, April 23, 1923 - July 30, 2010

Millie was the last living child of Friedrich (Fritz/Fred) Johann Gehrke and his wife Lilly Anna Gerth Gehrke.  May her reunion with her husband, beloved parents, siblings and extended family be joyful.
