In memory of Gertrude Weigum Hinsz
Gertrude Weigum Hinsz “Gerty” was the daughter of Pete and Elsie Weigum. She was born, grew up, and lived on the family farm north of Zap, N.D. where she also attended school and church. As the eldest of five sisters, she was involved in raising children from an early age.
Gerty married Eugene R. Hinsz. They farmed north of Zap, ND until 1950, when they moved to Hazen, ND and later to Pick City, N.D. where Eugene worked on the Garrison Dam. Later, they moved to South St. Paul, MN where they lived for two years until moving to Dickinson, N.D. When her husband was transferred, they moved to O’Neill, NE and then later to Fargo, before returning to Dickinson, N.D. where she lived her last 37 years.
Gerty was the proud mother of five children. She devoted much time and energy raising her family. She also enjoyed spending time with her relatives and friends, traveling, and gardening. When she passed away at the age of 85, she had a large extended family that included three sons, two daughters, and their accompanying spouses. She was close to her four sisters, many nieces, nephews, and her in-laws. She derived extreme joy from her 12 grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. Gerty had a longstanding commitment to child development, healthy and happy living, and quality family life. It is in her honor and to her memory that these lectures are dedicated.
