1 GERTRUDE MONTANEY 1941-1944 HANDWRITTEN MANUSCRIPT 5 YR DIARY OF A ROBUST YOUNG NEWLYWED ONLY TO SEE HER DIE IN A FOGGY WEST COAST CAR CRASH
NEAR TACOMA WASHINGTON WA 1941 Manuscript Good 
On offer is the original handwritten manuscript 5-year diary of Gertrude Montaney, wife of Louis P. Montaney. Gertrude writes a few 1941 entries but is much more dedicated in 1942 through the end of 1944. It appears Gertrude and Louis live near Tacoma and they mention Olympia, Portland, Forest Grove, Eugene. She lived near a Black Lake, and enjoyed fishing, often listing her "catch of the day." She was quite the baker, often making all manner of bread including dog bread, gumdrop cookies, cherry fudge, and more. They also raised and ate rabbits upon occasion. Some of her activities included: churning, sewing, reading, quilting, playing checkers, Red Cross work, crocheting afghan, making root beer and gardening. Here are a few quotes: Feb. 13, 1941 "Married to Louis P. Montaney Thursday at our home on Black Lake by...." May 13, 1942 "Nice day, sun not too bright. Finished ironing, pressed some dresses & trousers. Did regular work. Caught trout 14 in. long & bass 11 inches long and 3 perch...." And then as life often does suddenly Louis takes over the writing on Dec. 10, 1944 "I got….to go get her & in returning we were run into & wrecked. We took Gertie to hospital badly hurt. fog." Then the next few entries predictably are quite sad as he writes of her demise on the 13th. There is a front inside cover notation that she passed away, the date, and that he was taking over writing the diary, same last name. Included also with the diary are 7 b/w negatives which appear against the light to be of people at the lake. The diary ends January 4th 1945. The clasp is gone but the diary is in otherwise very good shape. VG.
