Gertrude W. Wilson
(d. 02 Sept 2014)

Dear Friends and Schoolmates,   
  There is more sad if somewhat belated news today.  Gertrude Wilson,
mother of    Lowell Philbeck ('59) of VA, passed away in Newport News on Tuesday, September 02, 2014.  She was for many years the proprietor of the Little Perm Beauty Shop.


    From Jean Poole Burton ('64) of RI - 09/07/14, 6:16 PM - "Death of Gertrude Wilson":

Mother of    Lowell Philbeck.  It was in Friday's Daily Press.  She was a very special friend to our family.

   Thank you so much, Jean. When I first read this obituary, I thought that you yourself must certainly have known Mrs. Wilson, but I missed the NNHS connection. You have my deepest sympathies on the loss of your dear friend.


From the Daily Press - 09/05/14:

                   Gertrude W. "GG" Wilson

Oh, How I Love Jesus

Words by Frederick Whitfield; Traditional American Melody
 

There is a name I love to hear,
I love to sing its worth;
It sounds like music in my ear,
The sweetest name on earth.

chorus:
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Oh, how I love Jesus,
Because He first loved me!

It tells me of a Saviour's love,
Who died to set me free;
It tells me of His precious blood,
The sinner's perfect plea.
(chorus)

It tells me what my Father hath,
In store for every day,
And tho' I tread a darksome path,
Yields sunshine all the way.
(chorus)

It tells of One whose loving heart
Can feel my deepest woe,
Who in each sorrow bears a part,
That none can bear below.
(chorus)
