Obituary Gertrudes (Zimmerly) Torres, wife of Herminio Torres

I found the obituary for Gertrudes (Zimmerly) Torres, the wife of Herminio Torres,  in the 7 September 1920 issue of the Albuquerque Morning Journal. The newspaper erroneously lists her as Gertrudes Torres Zimmerly, which would indicate that her maiden name would have been Torres, rather than Zimmerly. Gertrudes was the daughter of Samuel Zimmerly and Maria Pabla Torres, and a sister of my great-grandfather Estevan Zimmerly.

ZIMMERLY - Mrs. Gertrudes Torres Zimmerly, 48 years old, died yesterday at her home 313 West Hazeldine avenue. She is survived by a son, two daughters and her husband. Funeral arrangements will be made today. The body was taken to Crollott's funeral parlors.
