PRESS ROOM

Red Cross Volunteer Honored for 60 Years of Service!

Gertrude Ehlers was recently honored as a 60 year volunteer with the American Red Cross. Gertrude joined the Red Cross as a nurse’s aide at Mercy Hospital during World War II, when there was a nursing shortage. Gertrude was employed full-time but spent her evenings as a volunteer at Mercy. Gertrude also served as a Red Cross Water Safety Instructor for 30 years, volunteered at St. Luke’s Hopsital, and at Genesis East Hospital, delivering flowers, snacks, and mail to patients.
“Gertrude is a long-time valued and dedicated Red Cross volunteer,” says Eileen Ryan, Director of Volunteer Services. “I honestly don’t know what I would do without her. The American Red Cross is very fortunate to have a volunteer like Gertrude.”
