      Argus Leader, Sioux Falls, South Dakota, Monday, Feb. 6, 1995:
      “Gertrude Lowell dies at 79; warmed charities with quilts:
      By Mary Van Beusekom, Argus Leader Staff:
      Gertrude Lowell loved to make quilts, but she enjoyed giving them away even more.
      Her son-in-law, Larry Feay of Sioux Falls, said Lowell’s home was always filled with fabric ready to be cut and quilted into beautiful blankets. She would no sooner finish one than she would give it to the Children’s Inn, churches or other charities.
      Lowell and her husband, Charles, ran the West Sioux Roller Rink from 1941 until their retirements in 1987.
      “When she wasn’t at the roller rink, she was home quilting,” Feay said.
      She also spent much of her spare time making rag rugs for the Sioux Falls Senior Citizens Center to sell, a charitable work that earned her the center’s 1991 Senior Citizen of the Year award.
      Gertrude H. Lowell, of 1305 N. Lincoln Ave., died Sunday, Feb. 5, 1995, at McKennan Hospital of natural causes. She was born Gertrude Brockhouse on March 1, 1915, in Edgerton, Minn., and moved as a youth with her family to Sioux Falls. She graduated from Washington High School in 1933.
      As a young woman, she clerked and stocked shelves at her family’s business, West Sioux Hardware and Grocery.
      On May 5, 1938, she married Charles Lowell in Sioux Falls.
      Lowell was an active member of Emmanuel Baaptist Church.
      In addition to her husband, she is survived by one son, Russell of Sioux Falls; two daughters, Mrs. Larry (Myra) Feay and Mrs. Gary (Cheryl) Murfield, both of Sioux Falls; five grandchildren and one sister, Helen Corkins of Renton, Wash.
      Funeral services will begin at 10:30 a.m. Wednesday at Emmanuel Baptist Church, with burial at Woodlawn Cemetery. Visitation will begin at 5:30 pm. today at George Boom Funeral Home. Family will be present at the funeral home Tuesday from 7 p.m. until after the 7:30 p.m. prayer service.”
