Wales, Gertrude 1904-1932 Cooperstown Obituary
Mrs. Gertrude McKay Wales
Dies in Cooperstown Hospital
Cooperstown, Aug. 17---Many friends were shocked and saddened when it became known about the village this morning that Mrs. Gertrude McKay Wales, wife of Harris Wales of Fly Creek, had died at 10:45 o'clock Sunday night in the Mary Imogene Bassett hospital, where she became a patient Sunday afternoon after a four days' illness with appendicitis. Peritonitis had developed, and the patient never rallied from the operation which was performed during Sunday evening.
Mrs. Wales was the daughter of Jacob K. McKay of Milford, and was born in St. Joseph, Mo., 28 years ago. She moved east with her parents, living at Milford, where her mother's death occurred a few years ago. Mrs. Wales by profession was a registered nurse, having received her training in the Mary Imogene Bassett hospital and at the time of her resignation about a year ago, she was acting supervisor of nurses in Bassett hospital.
Surviving are her father, above mentioned: her husband, Harris Wales, and an infant son, Warner McKay Wales, 10 months old, to all of whom the deepest sympathy of a large circle of friends will be extended in their deep sadness.
Arrangements for the funeral have not been completed.
