(#2553) Gertrude B (Raliegh, NC)
2/7-10/1991 in Ft Walton Beach, FL  EVENT: Emerald Coast Jamboree  TYPE: AA, Female, Story

Sober 9 years since 1982, Gertrude grew up on a tobacco farm.

She got pregnant and married after the 10th grade at age 18 and went to beauty school.

She first found AA in 1964 at a Women's prison in Raleigh while there on a forgery charge.

Tom I., the AA member who went from inmate to warden, was the first to reach out to her.

In 1968 she got involved in the Program and became Delegate for NC for 1981-82.

But she drank again in 1982.

She got arrested after only three or four days.

Lively, passionate and interesting.
