Gertrude Jane McCloskey Wapple would not be able to vote until she was 41 years of age.

In 1928 and again in 1932, Gertrude registered to vote as a Republican while her husband George was registered as a Democrat. As a woman who was a leader when it came to our community, she undoubtedly voted in 1920 to bring about change.
