Gretchen died in 2000 on her 88th birthday.
I hope that you have enjoyed the search for Gretchen. It was a unique experience for me and I will continue to help her grandchildren and her son LT to discover the history of the Buntjer family. The family that began their American experience in the early 1900's in the little farming community in Blue Hill, Nebraska has spread far and wide. Something seems to be pulling them all together and I'm glad I could lend a hand in their search.
May "The Ties That Bind" our hearts in love grow each day.
