I agree with Chris Hoyt. You really need to narrow this down. A preliminary quick search just on Ancestry.com shows a multitude of Gertrude Malletts all over the place, including Washington state., although I don't immediately see any in Aberdeen specifically (doesn't mean it isn't there though!). (1) Gertrude M. Mallett d. 01 Dec 1967 Bremerton. Washington Death Index, 1940-1996 Certificate 028081; (2) Gertie Mallett b. 23 Sept 1889 d. 15 Dec 1967 in Port Orchar, Kitzap, Washington (3) Gertrude Mallett b. 29 Mar 1886 d. 05 Dec 1971 Hennepin Minnesota-Minnesota Death Index, 1908-2002. These are only a few. There are many more ranging from Pennsylvania to California. Any other particulars to narrow it down a bit?
