Gertrude became an active member of Temple B'nai Israel, where she served as president of the Sisterhood, and was active in Hadassah. In 1964, the school board in Saginaw Township, knowing that Gertrude spoke German, asked her to become a teacher of German in the township's new high school. Over the next several years, she obtained additional college credits, her teaching certificate, and went from teaching one freshman class daily to a full time position, where she remained until retirement in 1973.
Following their retirement, Gertrude and Carl traveled, including trips to Europe and Asia, wintered in San Diego with many of their childhood friends from Toledo, and ultimately moved back to Toledo. Gertrude found time to volunteer as a teacher of English as a second language to children in the San Diego schools, and for many years helped with activities for residents of Toledo's Darlington House.
