Description
Gertrude Hardy is Frank and Joe's aunt. She is the sister of Fenton Hardy, the boys’ father. Gertrude has lived with the Hardys for years. She is like a second mother to Frank and Hardy. She is always telling Fenton that she would kill for a nice older millionaire to sweep her off her feet.

Although Fenton Hardy has been a detective his whole life, Gertrude Hardy has never been comfortable with his line of work. Even though she has a habit of watching late-night mystery movies from the ‘40s and ‘50s and a secret passion for mystery novels, she does not think it’s appropriate for the Hardy boys to be playing detective.

Aunt Gertrude makes homemade strawberry jam and bakes chocolate cakes. She trades in her car for a new one every couple years. She never drives over 30 miles an hour and seldom drives distances longer than 10 miles. Aunt Gertrude prefers to shop in town, as compared to a large supermarket outside of town. She pet sits cats for people and she buys only the best canned cat food when she does.

Aunt Gertrude has argued equal rights for women for years. She has dark hair.
