Gerda Boffin

The mother of Filibert Bolger

The younger of the two children of Uffo Boffin and Sapphira Brockhouse, Gerda married Adalbert Bolger and had a son, Filibert. Gerda's husband Adalbert did not survive until the time of Bilbo's Birthday Party, but Gerda herself attended it at the age of ninety-seven, along with her son Filibert and her daughter-in-law Poppy. After the Party, Gerda lived on to reach her hundredth year.
