Shortly after 3:30 a.m. on Jan 1, local resident Elizabeth Woerke gave
birth to Brownfield’s first baby of the year at Brownfield Regional
Medical Center. Elizabeth and her husband, Heinrich Woerke named the
female infant Getruda. Several local businesses donated a baby bath,
baby clothes, diapers, toys and various hygiene products to the Woerke
family to get their year started off right.
