President Warren G. Harding officiated at the interment ceremonies.

In 1933, Gilbert was 30 years old when Frances Perkins became the first woman to hold a cabinet-level position, appointed by President Roosevelt to serve as Secretary of Labor. She told him that her priorities would be a 40-hour work week, a minimum wage, unemployment compensation, worker’s compensation, abolition of child labor, direct federal aid to the states for unemployment relief, Social Security, a revitalized federal employment service, and universal health insurance. President Roosevelt approved of all of them and most them were implemented during his terms as President. She served until his death in 1945.

In 1959, Gilbert was 56 years old when on August 8th, Hawaii became the 50th state of the United States. The US flag was changed to show 50 stars.
