Gladys traveled with friends to many countries, even riding a camel in Turkey, and also visited many states in the United States.
All the family enjoyed the wonderful cookies she made for the holidays and the stories she read to the youngsters, especially “The Night Before Christmas,” and games of Chinese checkers, Chicken Foot, Rummicube and Scrabble were always part of her entertainment.
She moved from Spokane to the Sandpoint area 10 years ago to be closer to her family.
Gladys was preceded in death by her parents and brothers, Eugene, Marvin, Kenneth and Clarence.
