Gladys Evelyn Grant was born on August 15, 1918, in Island Lake Township, Lyon County, Minnesota. She was the daughter of Chas and Lena (Guelsow) Matthews. Gladys was baptized as an infant and confirmed in 1933 at Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church in Island Lake Township. She attended country school and then Russell High School. Gladys returned to help her parents on the farm after 11th grade and that is where she met Mr. Glen Grant.

On August 26, 1936, Gladys and Glen were united in marriage at the church parsonage in Marshall. The couple lived and farmed in Island Lake Township. Gladys and Glen were blessed with three children: Galen, Greta, and Gregory. They shared 32 years of marriage before Glen died in 1968.

In addition to being a loving homemaker and farm wife, Gladys was a past member of Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church where she served on the Ladies Aid, and current member of Christ Evangelical Lutheran Church in Marshall. She was a secretary for the NFO and AAL and served as a 4-H leader. Gladys also worked as a shipping clerk for Schott Corporation.

Gladys’ other enjoyments in life included baking, cooking, needle work, crocheting, gardening, bird-watching, writing stories, researching her family history, playing cards, and spending time with the family she loved so much.

Gladys entered Heaven on Sunday, February 8, 2015, in Minneota, Minnesota at the age of 96 years, 5 months and 24 days. Blessed be her memory.
