Joan Trygstad on Feb 22, 2018

Gladys was a remarkable lady who always inspired and amused me with her wit, self-effacing humor, and ever generous spirit. She was a Christian in the truest sense. I will greatly miss her presence in my life. Mike and I send our deepest condolences to her wonderful nieces and their extended families.
Sincerely, Joan Trygstad
