Gladys Mae Carey (Martinson) age 98 of Boyceville, WI passed away Sunday, July 14, 2019 at Spring Valley Villas in Spring Valley, Wi.
She was born April 24, 1921 in Tiffany Township, Dunn County Wisconsin to Martin and Mabel (Johnson) Martinson.
Gladys married Norman Carey on 4/12/1943. They farmed in the Connorsville area and their last home was located across from where the Oak Grove school used to be.
Gladys was preceded in death by her husband, parents, 3 sisters- Orla, Ella, Harriet and 1 brother Merlin and son-in-law Marvin Cordes.
She is survived by daughters Sherred Cordes of Farmington, Mn.; Dola (Tom) Stuart of Boyceville; Sybil Buckley of Menomonie and Dayna Prokop (Jim) of Shoreview, MN.; 13 grandchildren, 15 great grandchildren and one great-great granddaughter; sister Christella Beyrer, nieces and nephews.
Gladys enjoyed spending time with her children and all the levels of grandchildren. She loved to sew and made many quilts and patched many items over the years for family, friends and neighbors. Gardening and flowers were another passion for her as was refinishing furniture and baking. Trout fishing and deer hunting were part of her life while she was still able. She was always busy! Even at 98 she started a small garden at her assisted living facility and helped in the kitchen making her famous banana bread and “Eau Claire” cake for other residents. She was still feisty up until the end!
She will be deeply missed by her family and friends.
