Gladys Ethel Munro passed away peacefully at home last Saturday morning, March 23, 2019 with her husband by her side.
Gladys was born in Nokomis, SK to Ernie and Ethel Nadiger on January 7, 1926. The Nadiger family lived in Lockwood, SK until 1931, when they moved north to Sunnybrook District and then settled in the Dartmore District north of Aylsham.
Gladys made the choice to serve God when she was 14 years old and remained faithful for the next 79 years. She obtained her grade 12 and took all of her classes by correspondence.
As the only girl in her family, there were many local girls she chummed with, including Gladys and Ethel Munro. The Nadiger and Munro families visited back and forth and on November 3, 1948 Gladys married Jim Munro.
Jim and Gladys had three children; Harold, Gwen and Brian. They lived on the farm until the children started school. Then they moved to town for the winters because the roads weren’t plowed, but they always went back to the farm for the summer.
Eventually their family grew to include 11 grandchildren and now, 21 great grandchildren. Gladys loved being a grandma and had endless patience with each one, no matter what state they were in.
She worked hard in the early days and continued to do so for many years as a farm wife, gardener, book keeper and even an equipment operator.
Throughout her life, no matter what hat she wore or what situation she found herself in, she was always gracious and always a lady.
Gladys was predeceased by her parents, Ernie and Ethel Nadiger, her two brothers, Alvin and Lloyd Nadiger, her son, Harold Munro and her granddaughter, Jamie Morris.
