Gladys Clara Adrian, 80, of Glencoe

Gladys Clara (Dalaska) Adrian, 80, of Glencoe, died Monday, Nov. 24, 2014, at her home.
A celebration of life was held Monday, Dec. 1, at First Congregational United Church of Christ in Glencoe with the Rev. Linzy Collins Jr. officiating. David Johnson was the organist. Congregational hymns were “Just a Closer Walk With Thee,” “My God and I” and “How Great Thou Art.”
Honorary pallbearers were her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Pallbearers were Joshua Adrian, Nicholas Adrian, Adam Myers, Nathan Johnson, Christopher Karageorge and Thomas Miller. Interment was in the Glencoe City Cemetery.
Gladys Clara (Dalaska) Adrian was born Feb. 15, 1934, in St. Paul, the daughter of Elmer and Myrtle (Huro) Dalaska. She was baptized as an infant at St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in St. Paul and was confirmed in faith as a youth at Trinity Lutheran Church. She began her education in St. Paul. She moved with her family to Mountain Lake in 1946, where she continued her education.
On May 23, 1951, she was united in marriage to Joseph Isaac Adrian at the First Mennonite Church in Mountain Lake. They made their home in Mountain Lake until 1977, when they moved to Breckenridge. Glencoe became their home in 1982. Their marriage was blessed with five children, Joseph, James, Stanley, Kathleen and Cynthia. They shared over 63 years of marriage.
In addition to being a loving wife, mother and homemaker, Mrs. Adrian was a nurse’s aide in Mountain Lake and, after raising her family, became a paraprofessional in the Breckenridege school district and later in Glencoe. She was a member of First Congregational United Church of Christ in Glencoe, where she served on many church committees. She also served as a Girl Scout leader when her children were involved.
Mrs. Adrian enjoyed baking and the outdoors. She and her husband loved to take vacations with their children and grandchildren. Family vacations were all very special times together. Beautiful memories were made on their trips to California, Texas, Canada, five weeks in Europe, four times to Alaska, four times to Hawaii, Montana and northern Minnesota. Mrs. Adrian’s motto was always, “Have suitcase, will travel, but this time I go alone.”
