“Mrs. Ludwig”, as I knew her when I worked at “The Station” (Ludwig Brothers Enco Service Station), was always a picture of decency & respect. I recall one Saturday evening while I was working, she came in and picked up some sundry items (I think her & Mr. Ludwig were hosting a card party) and as she left I jokingly asked her if she wanted me to write that on her account, to which she replied with a smile: “Oh, why don’t you just write it on ice and we’ll let the sun settle it.” She always made you feel warm inside. I look forward to meeting her in Glory one day soon…and by the shed blood of Jesus Christ, I will. Psalm 116:15 Gary Hayden

My sincere condolences to Gladys’ family. I met her in the early 70s when I worked at her family’s Enco station. She was always kind and friendly, a classy lady. I will be praying for God’s comfort for you.

In all my memories of the Boldt family, Gladys was always there with her big beautiful smile. In all the photo of family get together she was there. These could be holidays and family celebrations, such as Grandpa Boldt’s July birthdays. On some these occasions, I remember being laughed at for my ignorance and excitement about normal farm activities. For example, bringing an uncooperative new born calf up from the pasture to the barn and although Gladys laughed with the others, she was always beside me protecting me, aiding and explaining on these exciting new occasions.

Although Gladys quit teaching when she married, more evidence of her patient and helpful nature was the fact that some of her former students visited her through the years including quite recently.

Writing this brings back happy memories and and my dear friend and cousin is always there, Though when we married and distance, work and families prevented maintaining that closeness, the memories and feeling of friendship remained. So in recent years I am so glad we had a chance to see each other again and have some good years of exchanging letters. I will miss her.

Please accept my condolences to Gladys family and friends,

Jean Boldt O’Beirne

I just wanted to say there wasn’t a time that I didn’t think of Gladys and smile. She always had a special place in my heart. Such a kind, loving, honest woman. I am so glad I was blessed to know her. I am so sad for your loss. Best regards, Cindy Hayden
