Obituary of Gladys Cherry
Sand Diego Union-Tribune
May 7, 2009
Page B-4

Gladys A. Cherry, 90, passed away at her home in Tempe, AZ on May 3, 2009. Gladys was born in Faulk County, South Dakota, on September 28, 1918, to the Rev. M.L. and Sisca Christensen. She was the youngest of five children. Her education was completed at Quasqueton High School in Quasqueton, Iowa, and Sioux Falls College in Sioux Falls, South Dakota. Gladys married Royal W. Cherry on July 11, 1940, in Buchanan County, Iowa. The first twenty years of their marriage was spent with the U.S. Navy, moving many times to different duty stations including Pearl Harbor, Hawaii and Sasebo, Japan. La Mesa, CA, was her home for more than forty years. Gladys filled her life with the work of home: loving her family, keeping house, and serving her church. She was a terrific quilt piecer, hand-sewing quilt tops for more than 20 quilts with intricate patterns. Gladys is survived by her son Royal, Jr. (Lynn) and daughters Fern Plucker and Beth King. She dearly loved her six grandchildren and fifteen great-grandchildren. After 57 years of marriage, she was predeceased by her husband Royal and a very special friend in her later years, Paul Shane. Arrangements by Walker Family Funeral Services in Corona, CA, with burial at Riverside National Cemetery, Riverside, CA.
