Obituary appeared in The Inter-County Leader (Frederic, Wisconsin) on Sunday, Feb. 17, 2008.

Gertrude Clarice Glassel, 88, died on Sept. 12, 2007, at the Comforts of Home Nursing Home in Frederic.

She was born April 12, 1919, in Clam? Falls, Polk County, to William and Emma Glassel.

She attended Polk County Normal School and Eau Claire State Teachers College. She became an elementary school teacher. She first taught in several one-room schools, and later in the Prescott and St. Croix Falls school districts. She accepted Christ as her savior in her early teens while attending Eureka Baptist Church. She was a member of Taylors Falls Baptist Church, and more recently at First Baptist Church, Milltown. She? faithfully taught Sunday school and Vacation Bible Classes, wanting each child to have the joy of a personal relationship with God, through Jesus Christ, as she did.

Gertie lived for many years in St. Croix Falls. She loved the out-of-doors, especially enjoying her garden and walks in the Interstate State Park near her home. She also loved to travel, and brought back fascinating stories and souvenirs from places as disparate as Israel and Paraguay.

She is survived by one brother, James (Marian) Glassel of St. Paul, Minn., and one sister, Agnes (Clifford) Maddy of Brush Prairie, Wash., and many nieces and nephews.

She was preceded in death by her parents; one brother, Lester Glassel; and two sisters, Carol Miller and Mildred Glassel.

A funeral service was held Monday, Sept. 17, at First Baptist Church in Milltown. Interment was at the St. Croix Falls City Cemetery.

The Kolstad Family Funeral Home, Centuria, was entrusted with arrangements.
