Gladys Anna Green Kreischer
Birth: Oct. 29, 1894
New York, USA
Death: Jan. 18, 1979
Onondaga County
New York, USA

Gladys A. Green (also known as Anna Gladys Green) of Syracuse, New York married Otto A. Kreischer of Syracuse, New York in Auburn, New York on his 34th birthday, 30 May 1918, after an acquaintance of at least five years. The ceremony was performed in the parsonage of St. Lucas' church by Pastor E. J. Henzel, and the witnesses were Ellen B. and Samuel J. Hurd, Gladys' aunt and uncle. Otto was 10 years older than his bride.

They lived in Syracuse, New York, and had no children, but were a fond and beloved aunt and uncle. Otto's mother, Katherine Gilcher Kreischer, lived with them for about a year and a half prior to her death in 1923. Otto was employed for 30 years by the New York Central Railroad and retired in 1935. He died the following year.

Gladys remained a widow, living with her blind collie dog, Stepper. She took care of her father, Oren V. Green, for many years. In later years she was a longtime representative of Avon cosmetic products, and a communicant of St. James Roman Catholic Church. Despite having no fingers but the thumb on her left hand due to a childhood train accident, she crocheted with great skill and made amazing and beautiful children's and doll clothes (coats, dresses) as well as blankets, bedspreads, doilies, dresser scarves, and other useful and decorative gifts for her family members.

Mrs. Gladys Kreischer died at the age of 84 years and was buried beside her husband on 9 April 1979.
