Deceased Name: Gladys Geraldine Mooney -- Edmonds/ Wenatchee
Gladys Geraldine Mooney slipped away peacefully on Friday
June 24, 2005, at Central Washington Hospital in Wenatchee
Washington. She was born Gladys Geraldine Sturm on February 20, 1924, in Polson, Montana, lived in Spokane from the time she was 13 until she and her husband, Dick, whom she married August 27, 1943, moved to Seattle area in 1944. Dick and Gladys made their home in Edmonds from 1948 to 2005, at which time they moved to Wenatchee to be closer to the support of their son, Jim, his wife, Laurie and their three children.
Gladys led a very active life. She was very outgoing, made
friends easily, had a contagious smile, an upbeat attitude, and often seemed to have boundless energy. Through the last 4 years, as her health rapidly deteriorated, she fought to stay mobile and was an inspiration to many, even as she painfully
pressed on. She lived in the moment and nothing pleased her more than to be with people, friends and family.
Gladys is survived by her husband, Dick, to whom she had
been married for 61 years; daughter, Marilyn and husband Gary Kinman of Philomath, OR and their three children, Joel, Walker (Johanna and daughters, Sofia and Natalie), and Camilla Bettencourt (Dale and daughters Harley and Dixie); son, Jim of Wenatchee, WA wife Laurie and their three grown children Garrett, Stephanie and Monica; and one sister, Dorothy Benjamin (Wesley) of Kent, WA; as well as many nieces; nephews and wonderful friends.
