Gladys Holm, Halstad, MN, passed away on Monday, November 1, 2021 at Halstad Living Center in Halstad.
Gladys Holm was born in Anthony Township on May 21, 1917, to Sivert and Hilda (Aamodt) Skare. Gladys’ mother, Hilda, lived for 90 years and her grandmother, Severina Aamodt, was 97 years of age upon her death. Gladys was the longest living member of the Skare family when she died at the age of 104.
The Bluebird School, located a mile east of the Skare farm, was the source of Gladys’ education. Later she worked as a beautician in Fargo, and she was also employed in the cafeteria at Luther Seminary in St. Paul. On October 29, 1955, Gladys married Irwin Holm.
Gladys was an active member of East Marsh River Lutheran Church as well as its Ladies Aid. In addition to being a housewife, she crocheted, painted, and she did ceramics. Gladys would also sometimes be seen strumming a guitar along with her musically talented brothers. She was multi-talented.
In 1984, after Irwin retired from farming, she and Irwin moved from Anthony Township to Halstad. Shortly after Irwin died in 2007, Gladys moved into the Heritage House and eventually into the Halstad Living Center.
Gladys was preceded in death by her parents, Sivert and Hilda; eight siblings, Sivert Jr., Jacob, Selma, Cora, Clarence, George, Alfred, and Elmer; and one brother, Clarence, who died in infancy.
Gladys is survived by numerous nieces and nephews.
