Gladys Stalker

Pleasant Hill

Gladys Ella (Ribbey) Stalker was born January 30, 1927 in Creston, Iowa. Her biggest joy in life was her family. Gladys had an adventurous spirit and was ready to go anywhere at the drop of a hit. She loved quilting and she collected rocks and chicken figurines.

Gladys passed away Wednesday, May 9, 2018 at Parkridge Specialty Care in Pleasant Hill at the age of 91.

She is survived by her children, Eileen (Jim) Myers, Raymond (Donna) Stalker, William “Bill” Stalker, Willard (Amelia) Stalker, Jr., Glenn (Teresa) Stalker, and Kathleen (James) Behrens, numerous grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

Gladys was preceded in death by her husband, Willard Stalker, Sr.

According to Gladys’s wishes, cremation will occur and her urn will be interred at a later date.
