Gladys Faye Simbro, age 95, of Knoxville, Iowa, passed away Monday, July 20, 2020 at WestRidge Specialty Care in Knoxville.

Gladys was born on October 15, 1924 in Prairie City, Iowa, the daughter of John and Millie (Surber) Stoner. She attended Prairie City High School.

In the late 1950’s Eugene and Gladys settled down on a farm in Marion County. Gladys worked for the Overall Factory in Knoxville for a while; but her greatest joy was being a homemaker and taking caring of her children.
