Gladys STEELE CARR was born February 21, 1913 in Winterset, Iowa. She was the daughter of Delbert Lloyd CLARK and Ruth Ann CHAPMAN CLARK. Gladys died March 7, 2003 in Mount Ayr, Iowa.

Gladys attended Iowa State Teachers College in Cedar Falls, Iowa following her graduation from high school in Winterset. She returned to Winterset to start her elementary teaching career. On June 9, 1934, Gladys married Hugh H. STEELE from Maloy, Iowa. Hugh was the junior high school principal in Winterset at the time. Gladys and Hugh had one son, Dan, born October 22, 1937. In 1942 they moved to Mount Ayr where Hugh became the high school principal, and later superintendent of the schools. Hugh died September 6, 1949.

February 6, 1954, Gladys married Patrick F. CARR in Maloy, Iowa. Pat was a rural mail carrier for many years. They lived in Maloy until after his retirement. In 1981 they moved to 116 Dunning Avenue in Mount Ayr. Pat died August 16, 1999.

Gladys' son, Dan, practiced dentistry in Cedar Falls, Iowa for 31 years prior to his death September 7, 1997.

Gladys taught elementary school in Mount Ayr and Maloy. She retired in 1963 after 17 1/2 years of teaching.

Caleb and Ruth CLARK, Gladys' great-grandparents, were in the first small group of settlers in Madison county, Iowa. They were stone masons and built the first stone house in Winterset. Their descendants built, in their memory, the stone tower which stands in Winterset City Park.

Gladys was preceded in death by her parents, stepmother Jessie CLARK, both husbands and son. Also preceding her were three sisters, Editha, Beulah and Grace; and two half-brothers, Merle and Carl. She is survived by one half-brother, Harold CLARK of Los Altos, Claifornia; daughter-in-law, Phyllis STEELE; four grandchildren, Sandra, Paul, Pamela and Tony; five great-grandchildren and several nieces and nephews.
