Gladys Marie Noack was born March 26, 1933 in Carthage, South Dakota, to Robert Kludt, Sr. and Elsie (Zeeck) Kludt. She grew up in rural Alpena and attended country school. She was a nurse’s aide at Huron Regional Medical Center for 6 years before meeting Siegfried through mutual friends. Gladys married Siegfried Noack on May 24, 1957. They began their 61 years of marriage on a farm near Artesian where they raised their four children. Together they raised cattle, hogs, chickens, and grew crops. Gladys was a loving wife, homemaker, and her hard work contributed to the success of the farm. After 56 years of building a life together on the farm, Gladys and Siegfried retired from the farm life and moved to Mitchell. Gladys spent her retirement years growing flowers, playing cards (very competitive!), baking (always had your favorite pies, cakes or bars), putting together puzzles, and spending time with the grandkids.
Gladys is survived by her husband, Siegfried; four children, Wayne (Darcy) Noack of Miller and children Gabrielle and Gavin; Cindy (Terry) Torgerson of Mitchell and children PJ (Meghan) and Danielle (Jeremy); Keith (Janice) Noack of Vacaville, CA and children Jorden (Jake) and Taylor; and Jannn (Kurt) Dickson of Cavour and children Nicholas, Courtney (Weston), Brady, Elisebeth, Noah and Hannah; and 5 great-grandchildren: Emmett, Harper, Lily, Henley and Aiden; three sisters-in-law, Queenda (Robert) Kludt, Marilyn (Marvin) Kludt; and Ruth (Noack) Lemon and numerous nieces and nephews. Gladys was preceded in death by her parents; five brothers, Robert, Jr., Elmer, Calvin, Marvin and Max (Doc) Kludt; and sisters, Hazel Johnson and Laura Jones.
