Gladys was the most loving and kind person I’ve ever met. If prosperity was measured by the number of lives we touched, and the joy we spread, she was the wealthiest person on the planet. My thoughts and prayers go out to her family at this time of sorrow.

From all of us-Our deepest condolences
I remember being a kid in Holt when she owned the restaurant. She would “skadaddle” us out of the kitchen to go outside and play. Her breakfasts were the best ever! Always making sure we weren’t hungry :). We send our prayers and love to you all during this time. She will be missed by so many. She was a Kearney Icon.
Love you CiCi.
