      Gladys Daiss passed away Monday, Dec. 30, 2013, at St. Luke's Magic Valley Medical Center in Twin Falls, Idaho, with her daughter, Mary Rebecca (Becky), by her side.
      Gladys was born in Russelville, Alabama on Dec. 19, 1923, to Clifton Leon and Mary Rowena Holden. She was the fourth child of 10. Although Gladys was raised during the Great Depression and the family had meager means, there was always plenty of love amongst them. She was raised in the Southern Baptist faith and knew her Savior and Lord. Her father was a traveling song leader and evangelist and her mother cared for the large family.
      Gladys graduated in 1943 from Belgreen High School in Alabama. There was no money for college and no work in Alabama, so she moved to Columbus, Indiana, where she worked for 10 years. Her last employment in Indiana was working for a general surgeon, which she thoroughly enjoyed.
      She also participated in many activities since Columbus was outside of Indianapolis. She especially loved square dancing and attended the International Square Dance Festival in Chicago in 1951. She was also involved with the National Rural Youth and attended the national training school in Des Moines, Iowa, in 1951 also. While in Indiana, she made many friends and shared a boarding house with three other ladies who kept in close contact with each other throughout the years.
      While dancing for the USO, she met the love of her life, a handsome young soldier who was stationed at Camp Atterbury, Ind., named Alfred Herman Daiss. They were married in Columbus, Indiana, at the First Baptist Church on June 6, 1953, and shared 60 loving years together.
      Once arriving out west in Buhl, Idaho, she started a new chapter in her life, where Al had lived prior to being in the Army and she was welcomed into the Daiss family. The first night back in Buhl, Gladys' introduction to Idaho, Buhl and the Daiss family, was by "friends" chivalry having them ride up and down Main Street and into Gibb's Cigar Store on two donkeys. The following year, their daughter, Mary Rebecca (Becky) Daiss Harshman, was born Sept. 27, 1954. Gladys always said she and Al wanted to have three children but were blessed to have one.
      Once Gladys joined the Daiss family, she was confirmed in the Missouri Synod Lutheran faith and was actively involved with St. John's Lutheran Church in Buhl, where Al and his parents, Sam and Rebecca Daiss, were charter members. As Al held various leadership positions with St. John's, Gladys was also active with the LWML, also holding leadership positions and teaching Sunday school.
      In Buhl, they developed many long friendships in their church family as well as the community which they will have throughout their lifetime. While Becky was in high school, Al and Gladys also served as co-youth counselors with St. John's Lutheran church youth group, Walther League, with friends, Earl and Lelah Meier. Al and Gladys also enjoyed snowmobiling with friends, Edna and Karl Werth. Since Al was a member of the Buhl Volunteer Fire Department, Gladys also was a fireman's wife where there was a strong bond. Gladys and Al also loved belonging to the B & C Dance Club and the friendships that were developed.
      In 1961, Gladys and Al bought the Culligan Soft Water business in Buhl, which they operated together for 17 years. While owning the Culligan business, Gladys also started working as a substitute rural mail carrier in Buhl until she obtained a rural route of her own, which she carried for an additional 17 years. Gladys and Al always loved the country and, in 1972, bought an 80-acre farm east of Buhl. Although they had Chuck Ewing and later his sons farm the land, they loved raising chickens (only one year), lambs (they were too cute to eat) and feed cattle.
      Upon retirement from the U.S. Postal Service, Gladys enjoyed volunteering at Magic Valley Regional Medical Center for 17 years where again, she developed many friends. In 2000, Al and Gladys moved to Twin Falls and thoroughly enjoyed the home and neighborhood on Hillcrest Drive.
      In 2003, they sold the farm and in 2006, they also transferred their church membership to Immanuel Lutheran Church in Twin Falls where they continued active attendance and membership until the past 3½ years when, due to Al's deteriorating condition, they were no longer able to attend. They continued to share their faith by listening to church services and the Lutheran Hour on the radio and having Pastor Sedlmayr conduct services with them at Wynwood Senior Living Facility in Twin Falls.
      Gladys is survived by her devoted companion, Al; and daughter, Becky of Twin Falls; sisters, Clara Nelson and Lenora McCarley of Alabama; and sisters-in-law, Ethel Votroubek Hampton DeWalt, of Buhl and Ann Holden of Alabama. She is also survived by the remaining nieces, Debbie Holden, Barbara McNatt and their families; and nephews, Scott Holden, Toni McNatt, Marty McNatt and Kevin Holden and their families in Alabama. She is also survived by nieces, Diana Schroeder Lien of Salem, OR, Charolette Schroeder Einfalt, and Sue Votroubek of Jerome, Idaho, and all their families. Gladys is also survived by nephews, Danny Votroubek, of Meridian, ID, Gary Hicks, of Riverside, CA, Dennis Hanson of Boulder, NV, Craig Hicks of Riverside, CA, and Doug Hanson, of Hickman, NE, and their families.
      Gladys was preceded in death by both of her parents and her in-laws; five brothers, Sherman Holden, Wallace Holden, Hollice Holden (deceased at birth), William Holden and Clifton Edward Holden; two sisters, Lavern McNatt and Jean McNatt; all her sisters-in-law; and all her brothers-in-law; also a niece, Donna Schroeder Iverson; and nephew, Terry Votroubek; as well as numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
      Al and Becky would like to thank all the physicians, nurses and staff of St. Luke's Magic Valley in caring for Gladys, especially Dr. DiMaggio, her private physician.
      We would also like to thank Pastor Roger Sedlmayr for providing strength and compassion and bringing Al and Gladys' church to both of them, as well as singing songs of faith and comfort, Heather Huebscher, intern deaconess for Immanuel Lutheran Church, as well as the church members of Immanuel Lutheran Church and St. John's Lutheran Church.
      We would also like to thank the staff of Wynwood/Brookdale Senior Living Facility of Twin Falls for providing loving, supportive and dignified care for the past 3½ years to both Al and Gladys.
      We would also like to express our sincere appreciation to Auburn Crest Hospice, especially Kris (Al's primary caregiver) and Jennie (Al's case manager), for providing compassionate, loving care while Al has been on hospice care.
      Although the days ahead may be difficult for those that loved Gladys and she will be sorely missed, we know Gladys loved life and all the many blessings she has had. In celebration of Gladys' life, it is suggested that memorials be made to Immanuel Lutheran Church, St. John's Lutheran Church, or the charity of your choice.
      Gladys' funeral will be conducted by Pastor Roger Sedlmayr at 11 a.m. Monday, Jan. 6, at Immanuel Lutheran Church, 2055 Filer Ave. E. in Twin Falls, with a lunch to follow. Interment will be at the Buhl Cemetery afterward. Visitation will be held from 4-6 p.m. Sunday, Jan. 5, at Farmer's Funeral Chapel in Buhl, Idaho.
      Arrangements are under the direction of Farmer's Funeral Chapel.
