Gladys Klaysmat

April 1, 1932 — July 27, 2021

Hibbing, Minnesota

Gladys L. Klaysmat, 89, lifelong resident of Hibbing went to heaven Tuesday,
July 27, 2021 at home with family by her side. She was born April 1, 1932 to John and
Gladys (Pratt) Smoltz in Hibbing. Gladys entered the Sacrament of Marriage with
George on October 20, 1950 in Hibbing. She was employed as a secretary for Keewatin
Sawmill, and was a CNA at Golden Crest Nursing Home in Hibbing until the arrival of
her three local grandchildren. Being the “Grandma Nanny” to these grandchildren was
her highest priority and one of the greatest joys and privileges of her life. She enjoyed
spending time at the family cabin on the lake, gardening, and cooking. She was a member
of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church, and the Hibbing Garden Club. She enjoyed
gathering and celebrating birthdays with her friends.
She is survived by her four children, Mary Kay Klimek, George, David (Carol)
and Rich Klaysmat; siblings, Dorothy Pocrnich, John (Lois) Smoltz, and Marjorie
Heffneider, six grandchildren, Laura (Mark) Voss, Nikki Schotl, Dan Klaysmat, Steven,
Chris and Stephanie Klaysmat; and one great granddaughter, Autumn Klaysmat. She was
preceded in death by her parents, and husband George in 1977.
Special thanks to each of the members of the Hospice Team. There are no words

that you each have a very special place in our hearts.
