Gladys Louise Kloefkorn, born March 25, 1930 in Akron, Colorado went to be with her Lord on Friday, August 9, 2019.

Gladys grew up and attended high school in Akron, Colorado, where she met Vernon upon his return from serving the Army in the South Pacific; they married October 16, 1949. His career moved them to Denver, Colorado; Sydney, Nebraska; Fort Morgan, Colorado; Casper and Worland, Wyoming; and Oklahoma City, lastly settling in Edmond, Oklahoma, where she lived until her passing. While in Edmond, she opened an antique and gift shop, the Open Cupboard, and later expanded into estate sales.

Gladys loved gathering with her extended family for holidays, watching Oklahoma State Cowboys sports, playing cards with friends, and traveling the world with her husband Vernon.

Gladys was preceded in death by the love of her life, Vernon Ray Kloefkorn, her parents Guy and Emma Manhalter, sisters Helen and Ruth, and brother Don.

Gladys, or Kate as she liked to be called, was a loving and devoted mother who is survived by her three children: daughter LuAnn and husband George Moore, son Mark and wife Karen, and son Wade and wife Jules; seven grandchildren: Matt Moore and wife Katie, Brooke McMiller, Chad and wife Delia, Grant and wife Kym, Anne and fiancée Corey Martin, Weston, and Alex and her husband Jared Halek; nine great-grandchildren: Carter and Campbell Moore, Chesney and Macey McMiller, Alan Kloefkorn, Emerson Kloefkorn and twin girls expected within the month, and Paisley Martin; and brother, Wayne Manhalter.

The family would like to extend our sincerest appreciation to Beverly Helms, the staff at The Veraden, and countless nurses from Visiting Angels for the compassionate care and love given to Gladys in the final months of her life.

In lieu of flowers the Kloefkorn family requests that donations be made to First Presbyterian Church of Edmond, Oklahoma.

Gladys and Vern were a wonderful couple and great neighbors. I’ll always remember Gladys for her beauty, inside and out. And Vern for his playfulness. What a sweet couple. Condolences to all the family.

Gladys (and Vernon) will never be forgotten because they produced one of, if not the, finest families I have ever known.
