    • SAVANNAH, Mo. - Mary Gladys (Fisher) Flora, 98, Savannah, passed away Monday, March 18, 2013, at Heartland Regional Medical Center in St. Joseph.

      Gladys was born November 15, 1914, near Sheridan, Mo., to John William and Gracie Fern (New) Fisher. She was raised on a farm near Sheridan and attended Star of the West Grade School, graduating in 1932 from Sheridan High School. She also graduated from Platte-Gard Business College in St. Joseph.

      Gladys worked a short time for Quaker Oats in St. Joseph and later worked as a cook, nurse's aide and secretary for Shady Lawn Nursing Home for 21 years.

      On April 25, 1934, she married Franklin H. Flora in St. Joseph and they lived and farmed near Savannah for 63 years until Franklin's death in 1997. In 2004, she moved into Savannah, where she resided until her death.

      Gladys loved to play music on the piano and organ. She was a member of the Jolly Music Makers at the Andrew County Senior Center. She was a very talented writer. At the age of 95, as a gift, she received her first computer and took to it whole heartedly. She wrote her life story from childhood to present on her own blog.

      Gladys was a very kind, compassionate and caring person, who always tried her best to be the right example before her Lord and Savior. She was loved and will be greatly missed by her surviving family and friends.

      In addition to her husband, Gladys was preceded in death by her parents; "her beloved" granddaughter, Linda Weiss; brothers, Howard, Chauncey, Raymond, Ernest, Art, John, Gene Fisher; sisters, Janice Girard, Laveta Fisher, Florella Johnson, Gracie Shanks; sons-in-law, Jack Maupin and Bill Weiss.

      Survivors include her children, Mary Maupin, Savannah, Nancy Weiss, Socorro, N.M., John (Judy) Flora, Bolckow, Mo.; five grandsons; two granddaughters; 13 great-grandchildren; and sister, Alice Rowland, Marysville, Kan.
