Surrounded by her loving family, Gladyce Joanne Oakland passed away quietly and peacefully, Friday, November 9, 2019, at the age of 91 from natural causes.
Gladyce was the youngest of two children to Christian and Esther Anderson Walsted on May 3, 1928, in Great Falls. Gladyce’s father passed away before her birth from injuries sustained during military service in WWI. Gladyce’s mother remarried J. Foster Campbell in 1930. “Jack” raised Gladyce from the time she was a baby, and adopted her shortly after getting married to Esther.
From humble beginnings in Dutton, MT, Gladyce treasured many of life’s simple things. She particularly enjoyed spending time with girlfriends in high school. Many of these relationships she maintained throughout her life. She graduated from Choteau High School in 1946, pursuing higher education for two years in Bozeman before meeting the love of her life, Bob Oakland.
