Gladys Lucille (Olson) Pacl, age 99, passed away December 5th, 2020 in Viroqua, Wisconsin. She was born in Viroqua on May 14th, 1921 to Gustav Adolph Olson and Josephine Oline (Sordahl) Olson. On September 12th, 1939, she married Robert Wilson Pacl at the Westby Coon Prairie Church. To this union two children were born: Marlene Ann (Hansen) and Robert Wayne. Gladys and Robert, her husband of 69 years, farmed in the town of Sterling for about 50 years before retiring to the city of Viroqua in 1992. Gladys was a member of the Northwest Prairie Lutheran Church where she was a member of the Esther Circle and Women of the ELCA.
Gladys loved gardening and raising flowers. She enjoyed cooking and baking for special occasions. She doted on her grandchildren, great-grandchildren and great-great-grandchildren and right up to her passing wanted to be kept informed of all that they were doing even if she couldn’t always keep their names straight.
Gladys is survived by her two children Marlene Hansen of Viroqua and Robert Wayne (Carol) Pacl of Wisconsin Dells. She is further survived by her grandchildren David Hansen, Tim Hansen, Kevin Hansen, Brenda Feller, Bryan Pacl, and Kristin Catani. She is also survived by 12 great-grandchildren and 10 great-great-grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents, her husband Robert, her brother Roger Olson and her son-in-law Dewain Hanson.
Due to the COVID pandemic, a memorial service will be held at a later date.
The Thorson Funeral Home & Cremation Service of Viroqua is proudly serving the family.
