Gladys Marie (Panzer) Shriner

Gladys Marie (Panzer) Shriner, 91, Mount Vernon, Washington, passed away on Nov. 11, 2016. She was preceded in death by her husband, Robert Henry Shriner, deceased in Janunary of 2014.
Gladys was born on Jan. 5, 1925, in Oxford. She was the only child of Ed and Emma Panzer of Solon. She was raised in Solon and graduated from Solon High School in May of 1942. She married Robert H. Shriner, of Rodman, in October of 1943. During World War II, Robert served as a U.S. Navy aviator and saw action in the South Pacific as a co-pilot of a Navy B-24 Liberator and later as a pilot of a Navy Privateer patrol bomber. The war’s end found Robert at the Oak Harbor Naval Facility in Washington. Robert and Gladys settled until they moved to Mount Vernon, Washington, where Robert was employed by the Washington State Employment Service from 1950 until his retirement in 1981. Gladys was a full-time homemaker. A hobby that became a passion for Gladys was collecting German “Hummel” figurines.
Gladys is survived by her son, Jeffry J. Shriner, currently of Mount Vernon, Washington; her daughter, Jocelyn M. Stamm, of Bellingham, Washington; a granddaughter, Shelby A. Stamm, a great-grandson, Logan Sweet, and a great-granddaughter, Lenaya Sweet, all of Bellingham, Washington.
Gladys continued communication with friends in Iowa, including Solon, throughout her life. She subscribed to the Solon Economist for at least the last 20 years. When asked why, she said that she “had fond memories of the people there and that it was just a good place to grow up and live.”
Gladys succumbed to congestive heart failure and passed away at her home, in bed, at peace, without pain and in her sleep with her kitty on her lap.
By her request, no services were held. She and her husband are interred at Hawthorne Memorial Park in Mount Vernon, Washington.
