Obituary for Gladys Stastny
Gladys E. Stastny, age 92, of Bensenville, Illinois, passed away September 3rd 2017.
She was born Oct 20, 1924 in Oak Park, Illinois, the youngest daughter to William and Martha (Ehmke) Haiges.
She married Edwin Stastny in November 1946, a marriage that lasted almost 71 years. Both enjoyed outdoor activities including fishing and camping, traveling the western Great Lakes region of the country.
They also became involved with vintage car clubs and were members of AACA and SDC while often showing their 1963 Studebaker Hawk (which they had purchased new) or 1953 Studebaker Land Cruiser.
As primarily a stay at home mom, she ventured into many activities over the years. Achievements include organist, painting, photography, dabbling in upholstery, other ornate sewing and knitting projects, and gardening.
As an animal lover, there were always dogs, cats, bunnies or even a parrot (Shultz) around the house.
Survivors include two sons Edmund and Scott.
A Memorial Service is planned to take place in the Chicago area with the date and time to be announced.
