Posted in Wykoff Obituaries

Stephen Leo Glady, age 69, of rural Wykoff, Minn., died Sunday evening, March 2, 2014, at the Spring Valley Care Center.

Stephen was born January 17, 1945, in Wykoff the son of Leo and Esther (Mensink) Glady at his great-aunt’s, Mrs. Anna Shepherd’s midwifery house. Most local women without high risk pregnancies in the mid-1940’s had their babies delivered there. Both mother and baby were taken care of for ten days before going home. On September 4, 1951, he entered first grade at Wykoff Public School and graduated from there on Friday evening, May 31, 1963. From 1963-1967, he attended and graduated from St. John’s University in Collegeville, Minn. He played Johnnie football under Coach John Gagliardi, the winningest coach in college football history. The team won NCAA Division III championships in 1963 and another in 1965 when he played there. On August 12, 1967, at St. Kilian’s Catholic Church in Wykoff he married his high school sweetheart, Jewell Miland, who he never stopped loving. In September 1967 they both began teaching in the Barnum Public School District. In May 1970 they left Barnum because Steve was drafted into the US Army. His tour of duty took him to Washington D.C. He worked as a chaplain’s assistant for the Military District of Washington (MDW) at Ft. McNair and at the Pentagon. In January 1972 President Nixon ordered early discharges from active duty so the couple returned to Minnesota. He began dairy farming with his father at that time. In 1973 he and Jewell bought the Roger Shaw farm (the old Quinn farm) directly south of his home farm. He farmed with his dad for 33 years. On March 24, 2004, the dairy cows were sold and he began crop farming and doing custom heifer raising for Trailside Dairy of Preston. In August 2009 he and Jewell sold a portion of their farm and moved onto his home farm where four generations of Gladys had lived: Christ and Mary (Hayes) Glady, Harry and Anna (Raabe) Glady, Leo and Esther (Mensink) Glady and the fourth generation, Stephen and Jewell (Miland) Glady.

Stephen was an active member of St. Kilian’s Catholic Church and after it closed he joined St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Spring Valley. He was a Eucharistic minister, lector and church committee member. He served on the boards of Land O’ Lakes, Northland Farmers’ Co-op and Bloomfield Mutual Insurance Company.
