June 1, 1934 ~ November 27, 2014
Gladys Johnson, 80, Fargo, ND passed away at Manor Care after many years of fighting three occurrences of cancer. Most recently, she was diagnosed with bone cancer which, despite aggressive treatment at Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minnesota and at Essentia Hospital in Fargo, she left this world very peacefully on Thursday, November 27, 2014. Gladys Jaeger was born on June 1, 1934 in Winthrop, Minnesota to Berthold Jaeger and Esther (Hofferman) Jaeger. She was raised on her family’s farm near Brownton, Minnesota and relocated to Fargo where she worked at St. John’s and Dakota Hospitals. In 1964, she began real estate sales and soon became a real estate broker, and established “Faith Realty & Development”. After retiring from her career in real estate, she enjoyed traveling extensively to many countries around the world, fulfilling a life-long dream. She loved volunteering at local theaters and supported the F-M Symphony and attended many exhibits at local galleries. She thoroughly enjoyed gardening at her home and was an avid bird watcher. She worked with the Audubon Society during seasonal migrations and her back yard is any bird’s favorite stop. Gladys is survived by her daughter, Roxanne (Johnson) Napolitano, Fargo and her granddaughter, Rachel Napolitano, New York City.
