Faye ‘Mamo’ Gladney

On Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2019, Faye “Mamo” Gladney passed away at the age of 92 with her family at her side.

Faye was born in Maple, Okla., on Feb. 28, 1926 to Guy and Alma Abbott. She graduated from high school in Freer, Texas, and soon after married the love of her life, Jack Gladney. They were married for 61 years before he passed away in 2009. They raised a son and a daughter, Kenneth and Jackie. Faye ran a ranch household, taking care of her children and husband.

Jack and Faye moved from Falfurrias, Texas, to Bonners Ferry, Idaho, in 1988 after Jack retired from managing the Mariposa Ranch. They spent many years traveling the country together in their motorhome and made regular trips back to Texas to visit their son Kenneth and his family.

Faye loved cooking and sewing, making clothes for her grandchildren and dozens of quilts which she gave away to family and friends. Her great-grandchildren remember how she always had candy or a balloon in her pocket as a surprise when they came to visit. Faye spent the last few months of her life in the tender care of Boundary Community Hospital Extended Care Facility, where she charmed everyone who met her.

Faye was preceded in death by her parents, Guy and Alma Abbott; her husband, Jack Gladney; her brother, Kenneth Abbott; and her sister, Dorothy McCoy. She is survived by her brother, Leonard Abbott, Pearland, Texas; her son, Kenneth (Brenda) Gladney, Newcastle, Okla.; and her daughter, Jackie (David) Smith, Bonners Ferry, Idaho; four grandchildren, Cody (Ashley) Gladney, Frisco, Texas; Stacee (Jeremy) Dineen, Bonners Ferry, Idaho; Jamie (Garrett) Hull, Bonners Ferry, Idaho; and Casey Smith, Bonners Ferry, Idaho; as well as seven great-grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews and their families.

A memorial service is planned for May 2019 with details to be announced closer to that date.
