      Obituary: Salt Lake Tribune
      Gladys Benson Nelson, 85, died January 27, 1995.

      She was born November 12, 1909 in Preston, Idaho to Elizabeth Greaves Eames and Frank Taft Benson. She married Don Giles Nelson on December 8, 1930. The marriage was later solemnized in the Logan LDS Temple.

      Gladys earned a teaching certificate from the Utah State Agricultural College and taught for several years, both before and after her marriage. Later she worked for many years at the Shriner's Crippled children's Hospital, where she gave the most tender care to the children placed in her charge.

      Our dear mother devoted most of her energy to her children and grandchildren. She also nursed her husband and two sisters through their last painful months on earth. No one has given more love, more time, and more energy to her family than she. She provided protection and security for all of us.

      Next to her family, Gladys best loved books and the study of history. She was a true scholar.

      She is survived by two sisters, Carmen Lewis and Zenda Mabey, a son, Kaye F., two daughters, Frankie and Lorraine, and their spouses; 14 grandchildren and 21 great-grandchildren.

      Funeral services will be Tuesday, January 31 at 12 noon at the Memoria l E states Mortuary, 3115 East 7800 South, where friends may call one hour prior to the services.
