Gladys Wilson has spent a lot of her time healing and nuturing life, and is living a long life of her own as she celebrated her 100th birthday on Monday, July 14.
Wilson has always been known for her love of animals, and has raised everything from skunks to a baby deer.
“I remember once there was a sparrow with a hurt wing, after just a few weeks in my mother’s care, the sparrow was back outside and flying,” said her only son Frank Wilson.
Frank attributes his mother’s longevity to years of hard work.
“She was always out on the farm picking rocks and stacking bundles. She did pretty much everything on that farm,” said Frank.
Gladys grew up in the Hand Hills area near Fish Lake and was married to Clarence Wilson who passed away at the age of 90, in 1995.
