In 1932, she was born to the late Willard and Helene (Van Straten) Johnson in De Pere. She was a farm girl at heart. On August 31, 1957 at St. Joseph Church in De Pere, Clayton received a priceless gift in his marriage to Gladys. Having owned their own farm, Clayton and her farmed their whole lives. She was an avid gardener, a great cook, loved her horses and the outdoors, especially visiting the cabin up north. She enjoyed going shopping and out to lunch with her sisters, Arlene and June. Gladys loved her family, and particularly enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren. She was a long-time member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Ledgeview.
