Gleneva was born the youngest of seven children on the family homestead in Buckeye, Iowa. She graduated from Radcliffe High School and worked for several years as a cosmetologist before her marriage to William “Bill” Reed on September 6, 1950. After living in Dougherty for two years, they moved to Mason City. There she raised two daughters and helped with her husband’s dairy farming equipment business.

After Bill’s death in 1980, Gleneva spent much of her time babysitting local children, quilting, and gardening. Her happiest place to be was in the kitchen baking and cooking. Over the course of 40 years she made and donated countless quilts to local charitable agencies.

She will be remembered for her independence, work ethic, and support for her daughter and granddaughters.

Gleneva is survived by her two daughters, Sally and Nancy; three grandchildren, John, Shannon, and Kelsey; many nieces, nephews and cousins.

Gleneva is preceded in death by her parents George and Katherine Gehrke; her husband, William Reed; and her six brothers and sisters, Esther, Wallace, Louis, Everett, Cleo, and Florence.
