She was born to Walter Scott and Ruth May (Draper) Marlar of Madison, Kansas, on July 19, 1921. Gladys was employed by St. Margaret’s Mercy Hospital and Fredonia Regional Hospital for over 30 years. She began her employment in October 1954, as a nurse aid, and eventually trained for care in the Obstetrics Department, Purchasing Department, and as an OR/ER/CS Technician to round out her career in nursing care. On October 5, 1976, Gladys was united in marriage to John C. Wescott and they resided at Toronto Lake until she retired from the hospital. They then moved to Eureka, Kansas.
