Feb. 27, 1921 – Aug. 6, 2013

Longtime Davis resident Gladys Nisbet Reimann, with her family at her side, died peacefully of natural causes and went home to be with the Lord on Aug. 6, 2013. She was born Feb. 27, 1921, in Moscow, Idaho, to Anna (nee Furland) and John Nisbet. The youngest of three children, Gladys was raised in Idaho, Montana and Oregon. While attending Oregon State University, she met and married a California farmer and move to California where she lived the remainder of her life.

Gladys moved to Davis in 1952 and first worked for Don Anderson as a bookkeeper for the Davis Lumber Company. A year later she was employed by the Davis Unified School District for the remainder of her working career. For 35 years, Gladys was the secretary at West Davis and Birch Lane Elementary schools working with five principals — Margaret O’Brien, Ed Chally, Bill Watkins, Floyd Fenocchio and Velma Lagerstrom. She will always be remembered for her cheerful disposition, ready smile and helpfulness to everyone.

For many years, Gladys was a member of the Davis Library Club, which was instrumental in establishing the Hattie Weber Museum on C Street, where she spent innumerable hours as a volunteer. Reading and art were her passions, and in her later years she traveled with Elderhostel tour groups, often going to remote areas to draw and paint with watercolors.

Her family will always remember her as a spunky lady with a subtle and charming sense of humor. Gladys is survived by her daughter, Carolyn Kilmer, of Martinez, and son, Frank Reimann and wife, Joanne Tomlinson, of Orland and Thousand Oaks; three grandchildren, Derek Kilmer (Caroline) and two great-grandsons, Dylan and Colin, of Pittsford, N.Y., Jason Kilmer (Jeanna) of Orland, and Nate Kilmer of Orland; nieces, Jean Macdonald (Hugh) of California, Kathy Arsenault (Vic) of New York and Barbara Nixon (James Wirrell) of California; and nephews John R. Nisbet (Ginger) of Texas and Paul Nisbet (Marge) of Colorado.

A celebration of life service will begin at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Aug. 14, at the Davis Community Church, 412 C St., with a reception following. Gladys was a member of the Davis Community Church for 61 years and was always supportive of the youth of the church. Gladys’ niece, the Rev. Barbara Elizabeth Nixon, is officiating at the service.

In lieu of flowers, please send donations to your favorite charity.
