GLADYS C. (HEMISH) TRAUTMAN was born in Canby, Minnesota on September 10, 1925, to Joseph and Emma (Dushak) Hemish. She attended country school and Canby High School where she graduated in 1942. After one year of teacher training, she taught in a rural district near Canby for four years. She married Lyle Trautman on August 10, 1947. They were blessed with 5 children and 50 years together. They lived on a farm southwest of Lake Benton, Minnesota until Lyle retired and they moved into town in 1989. Lyle passed away in 1998. “Glady” continued to reside in Lake Benton. In January of 2015, she moved from her home to the assisted living community in Hendricks, Minnesota.
