Our beloved sister and aunt Gladys Irene Hall Reseigh passed away peacefully on Friday, July 29, 2022. Her kind heart, sense of humor, and peaceful presence will be missed.
Gladys was born on July 7, 1931 in Salt Lake City, Utah to Emil Gilbert Harry Hall and Astrid Lydia Stenersen Hall. She was the oldest of five children and is survived by brothers Stanley Roger Hall and Dennis Reed Hall. She was preceded in death by her husband Oscar Walker Reseigh, and also by both parents, brother Gilbert Einar Stenersen Hall, and sister Judith Vanet Hall Jones. She is also survived by many nieces and nephews who loved their Aunt Gladys very much.
In her early childhood, the family lived near Nibley Park in Salt Lake City, and she attended Columbus School. In 1944, they moved to East Millcreek to the home where Gladys spent most of the rest of her life. Gladys’ grandparents lived next door, and she spent her childhood surrounded by loving family. She graduated from Granite High School, and later from L.D.S Business College. She worked for several years as a bookkeeper at Commercial Credit. Gladys’ parents were both immigrants-her mother from Oslo, Norway, and her father from Goteborg, Sweden. Gladys was able to travel to Scandinavia twice during her life-once to meet her brother Stan after he finished his mission in Norway, and once with her father decades later.
On February 23, 1966, she marries Oscar (Ozzie) Resiegh, and they made their home in Dallas, Texas where he was a private detective. She was the manager for an apartment complex. Ozzie died just a few years after their marriage, and Gladys returned to Salt Lake to live with her parents and stayed to care for them until they passed away in 1997 and 2009. She worked at Castleton’s as the manager of the children’s clothing department, and then later at the Strawberry Patch as manager. She retired from the Burlington Coat Factory.
Gladys loved classical music, old movies, and detective shows. She also loved visiting with friends and family. She was a faithful member of the Valley View First Ward, and served as a primary teacher.
Funeral services will be held on Monday, August 8, 2022 at Holbrook Mortuary. A viewing will be held on August 8, 2022 at 9:00AM to 10:00AM also at Holbrook Mortuary. Gladys will be buried at Elysian Burial Gardens next to her parents.
