Gladys was born in Windsor, Colorado to Henry and Mary Eichhorn Pope Schimpf on May 12th, 1934. During high school, and after, Gladys worked at S&H Grocery located at 426 Main Street in Windsor, eventually purchasing the business and running it until she closed it in 1977 and retired. The store was well known for its meat counter and especially for the German sausage.
