Gladys Marie Dallman, 83, of Markesan was called by her Savior on August 5, 2016, at home surrounded by her family.  

Gladys was born January 9, 1933 in the township of Randolph, WI to Arthur and Martha (Kantorowicz) Tessmann. She was baptized January 10, 1933 at the family homestead near Friesland, WI and was confirmed in 1946, at Trinity Lutheran Church, Friesland. Gladys graduated from Randolph High School in 1950. She received her teaching degree from Columbia County Normal School in Columbus, WI and taught school for several years. On June 28, 1953, she was united in marriage to Elden Dallman of Markesan.   After their marriage, they farmed south of Markesan for 9 years. In 1962, they moved to Markesan and became owners of Markesan Implement where Gladys served as the bookkeeper until their retirement.  She was a member of St. John’s Lutheran Church in Markesan. Gladys had served as Treasurer for the Manchester Senior Citizens and Markesan Neighborhood Watch. She enjoyed reading, music, visiting and family gatherings.
