Gladys was born April 28, 1921 in Georgetown, Idaho. She was the second of four daughters born to Frank and Hannah Smart Hayes. Gladys was raised on a farm and participated in the daily chores. She graduated from high school in 1938 and went on to attend nursing school at the University of Idaho southern branch graduating with a nursing degree in 1944. While working in the Pocatello hospital she met John J. (Jack) Nevins. They married April 27, 1947. Jack and Gladys had three children, John Michael, James Terry and Sally Ann.

Reading, crocheting, gardening and cooking were one of the many skills Gladys mastered and enjoyed. But, her greatest pleasure was time spent with her grandchildren.
