Gladys Virginia Fink-Halvorson

Jan. 18, 1933 ~ Oct. 17, 2020_x000D_
Gladys Virginia Fink-Halvorson, 87, of Turlock, passed away peacefully of natural causes at hee home surrounded by her immediate family Saturday.  She was born in Forrest City, Arkansas to George Benjamin and Lily Smith in January of 1933.  She enjoyed loving and taking care of her family, helping anyone and everyone she could, worshipping the Lord, reading her devotionals, watching Joyce Meyer on  TV, Hallmark love stories, cooking and cheering on President Trump via Fox 40 News.  These were all things you would see Gladys doing on any given evening.

She is survived by her sons and daughter in laws Ben and Patti Fink, Kirk and Benni Fink, her middle of three sons, Steve Fink, sadly preceded her in death in 2004, however Gladys always kept him alive in her heart, speaking of him regularly.  Those three sons gave her six grandchildren Brian, Michael, Jamie, Kyle, Jessica and Kayla Fink and they were Gladys’ whole world.  She played a consistently big role in all their daily lives, so needless to say her numerous great grandchildren were her “special treat from God”.

After sharing just a small overview of who Gladys (Dar as her family called her) was and will always be to her family.  Her death will leave her family feeling a giant void and they will never stop loving her.

The Fink family will be holding a viewing and funeral at Allen Mortuary on Monday, November 2, 2020 beginning at 11:00a.m. with interment to follow the 12:00 funeral at Turlock Memorial Park.

    I only found out last Friday that my beautiful, gracious friend and fellow Moose member had passed. She was always so sweet and upbeat. I’ve missed seeing her during the pandemic, but my thoughts of her were often. I even paid her Moose dues this year not knowing she had passed. I’m so lucky to have met this truly special lady. There will forever be a hole in my heart with the loss of this special lady. Forever in my heart until we meet again.

    God saw you getting tired I am in cure was not to be. So he put his arms around you and he whispered “come with me.”With tearful eyes we watched you, we watched you pass away. Although we love you dearly, we could make you stay.
    A golden heart stopped beating. hard-working hands at rest.
    God broke out hearts to prove to us, He chose the best.
    The best mother-in-law in the whole world if I had to go out and pick one I would’ve picked Gladys (Dar.) She was the kindest most loving giving mothers, I have ever known in my whole life. There are no words to explain how really great she was. Gladys (Dar) made my life better in so many ways.
    My daughters were blessed by God to be born with Dar as there grandmother.
    I love you Dar and miss you so much and will till we meet again.
    Rest In Peace,
    Benni girl
