Gwendolyn Kay, daughter of Milbert and Bernice (Sayler) Dais was born October 26, 1954, in Eureka, SD. This is where she began her education. Her family moved to Aberdeen where she graduated from Central High School with the class of 1973. She was employed at Oasis Viking Cove in the kitchen.

She was united in marriage to Glenn Eide July 26, 1975, in Zion Lutheran Church in Aberdeen. They moved to Rosholt, SD for one year and then to Eagle Butte where she did childcare. In 1977, they moved to Guam where her husband was a teacher, and Gwen worked in the church daycare. In 1984, they moved to Belcourt, ND, 1985, to Wahpeton, ND, 1987, to Fairfax, MN and 1988, to Ft. Totten, ND for two years. In 1990, they moved to Pierre. Gwen worked at Menards when it first opened and later at Our House Childcare.

Gwen was an animal lover, especially her Pomeranians and she loved her son’s cat, Shadow. She collected cookbooks, Care Bears, and vases. When simply relaxing, she did word search puzzles and watched television, mostly enjoying horror and western movies and The Young and the Restless. She had a collection of seasons of television shows on video.

She was a member of Lutheran Memorial Church and was a faithful donor to ASPCA.
