Glenice Koth was born July 11, 1935 in Schaller, to Art and Dorothy (Anderson) Wilson. She attended school in Schaller. On May 16, 1954, Glenice was united in marriage to George Koth at United Methodist Church in Schaller and quickly became the busy parents of five children. The family resided in Lawton for a number of years before George and Glenice purchased the Marcus News in 1971. After George purchased the Marcus News, Glenice quickly teamed up with her husband as the bookkeeper and co-editor where for numerous years they provided the town with their weekly news. Both George and Glenice decided to enjoy the retired life and sold their business in 1996. This allowed Glenice to focus more on her passions such as gardening, tending to her yard, frequenting garage sales, decorating her home and visiting with friends over a good cup of coffee. Throughout the years, George and Glenice enjoyed traveling, dancing, entertaining in their home and spending time at their cabin in Spirit Lake.

Glenice is survived by her sons, Dan Koth of Texas and David Koth of Iowa; her sisters: Cheryl of Schaller, Doreen of Storm Lake and Margie of Ida Grove. Glenice will also be cherished by her nine grandchildren: Alicia, Ashlie, Chris, Tony, Nick, Emily, Missy, Frederick and Albert; several great-grandchildren; and numerous other relatives and friends.

Preceding Glenice in death is her husband, George; her parents, Art and Dorothy; daughter Terri; daughter Angela; son Tom; and sisters, JoAnn and Bonnie.
