On April 11, 1939, Gerry Nagel was born in Hebron, ND, the daughter of Martin and Anna Nagel. She grew up in Hebron and attended Hebron Public School, graduating in 1957.
On October 26, 1957, she married the love of her life, Vernon Glass, on the Army base at Fort Riley, Kansas. They lived in Junction City, Kansas, while Vernon was in basic training at Fort Riley and transferred to Bad Krueznach, Germany, when Vernon was stationed there.
Gerry returned to the United States and started raising their family. Gerry and Vernon lived in Hebron in a house built by her father, later moving to their farm north of Hebron. She decided to further her education by attending Assumption College in Richardton for one year until the college closed. She then went on to Dickinson State College, obtaining a degree in Business.

She enjoyed reading, gardening, playing cards and board games, playing piano, singing, watching westerns, acrylic painting, square dancing, fishing, rodeos, car races, fairs, concerts, the Norsk Hostfest, Hazen Jam Sessions and most of all spending time with her family.
