Gladys Meacock

AK roots: Gladys as born in Dillingham in 1937, and except for a reluctant six-year stint in Texas, has lived her entire life in Alaska.

907 Love: Gladys has visited 45 states in the Lower 48 and has never been tempted to live anywhere else. "I first saw Anchorage in 1947, vowed to grow up and live here forever, and I did!"

Family Valies: Galdys and her brother Patrick, who recently passed away, were a lifelong team. "We always worked together when we were young and we lived next to each other for more than 40 years. We raised out families together. That's the way it should be."

Whether you were born and raised in Alaska or just have the Alaska born and raised spirit, we want to hear from you.
