Gladiolis "Rachel" Jobe Olean, NY- Gladiolis "Rachel" Jobe of 350 Front Street died Saturday (March 22, 2003) in the Olean General Hospital after a short illness. Born September 25, 1917 in Olean she was the daughter of Jesse and Catherine Jobe. Miss Jobe was a graduate of Olean High School and had resided in Olean all of her life. During WWII she served with the WACS from 1943 until 1945. She worked as an LPN in the nursery at Olean General Hospital for forty years, retiring in 1983. Providing nursing care in the maternity ward for so many years was testament to her love of nuturing newborns. This care was also extended to all the younger members of her family.
