Gladys M. Mulholland of Ann Arbor peacefully passed into her heavenly home on October 1, 2021 at Chelsea Rehab Center. She lived a very full and happy 98 years.

She was born on September 4, 1923, in Hermitage, NY, the daughter of Gerald Joseph Smith and Laura E. Extrum Smith. Gladys’s family moved from Hermitage to Dexter, MI when she was two months old. Gladys attended Dexter School graduating in 1941 and was a secretary for Dexter Schools until 1952. Gladys lived in Dexter for many years until she married Lloyd Keith Mulholland on May 3, 1952. Gladys and Lloyd settled into their home on Lutz Avenue in Ann Arbor with their family of two daughters and two sons. Gladys was an excellent housekeeper and mother. Later in life, Gladys began child sitting for her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, and half of the children in the surrounding neighborhood. Gladys was admired by everyone who knew her.

Gladys had a very sharp mind and an excellent memory. Gladys enjoyed passing the time listening to books-on-tape. She loved spending time with her family and friends and enjoyed their visits immensely. As long as Gladys’s guests spoke loudly, they were able to have great conversations.

She was pre-deceased by her parents; her beloved husband Lloyd of 57 years in 2009; daughter Laura May Mulholland in 1967; son Dale Lee Mulholland in 2006; and sisters Alberta Lyday, Harriet Elizabeth (Burr) Gage, & Marian (Gerry) Kleinschmidt.
