Our beloved Nana was devoted to her family. She was an excellent seamstress and cook and was always available to babysit or sew a special outfit. Nana always baked a special birthday cake or treat for each of us. She liked to bake, take walks, read her Bible, sew, and work with numbers. We have all been touched by Nana's faith in God and her unconditional love for each of us.

Gladys is survived by her sons, Garry L. Hartman (Pam) and Ronnie W. Hartman (Gail); grandchildren: Lisa H. Gavel (Kirk), David Hartman (Christine), and Stephanie Hartman; great-grandchildren: Michelle Gavel, Megan Gavel, Maya Hartman, Amira Hartman, and Victoria Hartman; her sister, Daunita Blanton; and numerous nieces and nephews.
