I always enjoyed spending time with you Elaine and your Mom. I will miss Ms Gladys and her perky personality. I will miss the meals together. I will treasure her recipes and always think of her. I will always be your friend. I am so sorry for our loss. Lindy Peacock

Gladys was a classy lady. I can remember numerous times in my early career as an engineer, joining her and her husband (and fellow engineer) Bob at social functions for our engineers professional society. She was a joy to talk to, always upbeat about life, and very gracious in her conversation and words. I have been blessed knowing her and Bob.

Gladys was a treasured friend who now rests in the arms of Jesus. It was my privilege to have known her many years, first through her position at Riverside United Methodist Church. She was very helpful as we planned my daughter’s wedding. Then I came to count her as a friend through countless games of bridge. Her peaceful and loving nature endeared her to all who knew her. Rest in God’s Peace, Gladys.

Our family only knew Gladys for a few days as she shared a room with my mother at Atrium but she was delightful. Her bright smile and sweet spirit, grounded in a strong faith was evident. We feel blessed that our paths crossed even in such a short & difficult time for both families. Thinking and praying for Elaine & all her family.
