On Saturday, April 24, 2021, Gladys Shuttlesworth Darnell passed away peacefully at 92 years old in her home in Duncanville. She was a loving wife, sister, mother, grandmother, and gigi. Graveside services will be at 11 a.m. Tuesday, April 27, 2021 in Memory Hill Gardens with John T. Allen officiating and Memory Chapel Funeral Home directing. The family will receive friends from 9:30 a.m. - 10:30 a.m. prior to services at the funeral home.

Gladys was preceded in death by her husbands, Worthey J. Shuttlesworth and D.D. Darnell; parents, John and Dollie Brewer; her two sisters, Pauline Bailey and Irene Hubbard; her daughter, Brenda Allen; and her special grandson, Denver Shuttlesworth.

Gladys loved her family and friends. She especially loved her nephew, Ronnie Shuttlesworth. He was more like a son than a nephew. Gladys worked at Bryce Hospital for 24 years and at PJ’s Beauty Salon for over 40 years. Gladys loved social outings and spending time with her family and friends. She loved to cook, shop, and watch Wheel of Fortune. May her family and numerous friends cherish her memories forever.

The family would like to say a special thank you to Encompass Home Healthcare for your loving kindness and care.
