Sending all of our love and light to her family. Ms. Gladys was a bright star at the Brunswick Center at Leland and her presence is already greatly missed. She brought so much joy to us and was never without a word of encouragement or joke to give you a chuckle. She was so full of life, style, and love for her family and friends and was so well cared for by her family. Rest well, dear Gladys. 💞

Mrs Gladys we will all miss you! Your smiles and sweet compassionate nature was uplifting to all who entered the doors of Elah on Sunday mornings for the worship hour. I don't think you knew how much of a difference you made in our lives. We are grateful to have had you this short time as a faithful member at Elah Baptist Church. We love you!!!

I remember meeting Gladys Womersley who I called Mom as she was Nancy's Mom. She spent the night a Nancy's place and in the morning I took her down to get coffee at the dining area where the other residents got their coffee. She immediately sat down while i got her coffee and by the time I returned she was talking with other residents. She was always like that. Friendly and smiling and caring. She was thinking of others and I will never forget that wonderful smile. I will miss her very much.

ANGEL OF A MOM
One day God looked down and saw a little girl he knew her heart and knew her soul and saw peril. He also knew she would not survive without a Mother. In his Wisdom, noted the criteria for a Mom for her. God needed a special woman for this young child, one who would encompass this girl with love. Someone who had the faith and strength untold, one who would be gentle when needed but could be bold. God saw the paths that might be taken and he knew a Mom would be needed to offer her love so true. And God saw a woman he wanted to guide this child. They would bond not by a cord but by the chord of love. And God saw the future and saw the woman's travails. God knew through it all the woman's heart would not pale. He saw wisdom, kindness, humor, and her hands outstretched as they would be used to work, and hug, and give much help. God was pleased and assured she was the perfect one. She would bring to the girl a Mother's love so true . And as the years passed he knew he would say "Well Done". So , God gave to the girl the gift of an Angel of a Mom.

Mom.
For the seven years you lived with us, it was amazing how the three of us got along so well. There was nothing that we wouldn’t do for each other. You had a way of making everyday special with your smile, your laughter and your words of wisdom. We now have a big void in our lives, but we will overcome this because we know in our heart’s that you are in a better place and we know you will always be looking down upon us. We love you Mom and you will be dearly missed. ❤️

Gladys was a member of my church, Elah Baptist in Leland NC. She was always a ray of sunshine on Sunday mornings. If I didn't get a chance to say hello, she would come over to the sound booth, give me a big smile and say good morning! Days that she wasn't able to make it just weren't the same. She was a lovely lady, a godly woman and she will be sorely missed.

Gladys always had a smile on her face! She was always in a good mood. She knew how to get people engaged in a conversation. She had a heart of gold and knew how to make you feel good. And I loved her style. She will truly be missed.

Mrs. Gladys was a dear, sweet Christian lady and she will be missed by me and her Elah Baptist Church family. When Kenneth Long, my husband who is the Pastor, and I visited her for the first time in April, 2017, she told us that she never got a spanking growing up because she was never rebellious. I am so thankful for the wonderful legacy that she leaves for her family and friends. I look forward to seeing her again with the Lord.

I love how much Granny loved my kiddos and how she was Granny to us all, and Mom to just about everyone else. She had so much love to share.
